The First Emperor

I was very honored to be called by the High Museum to cover events surrounding their exhibition with the Chinese Terracotta Soldiers. I was escorted into the exhibition privately before it was opened to the public. It had me in total awe.

I was asked to photograph President Carter walking through the exhibition. I have never meet a former president before, and it was very strange to give him direction for the photographs. I felt very special being there for his private showing of the exhibition.

The High put on a show for this exhibition. There were dancers, costumed soldiers, the Chinese Ambassador to the US, Chinese delegates, and lots and lots of excited museum goers. I want to give a big thanks to the High for having me be part of such an event. I will remember it forever!

The following image was taken by Vino Wong from the AJC. It is of me photographing President Jimmy Carter. Thank you Vino!
