Haiti: United Hearts Orphanage

Montrouis, Haiti

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Haiti again a few months ago to help do media projects with my talented friend, Timothy Euken. The orphanage we stayed at truly touched our lives! I was able to do portraits of all the children and put together a book for future sponsorship in the States. United Hearts takes care of many young children that have either been abandoned or lost their parents. United Hearts also has a school during the day that’s soul purpose is to educate the orphans as well as children in the community that surrounds them. We also were able to put together this video below – take a moment to watch it and share it with friends!

Broken: A Call to Restore the House of Humanity

In 2012 my team and I from PhotogenX released the book, Broken: a call to restore the house of Humanity that uses the art of photography and writing to breathe life and dignity back into desperate situations across the world. From life in red light districts to war-torn nations, this book redefines how we as global citizens view “family” and “home,” and more importantly, how to bring forth restoration. Masterfully captured, Broken is a combination of stunning photography, prose, on the field stories, and concrete application that is designed to engage both the mind and the heart.

All proceeds from Broken go towards supporting the Kunene family of Swaziland. Featured in the book for their unparalleled faith and generosity, parents Petros and Elizabeth welcomed seven AIDS orphans (in addition to their eight biological kids) into their home and into their hearts. The support from Broken helps them cover living costs and allows the children to attend school.
