It is a true pleasure to have author and photojournalist Kendall Hunter as my guest blogger today. She’s fresh off a trip to Thailand and Myanmar with her two daughters, but it wasn’t just any kind of trip. No, these three women are out putting their special mark on the world, as you’ll read below (and here on Kendall’s blog).
It’s been my good fortune to have Kendall as a friend for eighteen years. We met in South Africa and experienced that country’s transition to democracy together (out of which came her book Black Taxi). Our friendship continued when we lived in Vancouver; later, we rendezvoused in Frankfurt and Zurich. Over the years, no matter the place, one thing has remained strong and true, and that is Kendall’s desire to authentically and honestly tell people’s stories, with care, intention and integrity. And she’s one hell of a fantastic role model to her children, to boot. I hope that you’ll get to know Kendall a little bit here, then stay in touch on Twitter and Facebook to join her on her future journeys.
