Christmas Eve – Street kids in Kathmandu

Christmas Eve doesn’t have much meaning to these kids. Life goes on just as usual – collecting cardboard for a few bucks, begging, fighting for a cigarette… As outside temp goes down nearly to freezing mark, it’s almost necessary for them to sniff glue to get high and numbed so they can sleep on the […]

Bonjour Juliette Bonjour Kuni Takahashi,
tonight i stumbled upon your work on www by chance.
I’m in deep owe of your work as a photographer, and i’ve been moved by what you show. I don’t know if my emotion will lead to something helpfull to any of the people you show – but i do hope so. I hope this knowing can make me DO something. It sure makes me think / and that sure doesn’t seem to be a BIG thing, but still, in a way, thinking is the first step towards doing. And i thought maybe knowing someone over in France seeing your work and starting to think / about others, help needed, etc / might be good for you to know… Anyway, thank you, thank you so much for what you’re doing. Thank you.

Kuni Takahashi I was pleased to read your comment. It is quite nice of you. Thanks.

War Museum in Singapore

I had a massive writing job and didn’t have much time to explore the city besides hunting for great food, which Singapore is well known for, but there was one place I didn’t want to miss. It was the war museum located at Fort Siloso […]
