Photography In Person

KimGooi Photojournalist

This photo of me was taken from a TV screen from the CNN documentary about environmental/green issue (People Count, Forging Ahead) hosted by Jane Fonda in 1998 I think. It was produced by Babara Pye.

I worked on this episode in Thailand about a carpet factory that recycles everything.

I was supposed to be the researcher and interpreter but they put me on the show too and interviewed me as a freelance journalist about environmental issues in Thailand.

When the credit rolled, I was thrilled to see my mug shot appeared. I froze the frame and took the photograph.

It would had been perfect if my name appeared too; unfortunately my name appeared in a different frame.
