    These portraits are absolutely beautiful – noble, sad, mostly unsmiling, very powerful. Thank you! I can see the humanitarian in you…

    Out of trial, beauty. Out of tribulation, compassion. You have captured both. Thank you.

    These are absolutely stunning shots. Kenya is truly a country of great beauty – I have lived in Kenya almost all my life and I feel that these photos truly captured the emotion behind the people of Kenya. How were you able to capture such emotion?

    These are such beautiful pictures. The subjects have such dignity and the serious look on the faces of the boys struck me deeply. That was counterbalanced by the laughter of the young girl.
    Excellent photography and excellent subjects.

    Inspiring work that showcases the human spirit in each subject. I just bought my own camera and lens, and I hope someday to be nearly good as you are in capturing the best of human nature. Keep up the fantastic work!
