My dad was an artist when I was little. I started to play tennis and we needed more money to pay for my lessons and travels. So my dad quit what he loved doing to make more money for the family. He used to draw these little people and make oil and watercolor paintings. He had exhibitions in London and Berlin before he gave it all up for me. Now it's my turn to revive his passion and collaborate on the new pin series we decided to call Asilda World. The series will feature little people of various professions, similar to the work of Irving Penn who photographed people of various professions in Paris, New York, and London.
This is the first pin in the series and features a vintage photographer/reporter from the 1920s. He's the one capturing key street moments for the newspapers somewhere in Chicago or Los Angeles. This pin celebrates the profession of photojournalist and the difficult craft to be in the right place at the right time, often in challenging environments.
