Last September, I met Sarah Brown, wife of former Prime Minister Gordon Brown in New York. She is the global patron of the White Ribbon Alliance. I had been developing the concept of a collaborative work of art built of skies from all over the world. I wanted this concept to have the most positive impact possible on an important cause. Listening to Sarah that day, I realized that I should devote my sky concept to the cause of improving maternal health in the world. The leading cause of death for women in developing countries is not AIDS, it’s not Cancer. It’s Childbirth. That’s shocking. And unacceptable.
So I wanted to do something about it. I told Sarah about my vision and she loved the concept. I still remember we were standing on a Manhattan rooftop and she took the first sky photo to be included in OneWorldSky. Here’s the photo of Sarah.
This January OneWorldSky was one of many artworks that I chose to include for my solo session at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The response was inspiring.
And a big thank you to all of you who have sent in beautiful skies and emails. The creativity shown has been extraordinary.
