The inspiration for this work was an accident while editing. I was editing an image from post tsunami Sri Lanka when my hand slipped while holding down the mouse and what popped up on my screen looked extraordinary to me.
I decided to go back and see what would happen if I explored this 'accident' with images from my vast body of work. I have found that distorting the visual form and color of these often stark and disturbing images has given them an entirely new life and perspective.
What you see is only a small sample of what I have been working on, as my work in emergencies and disasters, especially those that are under-reported, has spanned 15 years and several continents.
