"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Cooking Portrait Collage

While in Bangkok last January, I had the opportunity to shoot a bunch of adorable little girls who were a part of a cooking class.

These girls are estranged from their homes, Mhong refugees living in Bangkok under the care of my friend, Dwight Turner. I have crazy amounts of respect for Dwight and the way he does charity. His no-nonsense-irreverence and relationally-focused “funlanthropy” is refreshing to me, and I’m proud to support his work financially and through little photo projects like this one.

You can give toward his project here.
