Boy with oranges, Sierra Leone, Africa. Please continue to follow me as I take over the Smithsonian Magazine Instagram this week (@Smithsonianmagazine). This week I will be sharing images from my newest and recently released photography book, “Human Tribe,” a monograph of 170 global portraits. It celebrates the #diversity and #connectivity of our beautiful and unique visual #human tapestry. One of the many things I have learned during my years of global travel is that no matter how #diverse we may look in appearance, from the exotic to the mundane, we basically have the same universal desires and concerns. Our needs are actually quite simple: to love and be loved; to have a useful place in our society with some meaningful and fulfilling occupation in our life; work that will hopefully provide us with enough money in our pocket to get by; food on the table; education, health and safety for ourselves, our family and our children. The freedom to be oneself is a right that creates the exquisiteness of our human race. My work in post disaster/conflict areas inspired me to give back to the communities that I photograph by connecting photography and philanthropy through establishing my own non-profit, Faces of Hope. This non-profit globally supports women and children’s rights by creating visual awareness and donating directly to grassroots organizations that help sustain them. Everyday I ask myself what kindness, big or small, can I do today for a stranger? What can you do? Can we all work to be a little kinder to one another?
