Photographed in Brooklyn, New York, by Chester Higgins. Recognizing the African Native-American Cultural Root Workers in us and among us. Beautiful Job, I love this cultural vision work.
This past Saturday afternoon, I stopped at Settipani Bakery on the corner of 120th St. and Lenox Ave. in Harlem for a quick light pick-me-up snack, and I ran into International Photographer Chester Higgins and his wife, sitting at a table, talking to Settipani co-owner Leah Abraham.
Chester has been documenting some very interesting angles of the African Cultural Experience during his professional life, he gave me a very beautiful postcard of one of his monumental photographic works, The Bet St. Giyorgis (Church of St. George), Lalibela, Ethiopia. The most famous of 12 churches at Lalibela, a sacred destination for centuries of pilgrims.
You will have to visit Chester's website to get more images, and view details of his many projects. You will also view by-gone traces of our history that his searching eye has artistically captured.
We had a very short, but interesting conversation, he asked me stimulating questions about my present project, that helped bring up vital question that i needed to gave the development of the project more focus.
We exchanged contact info and parted.
