I frequently travel to New York to visit friends and my meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy I have often thought how multi cultural New York is,it seems to be a microcosm of the world, with all religions and nations represented. It seems quite apt that the United Nations is in New York.

This is a very inspiring project; giving a visual documentation to the multi cultural nature of New York. By photographing children, the project also seems to embody hope for the future.

Video of Aurora (Northern Lights)



The Northern Lights The Northern Lights, or ‘Aurora Borealis’, are a natural light show that can be seen at the North Pole. They also occurs at the South Pole, where they are called the ‘Southern Lights’ or ‘Aurora Australis’. They are a spectacular display of different shades and colours of light rapidly moving in the night sky.

Northern Lights


The lights occur when particles from the sun interact with the Earth’s atmosphere. These particles are what’s know as ‘solar wind’, and are quickly moving charged particles that are emitted from the Sun. The solar wind is very closely linked to the 11 year solar sunspot cycle and to solar flares. Most of the world is protected from these particles by the magnetic field of the earth, except the Poles. Here the solar wind can interact with the Earth’s atmosphere.
