In the artist’s own words: “This is a friend of mine, Savannah. She spent months of her life in Puerto Barrios, Guatemala choosing to love people who are in desperate situations. She is a woman that brings joy to other people just by being around them, even without being able to speak their language. I captured this image of her one day at the local garbage dump, doing what she does best; putting a smile on someone else's face."
