My first LA project is “Extinction.” This is an ongoing photography project covering animals close to extinction. My project will take me across the globe. From tigers to polar bears as well as documenting the people who protect wildlife and environments.
My second photojournalism project in Los Angeles will document the diverse people who speak more than 200 different languages and dialects in this great city. My work will consist of portraiture, documentary, film and text.
So, whatever language, dialect you speak – contact me -this is a long project. Called “224.”
That number will no doubt change.
”According to Professor Vyacheslav Ivanov of UCLA, there are at least 224 identified languages in Los Angeles County.
This does not include differing dialects. Professor Ivanov estimates that publications are locally produced in about 180 of
these languages. “

“Not Formby Ladies Golf Club.”
I was invited to take photographs of Formby Ladies Golf Club grounds. The men’s Formby Golf Club is on the same grounds right next door. I didn’t have permission to point my camera at the patch of grass on the men’s side and was promptly thrown out of the club.

“”You’re Practically A Man” is a personal essay about identity. The scars are from Abdominal , Uterine Fibroid Embolization (unseen) and Partial Hysterectomy, and represent the efforts I went through to try and keep my womb. I lost that fight to a fibroid the size of a six-month pregnancy. The fibroid weighed down on my bladder and I was lucky to get one hour of unbroken sleep at a time. I couldn’t go out anywhere because I constantly needed the bathroom. And once a month, during my period, I would bleed non-stop for two days and lose so much blood that I was too weak to stand. was the final option.
The title of the essay refers to a woman’s comment made to me after I told her about my operations and represents the consequential view from some people that women are not whole unless they have children. A male friend of mine also commented that my hysterectomy was no big deal because I am a gay woman and gay women don’t have children.”
