Hush, Mother says. Madeleine is sleeping. She is so beautiful when she sleeps, I do not want to wake her. The small sisters and brothers creep about the bed, their gestures of silence becoming magnified and languorous, fingers floating to pursed lips, tiptoes rising descending as if weightless. Circling about her bed, their frantic activity slows; they are like tiny insects suspended in sap, kicking dreamily before they crystallize into amber. Together they inhale softly and the room fills with one endless exhalation of breath: Shhhhhhh.

Richard of Fourth Estate interviewed me for their Blog. Click here. Fourth Estate features works from talented photographers around the world that needed the exposure they so deserve. I am truly honored to be a part of this and I'm sorry if my answers sound ridiculous.
Thank you so much Richard.
The first photo was taken during one of our old shoot and afternoon road trip with my good friend Marga and her friends. The second was also from an old shoot with my little sister, Alyanna at our backyard, one sunny afternoon in November of 2009.
