I've carried a camera my entire life.

Capturing what goes on around me was an instinct born of, then developed by my journalist father. Because of his assignments for TIME I was born in London, my brother in Paris, and we lived in Argentina while Dad covered the coup in Chilé; an adventure we nearly didn't escape. I was on a reporter's adventure before I could walk. To this day, "So when are you going?" is the parental response to any mention of a place not yet visited.

My father leads with his writing, while I put the image first. When the whole family went down in a small plane in Costa Rica, I grabbed my camera as soon as the doctors looked the other way and hobbled back to the wreckage, bandages still bloody. Once home to American hospitals, Dad wrote of near-death for The New York Times while I shared my crash site videos and images.

It could be just down the street on a Tuesday night, or 3,000 miles away. There's always something to be seen, and it's so often the unexpected.

Washington DC is my home when I'm home.

Equipment

I primarily use Leica M cameras and lenses, both vintage and modern. Some say the gear doesn't matter. It does. A thoughtfully designed, tactile tool brings a joy in use that a cell phone or computer-forward machine simply does not. High design inspires. Though Ansel Adams is right in his quote "the most important part of the camera is the 12 inches behind it" , if you are able to create art with another piece of art, so much the better.
