    • Little Yellow Car

    • Fatima Maria Fernanda

    • Guatemala Term

    • Moroccan Man Watching the Crowd

    • Independent Travel

    • In Touch With Nature

    • Travel Writing
    • Butterflies were swarming everywhere while we walked on the Brazil side of the Iguassu Falls. They were super friendly and were landing on everything, we finally got a few on our hands and snapped away with our cameras.
    • Flip Flop Cemetery

    • Independent Missions Trip
    • This is among the remaining debris in a village devastated by the tsunami. I literally stumbled upon this mound of flip-flops that had been scattered and washed ashore since the waves rushed through. Some were distorted; some were torn in pieces,...

    • This is a photograph selected from a project I worked on through the entirety of the NYCAMS semester, studying the nuances of typical tourist behavior. This photo was taken while circling the promenade under the Statue of Liberty pretending to be a...
