I’m realizing that I’ve been doing what others call “social documentary” for several years now.  As a writer and photographer, I deliberately intend to capture the world’s intricacies, uniqueness, and challenges in order to raise awareness and promote more incisive perspective. My goal has always been to miss less than most and capture humanity in its truest, most unguarded forms.

Here’s my formula: impactful Social Documentary = insightful Social Psychology + applied Social Intelligence. To successfully document the real-world in real-time requires that the documenter have high-levels of both social intelligences, along with a better than basic understanding of social psychological principles simultaneously. This is necessary to skillfully navigate the complex landscape of societal interaction with all types of individuals in all types of circumstances. This combination makes the daunting task of “seeing things” more clear and consistent.

The world is a beautiful place. Even that which is not so beautiful can serve a greater purpose: to help, to encourage, and to offer hope to others. Get out there and “see” more of it, more often…

Stay tuned-in…
