I met Lester while working for the Milwaukee Area Rescue Mission. He was so soft-spoken, I had to lean in close to hear what he was saying. Lester stared into the camera with a "here is who I am" look that I hope to achieve with all those I photograph. With Lester, he let me in right away.

I have done work for San Miguel Middle School for at least the past 4 years. I, recently learned that they have fallen victim to the recession and will be closing after this school year. San Miguel bridges the educational inequities affecting Latino immigrant youth. It is clear how the school fills the kids with not just knowledge but a strong sense of value, which makes them and their parents so very proud. Makes me sad.
