My name is Florence, as in Nightingale. I'm a nurse - sort of - but mostly a traveller and a photographer. In my travels all over the world with medical missions groups, I've discovered something wonderful about people: They're just like me. They love and hate, laugh and cry, eat and sleep. I discovered that the world is a small neighborhood and that our similarities are more significant than our differences.
I also discovered that food is a common language, and that by sharing our kitchens, we share our hearts, and we are no longer strangers. So, whether I am photographing food or photographing the people who prepare it, my approach is one of reverence. As a photographer, I'm a learner and a storyteller, an observer and a journalist. In my photographs, I point to the beauty (and sometimes the brokenness) of the foods we rely on to sustain us, and explore our complex relationship with these foods.
