About

CCM-101209-Charlie-309-mas

I am a freelance photojournalist, multimedia storyteller and educator who is dedicated to documenting stories of social significance.

Over the last several years I’ve worked on issues ranging from the plight of African migrants entering Europe to the troubling issues of climate change and political unrest in the Maldives. While my projects have taken me to various parts of the world, I am currently focused on contemporary issues in the United States. A sensitive eye for color, the use of complex compositions and the ability to create provocative, arresting imagery that engages the audience are hallmarks of my work. I use images to tell stories that aren’t being told, to provide glimpses of the human condition in all its complexity, and to tap into emotions that challenge my audience.

I bring a diverse background to the fields of photography and journalism. I have a B.A. in International Relations and Biology from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Prior to my career in photography, I worked 10 years in finance. Since earning a Masters in Photojournalism from the University Autónoma of Barcelona, I’ve received several international awards, including the Sony World Photography Awards, the Environmental Photographer of the Year Awards, the Travel Photographer of the Year Awards and the PX3 Prix de la Photographie.

I am a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Boston Globe and a founding member of Prime Collective, a cooperative of international photojournalists dedicated to using photography to tell important stories about the world we live in. To support my documentary and issues oriented projects, I work with corporate and non-profit clients on projects that utilize documentary-style storytelling and issues-oriented projects.

I live in Boston, Massachusetts with my wife and son. También hablo español.
