I usually reblog and seldom write personal posts, I save it for my personal blog.
I like talking to people here.

A COLLECTION OF WORKS BY MARK DEMSTEADER
The collaboration came about when Emma contacted Mark about buying some of his work as a present to herself for her 21st birthday.
Mark said of the “EMMA” collection:
“It has been a wonderful privilege to work with Emma on these images. The idea behind them is to make a collection to celebrate Emma’s birthday. I wanted to capture a moment in time, and by making each piece a quick snapshot, I hope to capture Emma as she reaches 21. In some way I hope these works celebrate Emma in what she has achieved already, and in all the many possibilities to come.”
Mark has kindly agreed that 10% of all sale proceeds and one of the pieces will be donated to Emma’s charity of choice, CAMFED International, a charity which supports the education of girls and economic empowerment of young women in Africa.
