“Due to home therapy over the past two years, she is now able to walk, have an education, a future and is even required to do chores around the home, like cutting vegetables for the family meals,” explains photographer Leya Russell, whose work I discovered while reviewing her portfolio at WPPI in Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this week.
Inspired by the work of people like photojournalist great Steve McCurry, the Calgary, Alberta-based Russell says she is filled with the passion and drive to document the human experience through photography. The happiness on Samira’s face as she experiences what is for her the simple joy of cutting vegetables immediately draws the viewer in.
