Children of the RainbowFor my 40th birthday, I treated myself to a week-long street photography workshop held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, led by Peter Turnley.The focus of the workshop was based on documenting carnival, the annual cultural festival complete with imaginative floats, elaborate costumes, and hordes of people singing and dancing in the streets. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, challenge myself creatively, and leave with a new body of work.After spending mere hours in Rio, I was exhilarated by the energy and joy surrounding me from the festivities. I arrived on a hot, sticky, humid day, well rested for the long nights ahead of me. Carnival festivities begin late at night and carry on throughout the evening, ending when the sun rises. I was spellbound walking through the rainy streets smelling of acaraje (the favored street food fare) and beer, with my finger looming over the shutter. The vibrant spirit in the streets was palpable. You could feel the energy coursing throughout people of all ages, from children to grandparents, as they celebrated on the streets of the favelas to the main stage at the Sambadrome.Children of the Rainbow is my homage to the beautiful culture and people of Brazil. I attempted to capture the essence of carnival to share with others and hopefully broaden other people's horizons. Enjoy the journey.

BorobudurMy family and I spent a month traveling around Asia on our own personal pilgrimage and spent some time in Borobudur, an ancient Mahayana Buddhist Temple in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. We were drawn to the history and stories living within the walls of one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. Inspired by the legendary beauty of the space, I created this personal film to illustrate what many texts try to describe.Enjoy.
