Alejandro Sanz in Boston

A few weeks ago, I photographed a Spanish musician, Alejandro Sanz at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.  He was in town to receive a honorary degree from Berklee, and he also played his music with the Berklee students.

It was a wonderful performance, and very nice seeing the interaction between Sanz and the students.

2週間ほど前、スペインのシンガーソングライター アレハンドロ サンツ氏が名誉学位をバークレー音楽学院で受領するのを撮影しました。そのあと、氏の音楽をバークレーの学生達による演奏、最後にサンツ氏も演奏に加わりフィナーレと、すばらしかったです。ステージの上での氏と若いバークレーの学生達とのやり取りも、私まで元気がもらえそうな、素敵な雰囲気をもって良かったです。

 

Alejandro Sanz receives an honorary degree from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA on November 6, 2013. The presentation followed with a concert showcasing his music as interpreted by Berklee students and faculty and also featured Sanz himself on selected songs.

Empty Sky: NJ official 9/11 Memorial

the-end-of-2013's resolution:  I will be better at keeping up blog posting....
 
I was in NJ for work this weekend.  On the way back to Boston, we stopped by Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.  There, we found Empty Sky,  the official NJ 9/11 memorial to the state victims of the 9/11 attacks.  As I walked through the memorial,  I read so many names of different nationalities engraved on the memorial walls.  I was reminded that how diverse America was... I found 2 Japanese names there too.  
 
I photographed a man who stood in the middle of the memorial, and gazed at the corner of the wall for sometime.  He knew someone whose name was engraved on the wall.  

2013年後期の目標、ブログの更新をもっとマメにすること。。。

仕事でニュージャージー州に行ってきました。撮影のあと、ボストンに帰る途中、ニュージャージー州のリバティーステート公園によっていきました。もともと立ち寄った理由は自由の女神のそばなので、観て写真を撮ろう!だったのですが、その公園にあったニュージャージー州9/11被害者に捧げるモニュメントに出会いました。そのモニュメントの壁にはニュージャージー州9/11の被害者の方々の名前が彫り込まれていて、日本人の名前も2人ありました。ゆっくり名前をみながら歩くと、アメリカがいかにメルティングポット、いろんな多文化の共存しているということを身にかんじます。

モニュメントの壁をじっくり観ていた自転車を押している初老の男の人の写真を撮りました。その人は壁の一点でしばらく立ち止まり、壁に刻まれている名前をみていました。その方に友人の夫が被害者の一人だったそうです。『彼の名前をみていたんだよ』とその男性は寂しそうに微笑みながら私にいって、自転車にのってきました。

Everyday Jacques

So I photograph Jacques Cabaret ( in Boston), i am a dorky photographer, and obsessed with fishnet and other things.  As Blizzard of 2013 AKA Nemo hits Boston, I put up album of "everyday Jacques"  These are pictures I like, you can call it happy snaps.  They are not deep photographs,  I am not a deep person.  I just like them ( people I photographs) and I like these photos... All photos taken in 2012.  ©2012 Keiko Hiromi 

Year 2013 Jacques Cabaret!

Happy New Year! everyone! Hope last year was amazing!
