  • About

I am a Pulitzer Prize-winning former reporter and editor for The Washington Post and Newsday, and started photographing as a young teenager. The week after I turned 17, I covered the historic March on Washington for a weekly newspaper in Connecticut, and I haven't stopped shooting since.


For 15 years I've taught documentary photography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and I've also taught at the Harvard University Extension School, the Maine Media Workshops, and in private workshops.


I am the author of 10 books on medically related subjects. My photography has appeared in, among other publications, The Boston Globe, The St. Louis Post Dispatch, The Baltimore Sun, Newsday, the New England Journal of Medicine, the Christian Science Monitor, and Time Magazine. Some 30 images from my ongoing subway project are included in the permanent collection of the Boston Public Library.


My work also has been featured in Huffington Post, on Social Documentary Network,  on WGBH  and WBUR, and in Boston Magazine.
