In June of 2021, I traveled to the midwest, just as I have done many times over the months researching for a film project based upon the book 7 Doors In, written by Beth Rondeau. The book chronicles Beth's journey teaching behind prison walls of a maximum-security prison, and what she was able to accomplish among the offenders in the three years she was there. The project is in the script development stage, and I’m slated to direct the film under a production company to be announced later in the film via the trade magazines.
However, that was not the only project I had while in the midwest. I was asked to photograph Lucy Deacon, who has been named the Face of WOHA, Diversity Awareness Youth Leader. This organization was founded by Desziree Richardson in the UK, and has an international reach to several countries around the world. Below are some of the behind the scenes footage of the shoot, and some of the photos that will be featured.
