Iceland Succeeds at Reversing Teenage Substance Abuse - Media Picking Up

Dr. Harvey Milkman was in Iceland last year working again with Dr. Inga Dóra Sigfúsdóttir who is one of the co-authors of the Icelandic Model for teenage substance abuse prevention.

Dr. Milkman writes:

"Iceland may be the world’s most progressive country at reducing teenage substance abuse. In the more than 4 decades that I have studied, researched and written about substance misuse, I have not seen a more promising approach."

Read his article here on the Huffington Post.

There have been other recent instances of stories about the work done by Dr. Sigfúsdóttir and her colleagues in Mosaic Science by Emma Young which also appears in the Atlantic.

It would be excellent if work like this continues to get out into the main stream media and that it begins to influence how other countries handle treatment and prevention.

Gabrielle Motola makes eye contact. When she speaks, she speaks directly to you. And when she listens, she invests herself in what you are saying. If there were such thing as “ear contact,” I’m sure that Gaby is making it.

Falmouth University and Sunday Assembly

I spent two days at Falmouth University giving a talk and then spending time one on one with students. It has been tremendously rewarding to hear from students about their process and share some of mine. It makes me realise what a long way I've come since my days at the University of Miami and what a struggle creative pursuit is at times. I then went back  to London and gave a talk at the Sunday Assembly.

One sunny London morning in September 2008, I was having breakfast in a café across from my office in Shoreditch. The gang from the Financial Times office around the corner came in looking deflated and explained that Lehman Brothers had just crashed and that a lot more people would lose their jobs. It was a grim day for the world, and soon recession was spreading across the globe.

I didn’t decide to write a book until well into the second year of a project that took three to complete. It grew out of a need to stop repeating conversations with not only the people I was photographing, but with everyone I came into contact with in my daily life. I wanted to put what I was experiencing into a physical format that could be shared. In a sense the book wrote itself before I even sat down at my desk, although the process of pulling it out of the alphabet soup of my mind still proved challenging.

An Equal Difference was shot exclusively on micro 4/3rds cameras. One of the main things I love about small cameras is they get out of your way leaving more space for you and your subject. It is important to have the tools you feel are right for you to operate seamlessly. Because at the end of the day, portraiture is not about cameras. It is about connection.
