The Long Journey of 'The Long Night'

Father and daughter, 17 year old 'Natalie,' who had been trafficked for sex in the Seattle area at the age of 15, sit outside the family's new home in the Southwest.

You mentioned in a previous article for DPReview that you don't recommend photographers or videographers seek funding for a project as intense as The Long Night unless they have energy to see it through. What are a few of the obstacles that they should expect to face?

I guess it sounds kind of elitist to say [that]. It's not my intention. What I am is exhausted; physically, emotionally, and financially. Yet I was entrusted to tell these stories, and I like to see things through, to finish projects. The people who shared their stories did so, hoping for change, which is why I'm continuing with Leaving the Life (leaving-the-life.com), the social justice movement I'm building through partnership and collaboration.
