I am a photographer who finds great joy in the process of portraiture. My background in cultural anthropology, combined with an intrinsic curiosity, compels me to photograph people and learn their story. I want to pay homage to them through my images. In this series, I asked my subjects to pick a personal totem a symbol that is positive for them, and perhaps cathartic, as well. I then merged these totems with their portraits. My intention was to create images portraying these individuals in a powerful manner, highlighting their personal strengths. I hope my work will encourage those who see it to identify their own totems as a way to empower themselves.
