Will be shooting the lovely couple in Boston sometime this summer and was extremely happy to have traveled there for their awesome traditional Ghanian Engagement session. The colorful attire and detailed beadings are truly rich of the Culture and looked flawless with her amazing complexion. Adwoa even showed me a little Azonto dance. I can’t wait to photograph the wedding. Here are some from the session.
Gabriel García Márquez, the Colombian novelist whose “One Hundred Years of Solitude” established him as a giant of 20th-century literature, died on Thursday at his home in Mexico City. He was 87.
His death was confirmed by Cristóbal Pera, his former editor at Random House.
Mr. García Márquez, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, wrote fiction rooted in a mythical Latin American landscape of his own creation, but his appeal was universal. His books were translated into dozens of languages. He was among a select roster of canonical writers — Dickens, Tolstoy and Hemingway among them — who were embraced both by critics and by a mass audience.
“Each new work of his is received by expectant critics and readers as an event of world importance,” the Swedish Academy of Letters said in awarding him the Nobel.
