Hi, my name is Cheri.
I’m so glad you’re here!
“I am passionate about Exploring the beauty of brokenness and suffering, giving voice to the voiceless and showing the beauty of the cultures here in Central Asia and beyond.”
Let me tell you a bit about myself…
I am a professional photographer with 20+ years of experience, 12 of those years here in Central Asia. I love visiting off-the-beaten-path places, places oozing with culture, places that are hard, and that most people don’t want to go to. I love meeting local people, eating local food (unless it's lung and intestine or sheep brains!), and exploring back alleys and hidden nooks and crannies! I love wandering rural areas and small villages…this is where culture is really found! I love photographing people, but also places, moments, and details. I want to impact the world through my photography (that’s not too much to ask, is it?!) I am passionate about walking alongside those who are suffering, fighting injustice, giving voice to the voiceless, and showing the beauty of the cultures here in Central Asia and beyond.
My photography is an intersection of faith, contemplation, and beauty.
And now, I have added writing to the mix! Writing is another creative tool I have discovered that helps me explore life experiences, to speak about oppression and suffering, and (hopefully!) add beauty to the world. Check out the new Deep Soul Writing page to see what I've been writing.
“You take amazing and thought provoking pictures! I feel like the pictures tell a story that you've captured in that briefest of moments and the story stirs our spirits and causes us to think deeply, and as a result we go away strengthened, renewed and motivated.”
