Inspiring Change and an End to Child Marriage with @stephsinclairpix

“She looked at me with tears in her eyes and spoke quietly, ‘In my whole life, I have never felt love.’ I continued to hear similar stories as I traveled, researching and photographing child marriage in countries like Nepal, Ethiopia, India and Yemen, Tanzania, South Sudan and even Europe and the US,” says photographer Stephanie Sinclair (@stephsinclairpix), who has spent more than a decade documenting the abuse of women and girls around the world.

Stephanie’s long-term photography project, Too Young To Wed (@tooyoungtowed), joins the UK’s Department for International Development and UNICEF at the first Girl Summit in London.

"I wanted to make sure that we got these images and stories in front of diplomats and policy makers who could enforce laws and support programs to provide more protection for these girls," she says. "I was sure if the rest of the world understood their lives as I had come to, real change wouldn’t be far behind."

I discovered it when my little girl was a toddler and mad for all things ballet related. She still loves this piece, and I thought I would share it with you.Ballerina on the Boat

We all score front-row seats to watch him work! Yep, he made a bunch of time-lapse videos that start with a blank sketchbook page, and finish with… well, see for yourself.

Breaking in my boots before Sundays trip to London Film and Comicon.  Haven’t worn these outside yet (and why I am wearing around the house). Starting to get excited about the event.

England is the birthplace of the cultivated garden, from the Tudor period to today, and the great horticulturists of this nation include William…
