Some of the few remaining speakers of America's 80 most endangered languages, photographed in concepts stemming from single words in those languages that do not translate easily into English.  Concepts, which are intentionally poetic, are developed in collaboration with the speakers- almost all of whom come from what are by definition traditionally marginalized groups- returning agency and power to those fighting to preserve, maintain, and grow an imperiled foundation of their respective cultures. The project's main goal is to raise awareness for these languages and their revitalization initiatives.

Awarded the 2022 fellowship in photography from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts and a grant from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and a residency with Millay Arts.


Exhibited at the Prospect New Orleans Triennial in 2021 , at Photois:real (where it was a finalist for the 2022 Meitar Award for Excellence in Photography) and at the Los Angeles Center of Photography (where it won the center's 2022 project exhibition competition.)
