“A social photographer and a witness of the human condition”

"My hope is that, as individuals, as groups, as societies, we can pause and reflect on the human condition at the turn of the millennium. The dominant ideologies of the twentieth century – communism and capitalism – have largely failed us. Globalisation is presented to us as a reality, but not as a solution. Even freedom cannot alone address our problems without being tempered by responsibility, order, and awareness. In its rawest form, individualism remains a prescription for catastrophe. We have to create a new regimen of coexistence.”
