Meet Hannah. She is from California and full of humor and powerful laughs. I am in constant laughter whenever I am with her. She made this city pop even more with her beauty.

“The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.” -Baudelaire

Broken: A Call to Restore the House of Humanity

In 2012 my team and I from PhotogenX released the book, Broken: a call to restore the house of Humanity that uses the art of photography and writing to breathe life and dignity back into desperate situations across the world. From life in red light districts to war-torn nations, this book redefines how we as global citizens view “family” and “home,” and more importantly, how to bring forth restoration. Masterfully captured, Broken is a combination of stunning photography, prose, on the field stories, and concrete application that is designed to engage both the mind and the heart.

All proceeds from Broken go towards supporting the Kunene family of Swaziland. Featured in the book for their unparalleled faith and generosity, parents Petros and Elizabeth welcomed seven AIDS orphans (in addition to their eight biological kids) into their home and into their hearts. The support from Broken helps them cover living costs and allows the children to attend school.
