In 2005 and 2006, I participated with 7 other photographers in a year-long project photographing 11 Jewish, Christian, and Muslim families in Charlotte, NC.  We photographed their daily lives and faith traditions.  The purpose of the project was to show what the three faiths have in common and in difference.  The Families of Abraham exhibit is still traveling to galleries throughout the USA.
