What woman in your life has been the greatest source of inspiration to you? No one woman has been the greatest source of inspiration to me. There is an incredible collective of strong and independent women that I’ve encountered over the years that I continuously learn from. A lot of them are mothers.
When do you feel like the strongest version of yourself? When I’m taking photos or adventuring solo. It’s the ultimate sense of freedom. No barriers to be as artistic and creative with my work and my life!!!
How do you hope to inspire the next generation of women? My life’s work as a photographer and photography is what I hope many future generations of women and men will look to as a source of inspiration to fight against injustice and inequality.
If you could spend an afternoon with any woman past or present — who would it be and what would you ask them? Nina Simone + Mary Ellen Mark. “What inspired you to do the work that you do and tell me stories you told?”
