Brown Sugar-07Brown Sugar-07This is an environmental portrait shot I did in 2016 at home.
I call her Brown Sugar because of her complexion and she is a warm and sweet person to have as a friend and like brown sugar she is close to natural as you can asked for.
She is also special in many ways because of her support to me in photography and to the idea in life that accidents are not always really accidents.
I met this young lady almost ten years ago at a vegetarian restaurant that I use to frequent for lunch and after several meetings there we became friends.
The surprising thing though, is that only about a year or two ago I saw a photo of her father. The surprise and coincidence is the fact that her father was my catechism techer when I was a youth preparing for "confirmation" in the Anglican church. And now his daughter,the subject in this photo is helping to understand the rudiments of the African religion of which I am a member.

This is an environmental portrait shot I did in 2016 at home.

I titled the piece " Brown Sugar"  because of her  complexion , because she is a warm and a sweet(charming and considerate) person to have as a friend and like brown sugar, she is close to natural as you can asked for.
 She  is also  special  in many ways because of her support to me in photography and to the idea in life that accidents are not  always really accidents.
I met this young lady almost ten years ago at a vegetarian restaurant where I used to have  lunch and after several meetings there, we became friends.
The surprising thing though, is that only about a year or two ago I saw a photo of her father.  And what may be  deemed  a coincidence is the fact that her father was my catechism teacher when I was a youth, preparing for "confirmation" in the Anglican church.

You see  now, his daughter,the subject in this photo is helping me  to understand  the rudiments of the other religion of  which I have been a member,  the African religion of  my ancestors.
