International Women’s Day


 This young women captured at an International Festival represents not only her beauty, she also carries a certain strengths within her.







Each year the International women’s Day has a certain theme, for this year it was chosen PressforProgress.

There is so much to be said about, my choice is to contribute some images I have taken through out trips to different countries, capturing women. This maybe being in their prayers , performing their cultural rituals, carrying for a child or having a voice in speaking, singing or playing music.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site
