Dr. Thanh for Forbes Magazine
Last year I photographed the owner of the Vietnamese beverage empire, Tran Qui Thanh for Forbes Magazine. His company consistently outsells the likes of Coca-Cola, Pepsi and all the rest of the Western drinks that have migrated into the country.
The company’s main drink, Dr. Thanh, is a series of herbal teas. I don’t drink them, but I often find myself singing the catchy commercial. So I invite you to watch and let it infect your mind and soul!
A detail of prints installed on behalf of @harmreductioncoalition at the 58th Commission on Narcotic Drugs in #Vienna, #Austria. The work draws from 400 portraits paired with text written by each subject advocating for a more human drug policy that includes harm reduction among its tenets. #HarmReduction, as a practice, is a relatively simple and pragmatic approach to drugs which focuses on the issue through the lens of public health rather than through the criminal justice system (which, globally, can carry sentences up to and including life in prison and death.) Its adoption into formalized policy has been a steady and incremental journey that has spanned roughly three decades.
