Astrid Stark Photography hits front page of Big Issue
I did a shoot with South African musician Lonesome Dave Ferguson. Check out his music www.myspace.com/lonesomedaveferguson. Dave belts out raw country grooves and plays dirty twangs through his harmonica that makes you want to slap your thighs and grind your hips in a filthy way.
The Big Issue supports street trade. All the magazines are sold by street vendors, many who were previously unemployed and disadvantaged. The vendors get half the selling price of the magazine. The Big Issue's big mission is to create employment. Self respect and independence follow. Check them ut www.bigissue.org.za
