I artistically photograph landfills in Latin America. I have been photographing La Chureca, a landfill in Managua, Nicaragua where 1800 people have been living and working from the trash for generations. The area is now becoming a methane gas to energy conversion facility. Jobs and homes will be provided to the people there. 

I am raising money to photograph indigenous persons from the Amazon in Guayana City, Venezuela that live at Cambalache Landfill. In this area, there is also factories spilling red mud into the delta. I will be creating a photo documentary about the area, the land and the people. My artwork is part beauty, part reality, part political, part environmental and part compassion. I try not to have an opinion through my artwork and photography. I allow my art to tell its own story. Whatever develops from that could possibly be only powerful and useful to others. 

I am raising money to create a multi-media press kit to show alternative energy companies in hopes to gain interest from them to work on helping the situation. In addition, have an exhibit of photographs by myself and Henry Moncrieff to tell the stories about Cambalache in NYC and Washington DC that would educate the public about this situation through art.
