I’ve made it my mission to tell the sorts of stories that tend to go untold. This drive has taken me to a week long Vodou festival in Souvenance, Haiti and to the beaches roamed by child sex workers in Mombasa, Kenya. I’ve talked to artists in the world’s second largest refugee camp, a self-taught engineer who hopes to bring aquaponics to Abu Dhabi, Jimmy Hoffa Jr., a model who walks the runway in both menswear and womenswear, T.S.A. officials, Congressman Keith Ellison, a man who studies the sounds fish make, a man who studies the impact of wiring electricity into the brain, a man who tracks the blackmarket sale of conflict antiquities, a woman who had an ISIS-themed wedding in Egypt, a woman who runs a chain of luxury hotels in Myanmar, a Massachusetts State House lobbyist, mourners outside of an Apple store after Steve Jobs’ death, a pair of ghost hunters, and two teenage sisters who ran away from female genital mutilation in Kenya and a group of women working to the end the practice in the U.S. The list goes on. And so does my work. Here's a small sampling of it. -- B.A.
