As a fine art photographer, I try to evoke feelings, to make images that are much bigger than us. For the image Javeena and Ganesha, the impact of strong bond between animals and humans, the meaning of the future of young girls in developing countries, the pure love and respect for each other, and so much more was deeply felt.

But nothing could fulfill the acceptance of the image as much as the following quote from Sameen: “I wish I could have told you yesterday how much your photos of Javeena and Ganesha touched me.  I couldn’t, because everytime I tried to talk about it, I was overwhelmed by emotion and was going to cry.  I am not sure what it is about your work that touched me so strongly.  I have never experienced that before when looking at anyone’s art.  But there is something you have managed to capture that had a profound impact on me.

Thank you so much for what you do and what you are doing for that sweet young girl.  I am a high school math teacher and value education so much.  We need more people in the world like you.  Especially these days. Stay golden, ” – Sameen (June 2017)
