Well I was back in the studio again tonight, shooting photos for an Afro-soul-funk-reggae singer. She had a very interesting story. She was born in Africa. Her father was a freedom fighter for the ANC, battling apartheid in South Africa. Her family was persecuted by the ruling white majority, and terrorized by the police in that country. Later, they lived in a refugee camp. When apartheid was eventually overthrown, her father was granted a diplomatic post by the South African government, and the family was safe again.

Anyway, we shot her promo photos first.

Afterwards I painted the map of Africa on her back with red makeup, and we shot that to represent bloodshed for the continent.
