I began taking photographs when I was 19. Two years later, for my Scholar of the House project at Yale, I spent seven weeks in Mississippi in the summer of 1964. It was there, connecting to Black people who were determined to gain the right to vote, that my attachment to photographing people was formed. In the years afterwards, my interest in photographing people ranges from a mother and child in poverty in Connecticut to worshippers walking on their knees up the sacred stairs in Rome, taken during my year as a Rome Prize recipient. Within those 40 years and since, I have tried to portray people in all their moods, situations, and contexts.
