International Women’s day

To celebrate International Women’s Day, here’s a picture of a strong and powerful woman, Olga is a weaver from Teotitlan in Oaxaca, Mexico. The photo is from a story I just finished shooting about this region, that has been famous for it’s artisans for centuries, and these crafts and culture are still continuing today.

Helping them along is a small organisation called En Via, who provide interest free micro finance for women to set up or develop their businesses, as well as financial education and support groups. They also provide community tourism, where 100% of the money from the tours go directly into financing the loans. http://www.envia.org/

New website now online

The last couple of months I’ve been beavering away in the background, going through all my work from the last few years editing, sequencing, adding, culling and eventually finalizing my new website, which includes an integrated blog, where you are probably reading this post. Thanks to Jonathan Pryor aka ivyowl for the design.

The new site is especially a showcase for my documentary work looking at underground and off beat cultural stories. Hope you like it: www.philclarkehill.co.uk
