Co-Founder of En Foco, Inc.

"As the eyes that report on events, places and probe into people's lives, the photographer must guard against the perils of dishonesty and distortion, which too often have served journalism disguised as truth or in the name of artistic freedom. For what does it profit art if even one child is hurt by a lie?"
