Portrait Photographer on Assignment in Northern Iraq


Boston area portrait photographer on assignment in Northern Iraq

In October of last year I was interviewed by The Harvard Press in advance of my Beauty for Ashes Exhibit and Presentation.

Last April, I traveled to Nineveh the heart of Christianity in Iraq. This story published by the Harvard Press tells the story of a people struggling to rebuild after living for three years under the thread of ISIS.

Here live some of the oldest continuous Christians in the world dating back to the first century with Thomas the Apostle founding the Church of the East. They came into communion with the Roman Catholic Church in the middle ages.

You can see more of my photos in Beauty for Ashes exhibit and watch more of my interviews on my Nineveh Videos page.
