'The Journey of a Dream' and finding beauty in brokenness
SUNDAY 03 AUGUST, 4.00PM
I'll speak about being a photographer and what that has meant to me. How it helps me to interact with the world and my own experience of being in it.
My talk will follow the journey of The Super Power Baby Project over terrain, which spans my photography career. It encompasses the highs, lows, lessons learned along the way and the incredible discovery that everything is connected.
Specifics will include business beginnings, what to do with unexpected winnings, creating a crowd, funding a dream and arriving at a destination which is a book that celebrates diversity, beauty and distinctiveness.
