BABY TEETH

We spotted a pride of lions sleeping on top of the kopjes in the Serengeti, and as we got closer to the rocks, we saw that there were quite a few cubs in that pride. The best moment was when 3 of the young cubs started chasing, playing and biting their mom’s tail as if they were kittens that were playing with yarn. I can’t remember when was the last time that I laughed so hard as I did watching these guys.

THE ALWAYS WATCHING EYE OF A BLACK SWAN

The always watching eye of a black swan. I toke this shot as I noticed the sleeping black swan and he noticed me and open his deep ruby red eye. It was a magic moment because the contrast of the black feathers and the red eye catched me from the first time.

UNSEEN (SELF PORTRAIT)

It isn’t always obvious – your identity as a mother. It’s clouded by expectations, demands and sleep deprivation. For the most part, you live out your day and your duties behind doors with only children looking on who don’t fully understand the sacrifices you make. Seven pm rolls around and you breathe a big breath as your children go to sleep, you pour a glass of wine and your identity changes again. Always a mother, but sometimes more than others.

WINTER IN PINGYAO

This picture was taken during the winter in the ancient city of Pingyao, province of Shaanxi, China. In this season, the skyline of Pingyao changes completely. The use of charcoal to heat up the houses makes the sky deeply smoggy. At the streets, the only color one can distinguish is the red from the national flags and lanterns of Chinese New Year. The dust and soot modify the life of the residents, who strive daily to cope with the cold and the air pollution.
