International Women’s Day — Kimberly, a work in progress

On international woman’s day I offer up a few photographs and a video of my dear friend Kim, a courageous woman I met in London in 1990 when she was a teenager living on the street fleeing sexual abuse. Kim’s been a huge part of my life ever since. She moved to New York in the early 1990’s and I’ve photographed her on and off but never published any images. I’m concerned I won’t have much time left with her, so I’ve started to organize the work — my photos and videos and her materials – drawings, poems, writings, her early family photographs, hospital reports, etc. She’s worthy of at least a book or a film.
