Face the World with a Smile (tm)
There are many problems in today's world but if individuals (and their leaders) would smile more perhaps some of those problems will disappear. This submission is a representation of my collection of close up colorful portraits of ethnic peoples from 6 continents in their local costume and environment and smiling at me - and now they are smiling at you. Perhaps this gallery this will counterbalance the typically dark depressed imagery common to editorial photography that covers what's bad in the world and might, perhaps, represent what's good in the world.
Recent ongoing personal projects include "Faces of the World" - capturing and editing candid portraits of ethnic people worldwide for a photo book, a world travel images and stories Blog at http://www.interfaceimages.com/blog, commercial projects of Vancouver and Buenos Aires travel imagery for John Wiley & Sons, editorial photography for ASTM International, Opulence Magazine and key note speaking and lecturing for Holland America Cruise Lines, camera clubs and various corporations. I am represented by Alamy, travel-images.com, Photographers Direct and others with my Interface Images collection of 8,000 high resolution images online at http://www.interfaceimages.com
