Hausa–Fulani girl - Nigeria

The Hausa- Fulani people are on of the largest ethnic groups in Nigeria, a country with over 300 ethnic groups. The group is a fusion of the Hausa and Fulani people, whose cultures have become intertwined.

I was recently commissioned to photograph five generations of descendants of Solomon Northup, author of “12 Years a Slave”. The feature can be seen in this week’s newsstand ‘Oscar’s Edition’ of The Hollywood Reporter as well as here.

However small, I feel honored to play a role in the sharing of Solomon Northup’s legacy. It was definitely an experience that I’ll always treasure. Enjoy!


Virginia Woolf and Lytton Strachey photographed by Lady Ottoline Morrell. c.1923.

“Nothing is easier or more intimate than a talk with Lytton. If he is less witty, he is more humane.”

–Virginia Woolf, from a diary entry dated 22 January 1919.


A few pictures from yesterday’s Creme de la Garderobe. Thank you everyone! It was a lovely and warm hearted day!
