Charlotte Rush-Bailey has been on virtually all my recent photo expeditions-workshops (except for the one in Vietnam), and has completed her multimedia project of Gharib Nawaz's Urs festival during my Sufi Saints of Rajasthan & Kashmir Photo Expedition-Workshop.
Charlotte is a photographer who migrated to the world of photography from a corporate career that covered three decades of marketing and communications positions in a variety of global industries including energy, financial services, media, conservation, technology and professional services. This gave her opportunities to work with people all over the world, and to learn to appreciate cultural nuances and the influences of socio-political forces.
She's the third participant to send me her multimedia work of Gharib Nawaz's Urs festival, which captures the intensity of the event. Prayers To A Pir was made using Adobe Premiere Pro instead of Soundslides which I favor, but Charlotte found it to be easier to sequence and sync the audio with the stills.
