Urgent Gratitude

Countenance of the Earth | Navajo Nation There is a sense of urgent gratitude in the air this holiday season. Especially in these moments with wars and children in multiple countries exposed to unprecedented danger and trauma. The children in Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Gaza, and other places in which conflict roars like a terrifying beast [...]

On Course

On Course | Myanmar This image of a young monk launched on his skiff, his bowl for receiving alms reflecting sunlight softened by clouds, expresses to me the vastness and durability of hope. We view him from behind and I invite one and all to join in his forward-looking gaze. During these times especially, [...]

Limbed Ghost

Temple Embrace | BurmaWhen I look at fog, I see it as a shroud that creates mysterious spaces. It can roll over a mountain or, as we see it here, appear to be a veil cast across a forest. Fog is often changing and alive and moving. At moments when it is most dense, it [...]

Celebrating Our Ancestors

Día de los Muertos | Mexico This image made in Oaxaca celebrates Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) as a meaningful, colorful connection to our ancestors. On this day, the loss of a loved one is dark and painful but also brilliantly enlightened, heralded, and extended into immortality by memory. People who [...]

Moving Hearts

Temple Embrace | Burma I am often asked and have written about the difference between fine art and commercial photography. There is a complete essay on my website in the Artist section that addresses the question, “What Is Fine Art Photography?” which can be read HERE. As I consider this image of a young monk [...]

Human Sunflowers

Los Ninos | Peru To look into the faces of these children who are members of the Quechua ethnic group and Andean people is to see flowers animated. In the blaze of the puppy-holder’s smile, in the lighthearted grin of the girl embracing her goat, in the disposition of all of them as an [...]

Illumination’s Glow

Begging Bowl | Thailand The reflection of light emanating from the bowl that graces this young boy I find captivatingly sweet. Joy is so easily recognized on his face, despite his lowered chin that means he doesn’t directly gaze into my camera’s lens. I recall wanting to remain in that moment forever, or at [...]

Unafraid of the Enormous

Solitude | Kenya To open a new chapter in one’s life requires nothing less than being unafraid of the enormous. This thought burst into my consciousness as I contemplated times when my situation had caused me to take on a new challenge. Perhaps it is the guardianship of my people, my nuclear family. Or, at [...]

Temple Run | Burma The Simpyram Pagoda was built based on principles of astrology and is the center of the world, according to local legend and stories told long ago and even today. Its enormous circular structure is created by seven semi-circular platforms designed with consecutive, flowing, wave-like arches above which are multiple sharp, [...]

Preserving Trust

4000 Miles | China It took over 2,000 years and countless human lives sacrificed to construct The Great Wall of China that winds across the country’s deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus. Unfathomably stretching approximately 6,700 kilometers (4,163 miles) from east to west, the ancient, serpentine structure is like a dragon or snake that slumbers undisturbed [...]
