The American Hospital of Paris Foundation 2016 Award Gala.

Last night was The American Hospital of Paris Foundation 2016 Award Gala held at the Plaza Hotel in NY. It was my first time covering the event which was cocktail attire and in the Terrace Room.
The Award was given to the very elegant Donna Chapman who due to a recent little accident was sporting the most glamorous silk covered crutches that complimented her black silk Channel Purse. We hid her crutches for most of the photos but the were certainly camera ready.
She gave such a warm heart felt acceptance speech.
The Hospital was created in 1906 and provides American expatriates residing in France American trained medical care in English.

LDF Fall GALA 2016 at Cipriani 42nd Street

Last night I was honored to be the photographer for LDF Fall GALA 2016 at Cipriani 42nd Street.

What an amazing event and what a room full of incredible people who have dedicated their lives to fighting racial injustices through litigation, advocacy, and public education.

Whether it is campaigning  to  stop police brutality or to end the death penalty or fighting for equality, equal pay, equal education last night I found myself surrounded by likeminded people who put thoughts and words into action using the legal system and hard work to make the United States of America just that, a country of uniting states where race and color should not determine our every day rights. I was so proud to be present. 
In this time of uncertainty where everyone is being drawn apart by fear and lack of compassion, as so many Americans of all different backgrounds do not have access to satisfying jobs and are unable to take care of them selves financially, to a system where the struggles at the bottom are becoming so great that people will grasp on to anything that promises them a glimpse of hope regardless of how unrealistic those promises are, to the race issue and how scared people can turn fear into hate, LDF is a beacon of hope and an agent of change as they address and fight the issues of racial injustice.
