I backpacked from London to Istanbul and photographed over 600 strangers.
While planning my trip, I remember worrying that I wouldn’t have anything in common with the people I encountered overseas. We were separated by nationality, race, religion, creed, tradition, culture and language, and I worried that these barriers would be insurmountable.
The camera became a tool, or an excuse, to explore these barriers, and I soon realized, as I met and talked with strangers, that we had everything in common. They were woven as threads, with me, into the complex, ever-strecthing fabric of the human family.
These images, for me, are an affirmation of our interconnectedness.
