Her work provides a great balance between portraits, landscapes, and wildlife photography, providing a great overview of both the location and the people that she meets. Her work on the Dogon culture, found in West Africa, is held at the Providence Museum of Natural History as part of a semi-permanent collection.

  1. Thanks for introducing these wonderful women photographers. I am an Indian woman Travel and documentary photographer, traveling extensively to rural India and recording interesting stories about women, culture, traditions to showcase what real India looks like. It is surely an odd job for Indian woman, but I love it with all my heart.
