Did this shot a few years back with Jamacian born, Buntricia Bastian, in Trinidad. One of my favorite looks of that weekend as there were many students to photograph that were learning makeup from Ms. Bastian.
Ms. Bastian is now in the last stages of her cancer and it breaks my heart. I didn't know as I thought she was in remission from the first announcement last year as we did speak.
I traveled a lot with her shooting and creating in the Caribbean Islands and the states. Though we stopped working together, I always felt the need to know she was ok and checked in on her...not often but enough to know she was still up and running especially on IG...social media tells the stories if you want to tell them. Today was a shock to hear this from a dear friend of mine about someone I shared a part of my life with for a few years, which in God's eye, is just a moment...enough said😔
