Several months ago I was asked to participate in a project by the Swedish non-profit foundation Expressions of Humankind foundation called ADAY. The foundation supports scientific research and education centered around the photographic image and the written word and ADAY was an extension of that work. May 15, 2012 was chosen as a day for people worldwide to photograph, “what is close to you – what matters to you?” I was still in Chiapas, Mexico at the time and spent the day traveling around photographing this enchanting part of the planet.
Out of almost a 100,000 images submitted from that day, from more than 160 countries, one of mine, the one here, was chosen to be included in the book, “A Day In the World”, which was published in October. I am humbled to be included in this project and to be associated with work of this caliber. It is inspiring and I look forward to expanding my portfolio more internationally, with more genres, and working even harder to make more poignant images and more art.
