Seems some people in my neighborhood weren’t that happy with the lingerie poster campaign.

Ian MacKaye

Time sure flies…

I just realized today it’s already been 3 years ago, almost to the day, that I met and photographed a person I really admire and respect. Ian MacKaye from the legendary band Fugazi.

I was traveling and photographing the North-Eastern part of the US and going in search of my hardcore roots, that were a part of my adolescence life. (and still are)
Fugazi’s music has been so important to me in so many ways and I still love their music as much as I did back then.

And today while talking to Nico, a friend and talented theatre maker, I had to think about the moment I was in the basement of Dischord House, where Fugazi rehearse and have recorded some of their albums. What was supposed to be a meeting and about an hour to photograph and talk to him, became an entire afternoon and a wonderful encounter between us. Ian told me that I must be doing something right because I was there in that moment, having a wonderful conversation with him in a basement in the middle of Arlington, West-Virginia and life was pretty good right?. It was…. and knowing where I come from, the road that I’ve traveled… today I was reminded again of the fact, that life is pretty good at this moment and I’m surrounded by some of the most amazing friends.

Malala

Today, Malala Yousafzai’s struggle for girls to be educated in Pakistan, which led to her being shot and nearly killed by the Taliban two years ago, led to her jointly winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

Her relentless campaign for girls and women’s rights was recognized a day before the International Day of the Girl Child and is an incredible strong signal to the world. Education is and remains key to change. 

On my travels in Pakistan and Afghanistan, I’ve met many young brave girls like Malala that, despite the constant threat, defy tribal traditions and seek to be educated. For us in the West, it’s impossible to understand that going to school could mean you get killed by extremists. Yet thousands of girls get up every morning and  go to school to become doctors, midwifes, teachers, engineers, etc…

The images below are of Afghanistan, were the educational system was almost completely destroyed by the Taliban.
