Details

What happens when a poet goes to a monastery in Myanmar to meditate? She meets fleeing monks, which leads to stories of human trafficking. Necessity is the mother of creativity—without training, she documents and photographs. Next comes Cuba; 21 trips in 4 years provide ample opportunity to channel a poetry background into images of fragility and fortitude. Until a global pandemic grounds her in Brooklyn, and she’s called to join a bicycle protest group for Black Lives Matter.

Compelled by children she sees throughout these rides, The Super Power of Me Project is born, a Leica Award-winning template that could give children a platform to use their voice in every community worldwide.
