Image of the Day - 5th November

Shooting stock in New York a couple of years ago I ended up (as does everyone) at the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island in the middle of New York Harbour.  One of my favorite images from the trip was the one above - with the visitor in his 'Russia' jacket, hands in pockets, looking up at the statue and all it represents.

The entire 5 day trip was shot on one single lens - a tilt shift 24mm which gave a slightly different perspective to the images and hopefully makes them stand out at least slightly from the billions of other images shot around the city.

Oxfam America/Rockefeller Foundation commission

Earlier in the year I had a 3 week shoot in a number of East African countries for Oxfam America and the Rockefeller Foundation.  Material from the shoot was ultimately destined for presentation at at the recent summit on "Realizing the Potential of African Agriculture: Catalytic Innovations for Growth" held in Abuja, Nigeria.  The summit was attended by not only numerous African ministers prime ministers but also former UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan.

Some of the material used is shown below.
