    An honour to photograph this incredible human. Scout Bassett was found abandoned on a street in Nanjing, China. She was 18 months old and was missing a leg and had burn scars all over her tiny body. The police took her to a state run orphanage where she was hardly fed and kept indoors. She spent the next 7 years there. At 7 years old she weighed 22 lbs, the size of a small toddler. One month before her 8th birthday she was adopted by an American couple. Now 31 she is the fastest American of her classification ever to run the 100 meters. Photographed for 2019 ESPN Body issue. Thank you @frankie626 @scoutbassett @erinsvalstad @espn_body_issue @espnmag

    You want to be inspired? Listen to this. Scout Bassett was found abandoned on street in Nanjing, China. She was 18 months old and was missing a leg and had burn scars all over her tiny body. The police took the abandoned baby to a state run orphanage where she was hardly fed and kept inside for the next 7 years. At 7 she weighed 22 lbs, the size of a small toddler. She endured incredible dark hardships. One month before her 8th birthday she was adopted by an American couple. Now 31 she is the fastest American of her classification ever to run the 100 meters. I was so honored to photograph Scout. This shooting will stand out as one of the most inspiring and memorable of my decades as a photographer. To understand what she has been through, and what she has overcome is truly remarkable. I wanted these images of her to do her justice. I knew what we were documenting was important. Although small in stature , her life force is huge. She is brave and full of courage and that was evident in every shot we did of her. Since I met you Scout you have inspired me so that i think of you and your bravery, courage, resilience and grace every single day. Special thanks to @espn @frankie626 @trephoto @erinsvalstad @melodybrynner #espnbody2019 #espn and of course the beautiful and incredibly remarkable @scoutbassett To read more about Scout read Tim Keown’s important words @espn #scoutbassett #espnbody2019 #espnmag #noretouching

    My heart aches to hear the loss of the incredible Isabel Toledo. Kind and so talented and full of grace. Thinking of Ruben and their deep love for one another. Both of you are so inspiring in so many way. Thank you @kimpaper @askmrmickey #isabeltoledo #angel ❤️

    Even though it’s summer and there is a lot of beauty in front of me I can’t stop thinking about all the darkness that seems to be seeping into everything. The precious Amazon that is on fire...icebergs melting... leaders of too many countries that have no compassion for people in crisis, not even mothers with children. And all of this affects all of the beloved innocent animals on the planet. In the Amazon, in the Arctic ...in our oceans. It’s hard not to have a heavy heart. It’s difficult to not be overwhelmed. I keep thinking that we have to go through this in order to get to the other side. For all of us to wake up. I am reminding myself and everyone else that cares to not feel defeated. We have power. If you have the privilege to vote, use it. If you can contribute your time or money to organizations that do good things ...do it. And on top of it all ...if nothing else, just be kind ...to a stranger, to a tourist , to a neighbor. Stop and help an animal that is suffering or in crisis. Your intentions will inspire others. We do have power. “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because those of us who do nothing.”-Albert Einstein “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and then suddenly you are doing the impossible.”-St. Francis of Assisi “One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.”-Jackie Kennedy 📸 @lufreitas Photographing little Sami for @humanesocietyny @serzinhodeluz Sami who lost her back legs when hit by a car in Brazil is being rehabilitated at the @humanesocietyny and in September will soon be fit for wheels and then will be ready for adoption. Good things do happen on this planet. #adoptdontshop #bekindtoanimals #spayandneuter
