I was lucky enough to spend some time photographing Cameron Greenwood the other day for ESPN. Cameron, 14, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer just two years ago and underwent 10 hours of surgery to remove one third of his pelvis. Thankfully, he has somehow managed to beat the odds and make a full recovery. Despite not being able to run like he used to, Cameron is actually back playing sports and is an incredibly strong willed young man. He is an inspiration and truly a lot of fun to be around.

I am very much looking forward to presenting work from my project Beyond the Dark, Thursday, May 24th for Open Show NYC at the Bronx Documentary Center. It is an honor to share the night with the outstanding photographers, Katrin Bjork, Viviana Peretti, Simon Biswas, and Ben Lowy. The event is open to the public so please come out and join us.
Check back in soon for new work from my recent trip to Morocco for a documentary project about Autism.
I have fallen quite a bit behind on my posts as of late but I am fired up to get back at it. I just got back to the states from working on a personal documentary project about autism in Morocco with Brendan Hart, an amazing anthropologist and a great friend. While I was there I was able to shoot a side story on the aerospace industry in Morocco for the Wall Street Journal which can be found here. I was pleased to see they also ran a slideshow of some of those images and that can be seen here. Below are some of the frames I made for that piece and I will be posting some of the new work from the autism project in the coming weeks.

Really hope this kid was wearing a cup.
It’s been a little while since our last blog post because Jesse was pursuing projects in Australia, Indonesia and Hong Kong in the beginning of the summer. We’re excited to get caught up and back on track updating the blog with new work!
