Detroit, MI based Portrait and Food Photographer
Packing for the great adventure! ! I’m very excited to finally share with you all a recent book collaboration between Marvin Shaouni Photography and Joseph Wesley Black Tea that will take us to some of the most famous tea growing regions and villages in China for this year’s harvest. Our trip begins in Shanghai tomorrow and take us all the way to Central China to Urumqi, Xinjiang, home to the Turkic minority group the Uyghurs, where tea culture is older than the written word.
Please follow us along on our journey via our blogs:
I’m amazed by the amount of positive impact this ambitious young lady has made in her community. Veronika Scott has recently been named by CNN one of the country’s most visionary women and winner of Diane Von Furstenberg’s DVF People’s Voice Award!
Veronika is the founder of the empowerment plan, a company that develops heavy-duty, lightweight coats that turn into a sleeping bag. The Empowerment Plan now employs 20 people, manufacturing 550 coats every month, which are distributed for free to homeless people in Detroit and through outreach programs across the country.
My portrait here of Veronkia was taken during her humble beginnings. What a ride it’s been for you… Congratulations, Veronika!
