Their last embrace

No words are needed.

TimesHowever if you want some words, click here to read the article on TIME’s website. It’s pretty interesting.

In Bangladesh, 3.5 million workers in 4,825 garment factories produce goods for export. 85% are women. These people died while making 2$ a day. Sometimes forced into 14-16 hour days/7 days a week. These factories continue to happen because we continue to buy the clothes from Walmart, Joe etc. I mean I know they are cheap and I can’t pretend I don’t ever buy from those places, but it does make me think. Over 1000 human beings died because we indirectly support factories just like this one. Not only are the workers getting paid barely anything, now they are giving their lives for it, because the factory owners are irresponsible….and probably cheap.
One girl who lost her entire left leg says  “My mother, grandmother and two cousins were all working inside the factory that day. But there is no trace of them. How can that be?” she asks incredulously.

Just because we live in a different country, doesn’t mean we should feel the impact any less. Whether we want to be or not, most of us are involved.

Promote TRUE confidence!

This breaks my heart to think about these little girls growing up with this kind of influence and pressure.
I’ve felt it, and i’m sure you have too.
Let’s stop feeding into it and
promote true confidence.

Check out this video. It impacted me.

Break on through.

After a little break from taking photos since school ended I am ready to dive right back in head first….. I did a quick one light setup and tried to take a photo to express my burst of excitement about jumping back into the photo world. The thought of a lifetime of photography gives me shivers…. I feel its my purpose.No doubts.
