I photographed Teresa, a local author, this summer for a piece in the South China Morning Post and became an instant fan. She sent me a pdf of her book Dear Scarlet before the shoot and I devoured it. It’s an honest take of her postpartum struggle in the form of a letter to her daughter. The book is written with vulnerability and a touch of humour accompanied by her illustrations that were simple yet poignant 🍎 So refreshing!
Teresa’s book Dear Scarlet has been reviewed by the NY Times, the National Post, Avenue Calgary and the Toronto Star to name a few. Below is a page, sent to me by one of the editors of the Post Magazine. I love how they juxtaposed Teresa’s illustrations with my photo.
