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!

'Peace to me means calm and an ability to pursue dreams and ambitions unencumbered' We would like to welcome Stan Walker to Peace in 10,000 Hands! I photographed singing legend and star Stan holding the white rose, an ancient symbol of peace, at the end of an awesome performance he did for a very special event for the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Auckland, New Zealand. Humble and generous. Thank you Stan.

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 :)

Story
Tagline
I am photographing a single white rose in the hands of 10,000 people from every country on the planet.
Introduction
Hi, thanks for reading! I have been in various creative fields for over 20 years, starting an advertising agency, event agency, publishing company, catering company... and moved into brand activation and engagement. Now I sit on a couple of boards and am focused on my passion, photography and helping people, and have started a global art project called 'Peace in 10,000 Hands'.

All images for the project are taken on Leica equipment, M240 and S for hand shots and D-Lux and X2 for the travel images for web, books... also have a Monochrom I use for portraits and cityscapes.

I am lucky to have some Leica lens that have been handed down to me from my grandfather which will also be used on this project, would make him very proud and make me nostalgic. 

Living the dream and blessed to meet so many amazing people on this project!
