Life is a compromise of what your ego wants to do, what experience tells you to do, and what your nerves let you do.

6am in Nagano…  I shot these all within 1 block of each other on the same street while traveling on assignment last month through Japan.

The faces of resilient refugees, project.

Once at the Dadaab camp the refugees are photographed for purposes of identification by two humanitarian officers.
A long silent queue, nobody smiles, no one speaks to anyone else, no one pushes ahead.
Every day a thousand of new Somali people cross the border into Kenya in order to queue in front of the UNHCR Registration site.
Escaping, drought, war and famine means marching for hours in the suffocating African heat.
Identification is the first vital step to aid.
These portraits were taken prior to their formal photographing session.
Embarrassment, shame, surprise and the tears all speak of both the fear and hope of forgotten humanity.
The Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya, has become the world’s largest, hosting some 380,000 Somalis fleeing drought and war.
