The Sleeping Giant


Henry Wallace, 50, has been carving wood for over 30 years. In that time he has lived in Nassau, befriended Bob Marley, had work displayed in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., and lived a storied personal life. His passion is his faith, Rastafarianism, and his art work. Here he kisses a woman carrying fruit, a piece that will go to one of his friends in Nassau.

The beautiful perspectives of people and images that you captured on camera is like a taperstry of life connected together and weaves my imagination into its process...

Does anyone know if this gem of a man is still living in poverty or if word spread to help him. It kills me to think of his child not having a birthday cake. If you send money, does the government take it? How would you get funds to someone?
