This photograph was taken in one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods of Hong Kong. In Sheung Wan, the narrow cobblestone streets are full of shops selling Chinese medicine, incense, and dried fish. Strangely, this place feels a world away from the skyscrapers and high-end retail stores down the road in Central. When I noticed this man reading in a darkened doorway, I was struck by his peaceful composure. Now as I look at this image, I wonder how he views the changing face of Hong Kong.

This photograph showcases the playful side of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and reflects the essence of Ipanema beach on a Sunday afternoon. For me, the beach marked a special place that brought people together. A place where men and women, young and old, black and white, gay and straight are accepted. Where acrobats, surfers, soccer players, and artists alike can gather and play.
