On photography for a cause:
“I think I’m in the process right now of getting out of my own way, getting out of the way of myself in order to actually start using photography to my greatest capacity.'”
“There’s a little bit of a curse that comes to getting it young. At the time I got my first [National Geographic] article I was 29. That’s young. I don’t think I was totally prepared for how that was going to push my life. It’s been a real struggle since then.”
