I recently completed a project for UNFPA documenting the work of the organization in Guatemala in February. The head of the program liked my work so much that she recommended me to her colleagues at their headquarters in New York. As a result, I was fortunate to have one of the images that I took in Guatemala appear on the cover of their new Annual Report.
Several months ago, I was contacted by Alvaro Serrano who is a senior member of UNFPA. He told me about the new blog they are producing titled: Conversations for A Better World. He then asked me to become a contributor and help gather and produce material for the new blog site.
Alvaro was seeking my contribution to the current content topic that the blog was focusing on—women and the financial crises. As a result of being familiar with my work and the images I produce, UNFPA thought it very timely and appropriate for me to post a description of my recent book, Capital of Hope.
