For the second consecutive year I’ve photographed the Human Rights Watch: Cries From the Heart, star studded and heart warming performance artistically directed by Jonathan Feldman at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. This years incredible talent included Shohreh Aghdashloo, Annette Bening, Keith David, Greg Germann, Taraji P. Henson, Vincent Kartheiser, Anna Khaja, Julian Sands and Featured musical performances by A Fine Frenzy, Mia Doi Todd, and Terra Naomi.
As I carried my (heavy) sound blimp covered equipment, running from one side of the stage to the other from the foyer, up and down the stairs to the balcony, just so I can get every view from every side of each scene, all the while trying to listen to the heart felt stories, poetry and music, I chanted to myself ‘I love my job, I love my job’. And I do, it’s these events, honoring our human rights heros, that remind me that we all have a duty to protect our fellow citizens.
Please support Human Rights Watch in their incredible worldly movements in protecting the citizens of our international community. Whether it be purchasing tickets to or volunteering at their events, or a simple donation, it’ll make your day when you do, I promise.
