In July 1987, after working for 16 years as an advertising and corporate photographer, I began new careers as a photojournalist and then a documentary photographer in Latin America. The experiences I had, the events I saw, and the people I met transformed and enriched my life immeasurably.
I am forever humbled and grateful to all the people who generously allowed me to see into their lives and who selflessly guided me through their streets. I am also thankful to the experienced journalists who allowed me to tag along with them and learn the ropes. It was a great ride. These pictures and stories document this voyage of discovery.
