THE GUARDIAN newspaper online. This story occurred while I was photographing for Sauti za Busara 2013. Soon after uploading my images to Demotix, it was purchased as stock from their partner, Corbis. While I was proud to have an image published in the Guardian, I had not idea that when I was photographing little kids playing, that it would be used to portray such a different story. This experience has been a motivator for me to return to photojournalism with more objectivity and onus. SAUTI ZA BUSARA: Official Photographer for Zanzibar Music Festival, 2013. CAMPO AC: Images used to support the environmental conservation work of Innovando la Tradicion AC, Mexico (2013) HOMELAND: Most of the color has been removed from this image except the blue (to reveal the insane amount of security) and red (to emphasis the flag). This is at the Denver International Airport. I shared it online on Sept.11 as a statement of what we have become. The image was bought as a stock photo and I found it 'interesting' that Homeland magazine has used it to celebrate what I am criticizing. I suppose the 'truth is in the eye of the beholder'.
