Documenting parties is one of my favorite branches of my business, and working for a good cause makes it all the sweeter. This spring I photographed a fundraising gala for the Minnesota Literacy Council's Beyond Words Bash, and it was an unforgettable evening thanks to the star of the night: Angélique Kidjo, internationally known recording artist and human rights activist. She was just as amazing in person as I thought she might be: funny and warm, her presentation brought the entire room to tears.
Minnesota Monthly magazine ran a story with some of my photos. Here's the link.
