Happy New Year, Everyone! May 2022 bring us, individually and collectively, engaging opportunities that build our community and world in kindness and equity for all.

To officially closed out 2021, here is a representative sampling slideshow of images I took throughout last year. The video, 4:30 in length, shows individual/family portraits, community/business/corporate events, and my social change photography series, Voices Of Race.

Thank you for all of your support in 2021. It will be an honor to continue serving you in 2022.

Voices of Race, a portrait series by Kathleen Dreier, is dedicated to amplifying the voices of our BIPOC communities and being a call of action for all people particularly white communities to be social change agents.  Each participant is encouraged to share whatever they like regarding diversity, inclusion, racism, culture, privilege, etc. No one is censored. My intention and wish is that the viewer reflect upon the words of the person in the portrait and is inspired to engage in their own courageous conversations with their friends and family. It is time we each take the time to reflect on our individual and collective histories, heal from the damage done, and create the foundation for equity and compassion for every human being.
