As an AP photographer he has traveled widely to capture important events, such as the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, the excitement at the Sochi and London Olympics, and along the campaign trail with Obama. But being based in Los Angeles he has also spent time photographing closer to home, documenting some of the homeless people on LA's Skid Row. He learns some of their stories and presents a hint of their struggles through an ever growing series of photographs.
