As I travel and meet wonderful girls, like this girl from the Vezo fishing tribe, I often wonder, "what is her full potential?" What would she be able to achieve, change, inspire, if she only had access to the same opportunities I have been able to give my daughter (the wonderful @jittermeier)? That said, I also am often envious of the carefree, simple lifestyle that a lot of people, we might deem as “poor” often lead. In the end, it is all about opportunity. With my camera, I try to provide a moment of “importance”, pride, and celebrity, to girls and women, who might otherwise be invisible. I try to portray my subjects as “fully formed people”, with all the beauty, happiness, and potential they bring to the world.
Want to help girls reach their full potential? From August 15-October 11, 2017, Disney Worldwide Services will donate US $1 for any public post of a photo using #DreamBigPrincess
