|Gideyon Kifle is the official photographer of the MLK Memorial in DC|
If you happened to have read this recent Washington Times Communities article about the official photographer for the Martin Luther King, Jr memorial and thought the name Gediyon Kifle sounded familiar, it may be because you might have also seen the award-winning photographer featured often on Bellyitch.
He is a one time PR client of mine and also my family photographer. He’s the one who captured the images below from a popular post from 2007. It was often accessed via Google back then when the idea of maternity portraits was still quite novel. These days they are as common as the color blue.
It’s so nice to see such a talented man getting recognized again. Kifle got accolades previously for photographing most of the colorful and vibrant images and photos in several of Bravo TV‘s Top Chef Masters Season 2 Winner renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson‘s books. Both men hail from Ethiopia.
