Sarah (last name withheld) smokes a cigarette after watching the Rochester Gay Pride parade with her 4-year-old son, Joseph, in Rochester, NY on Saturday, July 19, 2014. “I’m supporting a topfree society and the Pride parade. This is how I express myself…It used to be an everyday thing for me when I lived in Key West,” she said of her body paint. “Joseph painted himself!”

     

  6. The Hemlock Little World’s Fair | Hemlock, NY | July 17-18, 2014

    This past week I have been assisting with the RIT Photojournalism Workshop for high schoolers, taught by Professor William Snyder. The students learn the basics of photography and storytelling, then head to the fair to put their new skills to the test. The class works together to edit a photo book on the final day of the workshop. In between encouraging students and answering questions, I was able to capture a few images.

  12. "The best memories I have in my life were when I was with my husband. After he died, I was nothing. I lost all my hope….I actually have hope in America because I am not struggling by myself. Here, I am supported," said Nyirazana, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Her husband was killed in 2009 by the gangs in eastern Congo.
