This is unquestionably the most difficult work I've done, both emotionally and technically. Most of the stories are, at least in part, harrowing. Some of the photo ideas have required me to learn new skills or raise the level of my existing ones. But so far, it's been a great experience for me, and more importantly, for most of the subjects. And there are, hopefully, some exciting new stories to come that I can't yet show, and am not ready to talk about. As difficult as it is for me, it's infinitely more difficult for the survivors. I encourange them to back out at any time if they feel uncomfortable, and many of them do.
