Sgt. Matt Krumwiede of the U.S. Army takes a phone call as his hand is massaged by his mother Pam Krumwiede, after being admitted for an infection at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, on November 4, 2013. On June 12, 2012, Krumwiede was on patrol in Afghanistan when he stepped on an IED, which tore away both his legs, damaged his left arm, and ripped open his abdominal cavity. The 22-year-old has since undergone around 40 surgeries and is learning to walk with prosthetic legs. He is keen to re-join the infantry as soon as his injuries allow. (Reuters/Jim Urquhart)

I am an American-born photographer with a journalism and fine art education. I work on long and short-form photographic essays. I take commissions for editorial, news, travel, and lifestyle assignments. I also produce photo and video dispatches for online community news outlets.
In my teens, I discovered my diaristic infatuation with a 35mm camera. Under the red light of the my high school darkroom, I began an exploration of memory, self, and environment. I have not stopped since.
I have worked as a photojournalist for the Associated Press in San Francisco and Chicago. I received a BA in journalism from the University of Montana and as a student completed three photojournalism internships. I am a Freedom Forum Diversity Institute Scholar and was selected for both the American Indian Journalism Institute and the Chips Quinn Scholar Program. I mentor Native American high school students for the Freedom Forum Journalism Workshop at the Crazy Horse Memorial, South Dakota. My photos have appeared in Elsevier Magazine, The New York Times, Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and The Bay Citizen. I have shot and produced video stories for Patch.com. My multimedia stories from Montana’s Indian Country have won SPJ and Hearst Journalism Awards.
