Leslie Kee, who was filming and visiting in Ishinomaki City and Onagawa Town, Miyagi Prefecture during the earthquake, was rendered shocked and wordless by the disaster. As a photographer who started his career here, he wanted to bring “LOVE & HOPE” to Japan, his beloved 2nd home, by putting together 200 portraits of female celebrities from 32 different countries, taken during his 7-year stay in NY, into a charity photobook. Limited to 2500 copies, these will be released for sale on 1 June 2011. The entire price of 5,250yen will go directly to Japan Red Cross, for the affected regions.
