Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa...a country torn by war, poverty, illness--truly, a corner of the world forgotten by most.
Look with me into the eyes of some of the most incredible people in the world. Come meet their children--many of whom have never had even a pencil of their very own or new shoes or a chance to go to school. Share a smile with their elderly, wrinkled and tired but still smiling. See a newborn's first lusty cry. Read the challenge in a young boy's eyes...
And when you are finished, as each image continues to make its way through your mind and into your heart, I dare you to take the next logical step. I dare you to ask yourself what your response SHOULD be, and then, what your response WILL be.
I dare you!
An incredible medium for preserving and remembering special times, places and faces which so often fade over the years, photobooks have come into their own in recent years, and in the print-on-demand self-publishing world, Blurb.com is one of the pack leaders. A freelance photographer with a style that's an eclectic mix of photojournalism (documentary) and fine art photography (you can think of it as National Geographic with a splash of Vanity Fair or Elle!), I treasure the opportunity to put together custom photobooks for my clients using the services of Blurb.com.
