Tajikistan-222-2

Tajikistan

In late 2013, I went to the former Soviet republic of Tajikistan, to the far eastern autonomous mountainous province of Gorno-Badakhshan. These are some of the sights and people I saw.

Peru-1265

Peru

Iquitos Peru is the largest city in the world that is inaccessible by road. I went there to interview adolescents on their thoughts on growing up in the jungle. To participate in this project, please visit the 'Postcards From Youth' page in the menu.

Sudan_2-268

Sudan

Sudan was a single state intersected by 500+ ethnic lines. Now divided into two countries, the difficulties are still very much felt, with resource management at the core.

Kyrgyzstan

The former Soviet and Central Asian republic of Kyrgyzstan borders the economic giant China, the powerhouse Kazakhstan, the militant Uzbekistan, and the narco-state of Tajikistan. Their hospitality is legendary, just like their tendency to have political revolutions every five years.

People

People are the most interesting subjects for me, most notably in their interactions with each other, nature and the manufactured environment they design.

Nature

The natural world also inspires me. From the minute details of a flower to the grandeur of mountains, I marvel at the beauty and power around us.

Notre Dame de Paris

Architecture

From Galesburg Illinois to Moscow Russia, architectural design that is in harmony with nature or strikes out on its own path is a favorite subject when I am out exploring through the viewfinder.

Studio

The simplicity of a still object under controlled lighting and other conditions makes for a challenge. I have learned from experience that it isn't as easy as it looks to make such things look great.
