Child of Syrian Migrants, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon

At the time this image was made, Syria was more stable than Lebanon. Regardless this young child and her family has migrated to the Bekaa Valley in search of better employment. Although they lived in tents and lacked anything resembling modern conveniences, they did at least have work and hope for a better future.

A decade or so later, I wonder about this young girl and her family. Where are they living now? Are they still in Lebanon or are they living in Syria? Have they migrated once again, perhaps to Europe now?

This is where my photography was born, with this young girl and her friends in the Bekaa Valley of my homeland, Lebanon. A simple taxi ride to their area and a subsequent cup of tea gave birth to this work, two decades of photography and hundreds of thousands of images. 

The effects of the hot sun and dry wind can be seen on her skin, and in the texture of her hair. Most wear shirts and sweaters with words they will never understand. They play in the dirt paths in front of the tents and as soon as they reach working age, they begin walking down lanes of vegetables for a dozen hours each day for less than the price of a cup of coffee overseas.

When each of us purchases such at our local coffee shop, we are putting on the countertop the amount that this young girl works an entire day for under very difficult conditions. This applies to me of course, and makes me pause almost every single time.

I do hope that she and all children under such conditions are safer today than yesterday, and that such violence can be a thing of the past in the near future. I understand that to have this hope is to be naive, nonetheless I have it.

Rainbow + 1954 Chevrolet, La Habana, Cuba, Summer of 2015

As I look at this photograph of a rainbow through the glass of Alejandro's 1954 Chevrolet, I am hopeful that the changes coming will be as beautiful and abundant for all as this rainbow was that afternoon.

Help needed with photo workflow

I really need to get a better workflow for my photos. Today it more or less a mess. I tried earlier this year to have 2 different Lightroom catalogs one for my 365-project photos and one for the rest (called misc) and I also created one for my trip to Portugal and one for SF. I also take more or less all raw files (I used to keep the JPGs as well but my disc got filled up so I got rid of them) and put them on an external disc that is backed up to my NAS. All edited/selected photos are uploaded to my Google Photos account and my auroras are also uploaded to my flickr account.

I have several SD-card I switch between and I seams to loop thorough 9999 photos several times so right now I have to create new folders when dumping the images to the external disc so I don't overwrite older pic with the same name.

I don't like my OS X Photos so I will not switch to that.

I Edit in Lightroom and save original files in an imported catalog (sometimes all images and sometimes just the once I edit and like).

I have no problem to pay for software that makes my life easier.

So any good workflows out there that could help me sort out this mess? I'm not sure if I'll go back and sort out the old mess but I don't want to enhance it with 2016 photos as well.

"The great elephant", Nantes, France
"Les Machines de l'Ile" is a totally new art project. Born from the imagination of François  Delarozière and Pierre Orefice , it stands at the crossroads of the "invented worlds" of Jules Verne, the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci and the industrial history of Nantes, on the exceptional site of former shipyards.

Magdalena + Boulders, Los Angeles, California, 2012

This past year we missed each other, but shortly after my return we reconnected and have promised to collaborate in the springtime. In the meantime our photographs from 2012 will do well in helping me remember this most beautiful spirit. 

Countless rolls of film have been exposed in an attempt to document her timeless features, and her incomparable talents. She is never the same year to year, even minute to minute. There is something about her which is very difficult to describe, even to photograph. This difficulty however is embraced, for she pushes me in the best of ways. 

For this session we were to finish our collaboration and split up before my afternoon session when Magdalena asked to come along. I of course quickly responded in the positive and embraced the chance to photograph her twice in one day. 

We arrived to photograph Timothy and he had very little to wear. So Magdalena and her friend took the time to put a few pieces together for him, selflessly and without hesitation. We drove up a small mountain, and then walked the rest of the way. Each took their turn on these boulders, and braved the incredible wind for the sake of the images.

I look forward to seeing her in May, and to doing this all over again!

Young Student, Nuh, Haryana, Humana People to People India, 2015

Earlier this year we visited the new schools in this region and were more than pleasantly surprised at the reception. The classrooms were full, and the teachers were from the same villages as well. Humana People to People India had worked extremely hard in organizing these schools, for they faced as many obstacles in doing so here as they had in Rajasthan.

In many of these villages girls lack access to formal education, even though government schools exist nearby. Traditional attitudes prevent such from happening, attitudes experienced by me as well during my week or so in this area. So to see the schools up and running, with the support of the families and the elders of the communities, gave me an immense sense of happiness. Whenever a doubt comes into my mind regarding this work, I look at these images and regain my composure.

This portrait was made in the courtyard of the teacher's home, also the school. The teacher's father is quite elegant and more than understanding, allowing his daughter to attain higher education while at the same time donating a room from his own home for the classes.

This was the spot where we had tea on more than several occasions, and an oasis in a chaotic world for these beautiful girls. I look forward to visiting the schools in less than two months, and seeing the progress that has been made, from 75 girls to over 400 girls attending classes!
