Sonya Melescu, documentary photographer, human rights advocate. I know I have a purpose here or I wouldn't be here...again...I feel I have a responsibility as a photographer to document the circumstances I witness. To raise awareness for the causes of peaceful coexistence for the people of the Congo,Rwanda,Uganda,Sudan,Haiti,Syrians,Afghans,Iraqis. This has made my life worthwhile and meaningful. I must stay open to whatever life presents me because it will teach me something if I let it.
