Hello!! First post of 2017! What to write? Uplifting message… awesome quote? Probably you’ve read so many by now right? Hmmm. Maybe a wish! A year where one billion people do one act of kindness a month. We’d create 12 billion awesome acts in 12 months! Brilliant :) Fill the world with love, light, gratitude and peace. Seems so simple when you say it. Focus on the good and follow through with courage, wisdom and focus. What we focus on will grow. Make a list and stick to it. We get this day once, make it count! Even if that means sitting under a tree next to a beach with rolling surf and the one you love. Boom that counts. So here is an image from the most unworldly and captivating place on the planet that I have visited. Antarctica. Hoping your year will be as extraordinary and peaceful as this place is. Peace Stu

I get the chance to speak to media often & am really thankful they give a damn about Peace!.... and also want to know about me & the project. This month we made the cover of Verve Magazine (thanks team Verve!) Jamie's article takes a different angle on the project and really I love it. New questions, views and info for you, just Google Verge Mag for more!

Hello, meet Cengiz! I was travelling though PKK country in Turkey down the Armenian, Iran, Iraq and Syrian boarders. Making my way to Iraq. To photograph the white rose in the hands of Iraqi people. To talk to them about what peace meant to them. I stayed in a small village where Cengiz and his family lived. It was ok compared to some villages I have been to for the project around. But a very tough existence. Power, but no running water. They grew tomatoes and cucumbers. If you were lucky, your family had a cow for milk. What was left over from making the milk was used to make cheese. The cheese changed from village to village I went to. Some cheeses were literally like a really fluffy (think candy floss) salty pungent smelling cheese. Every home had a massive underground oven for making the largest flat breads I had ever seen (bigger than a coffee table). The village was surrounded by dozens of acres of soaking wet cow dung, that was drying. They used for fuel instead of wood. The bread was cooked over an open flame of dried cow pooh. The smell was full on. The roof was black with char, you can imagine the poor women's lungs. The cow pooh was combined with the ammonia smell of animals living inside a shed at each dwelling in the village. After a day and night there it was pretty hard to breathe and I was dry reaching. Meal time was men only. Bread, cheese, tomato, cucumber, olives and halva for something sweet. No alcohol. The people were nice and super accommodating given I was a stranger with a completely different belief system. But under the human condition we were the same. When I asked Cengiz what peace meant to him, he said 'we all need peace, now'

'Peace to me is getting over anger, forgiving one another so we can all live together in a loving, peaceful and harmonious world.' June

This is June from Inglewood, artist and song writer. I spent the day in Martin Luther King Park in SouthLA and saw June! Super calm amazing person with an awesome spirit. I love her quote on what peace means to her. Clinton Bopp was painting the awesome picture behind her and donating it charity! Super cool guy with a nice jaw line too. He works out. So I decided to photograph June with her eyes closed, contemplating peace, in front of Clinton's artwork! The tattooed words on her arm are a song she wrote.

Shot on the M240 with the 50mm APO in close to 100 degree heat, while wearing Clintons hat :)
