Artist Statement
Liberia had a very tough year last year. Ebola spread through West Africa. Liberia, already suffering from lack of basic infrastructure, and health care system, was hit hard. I visited Liberia in February 2015. Some say that photography steals one's soul. I believe that photography is an exchange of pieces of souls between the photographer and the photographed. Every click I make, I am leaving a portion of my being behind with people I photograph. In this sense, Liberia has a big chunk of my soul.
