bonjour! this is where I document my life with my family, things we like to do, places we like to go and random things that inspire and make me happy.

a few days ago I found a note while cleaning up my old camera bag. on the back of a folded copy of Leena Grover's "Trial of the Child Soldier: Protecting the Rights of the Accused", he wrote "search: foreign policy", his website, and his name, Omar Mullick. I didn't know who he was then. we talked for only a few minutes. about photography, film cameras. and that he had just received a Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program grant for his next project on Abdul Sattar Edhi.

heading home after a couple of days in Normandy with my boys. and although there were many moments when I felt like my heart just couldn't bear the sadness (the last time I was here with them on my own I was pregnant with Oliver), we had a beautiful, wonderful time. and for this I am so grateful.
an inspiring piece by my friend Gal Adam Spinrad.
"although his work has often been called documentary, it is actually a complex visual poetry. a successful picture, Winogrand said, was a "new fact," separate from the facts of which it was composed. it made its own potent gesture in human affairs."
