Liberia

I travelled to Liberia last December and March with FACE Africa.  During my stay, I got to know Liberia and Liberian people.  

To get to witness people's lives is a privilege.  I am grateful for every assignment I get, to drop in to people's life, and I am more grateful when they receive me.  Now it's my turn to tell a story about people I meet.  I am not a writer.  But I can show you my experience through my photographs.  Please keep them in your prayer during this difficult time.

On the cutting room floor: 2013 Xmas Shoot

On December 8, 2013,  I asked my friend and a drag queen Paulina to model for my Christmas card shoot.  We were playing with ideas of a fun Xmas Shoot.  Thank you for Paulina's input and collaboration, I am very happy with my last year's Xmas card.
Here is my Christmas card and photos I really liked, but did not make it through the cutting room.  Which one DO YOU like the best? Did I make a right choice on my card? ;)

去年のドラァッグクイーンクリスマスカードのモデルに友人のポリーナになってもらいました。1番上がクリスマスカードで、下の2枚は最終候補まで残ったのですが、最後にXとなりました。 皆さんならどれをクリスマスカードにどれを選びますか?;ーD

Jacques Cabaret: Lens Culture website

I created a project on Lens culture invitation only website.  I am looking forward to adding more project here.
First added project to Lens Culture: Jacques Cabaret
This is how it started: My friend Valerie took me to Jacques Cabaret in Boston one saturday evening, some time in 2007... many moons ago... That night, there, I saw amazing talents Destiny Boston, Lakia, Miss. Chris and Mizery on stage. I could not take my eyes off of them during their performance. I knew I wanted to photograph them. That was my way of expressing " I like your style". 

Sometime I had taken years off from photographing them. But they have always remans at special part in my photographic heart. On and off, I have continued photographing them. Friendship have developed. Now I photograph them in color. But this is how it all started... Rolls of B & W film and every weekend in backstage at Jacqued Cabaret.
