Early in january I spent a wonderful afternoon at the Hana office with Brigitta, Anita Bollane,Greta Fedkina and Irina Cukura. These ladies are rightly proud of their national identity and roots and wanted to show off their national costumes. The light was fading fast so I had to work quickly to get thier portraits. We laughed a lot making the images and had a mini fashion shoot in the street outside the HANA buildings.
