Neckties and Heels

Dario Chongolo allowed me the honour of helping out with photography on the night of the launch of his new book, Fighting to the Finish. I was embarassingly underdressed as his guests dressed to the nines for a night of fine dining and intelligent conversation at the Radisson Blu dome in Lusaka this past March.

I'll ask Dario if I can show you actual photos in a future post. The event was very formal and included a guest of honour from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services. To try to pull out some light moments, I asked Dario if I could take pictures of his guests neckties and shoes. He was gracious enough to indulge me.

Here are some of the shots. Hope you like them ... and don't forget to get yourself a copy of Fighting to the Finish.
