A little while ago, while it was still hot outside... I was hired to film a "back stage movie" during a photo shoot for Revolution Magazine and Swiss watchmaker Maurice Lacroix. It was a fun experience and the model was James Magnussen, the Australian World Champion Swimmer.

Last night, the "Bambi foundation" organised a flash mob in Geneva- 50 students from the International School participated- lots of fun in a otherwise freezing cold November Evening in the centre of downtown Geneva!

So Paris Photo is as big as ever... Lots of exhibitors and publishers, under one roof- Le Grand Palais. It is a beautiful venue that totally justifies hosting the worlds largest Photo Expo.

A little while ago, I visited Mali. The job was to document the works done on the zoo within the Bamako city park (Aga Khan Development Network). It was really a very interesting project as the city park in Bamako is not like all other parks...and the zoo was one of a kind as well. It probably is the nicest zoo in Africa. This lonely elephant most likely had her parents snatched and she was left at the park. The people leaving her said that the mother had just left her...something which is totally unlikely. She now receives the best possible care at the zoo. Anyway- The most memorable moment was when I was given a real "elephant hug"!

Over the last two years I have been working closely with Hasan Hasanovic while developing my project on Srebrenica. Hasan is himself a survivor of the genocide of July 1995. His story can be read on the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website. The photo is an image I took of him the first time I met him.
