Shanghai never fails to surprise you. As a photographer living in this city, you can never be at a loss for impressions. Even time travel is possible if you are willing to go out of your way to visit the film park in Songjiang. Every time I went there I was able to capture a fantastically surreal film set where time stops and life is reenacted to show a sense of times gone by. And where else in the world can you just walk up to the set and photograph it?

I love Shanghai <3

when the imagination runs free~ we love Halloween

Every year our little family waits for Halloween to step out of the ordinary into a little something extraordinary; because life is just that; extraordinary; until we forget. I find so much joy in planning events since my daughter was born 9 years ago and together we plot and plan and create. Last year we had the idea to create Halloween characters with her and her friends making studio portraits with them in costume and this year we will do that again. Here are a few of our favorite portraits from last year.

Day Three Hundred Thirteen, December 1, 2011

ugly

After yesterday’s post and reading all the responses from everyone about guns, violence and war, I have been in contemplation about the subject. Today I visited a film studio in Songjiang, Shanghai and one of the sets photographed here depicts a burnt down, war ravaged village. It got me thinking about war, and the years that I had to experience it in Lebanon first hand since early childhood and I could not find one pretty thing about it. War is ugly, its starts ugly and it ends ugly.
