Temple Within

Three Parasols  |  Burma It is possible, but never optimum, to reflect on a country as entirely a political state. When we do, we forget every country is individual, with amazing culture, geography, history—and thousands of people for whom what might be occurring politically is not representative of their lives or beliefs. This is [...]

Resonant Becoming

Becoming | Bhutan As a humanitarian photographer and as a human standing before another person, I responded to this young girl’s energy. Standing in the Changankha Temple in Bhutan that is purposed to bless children and the names they are given, my heart resonated in response to her tender visage and tremendous curiosity. What [...]

Raise the Roof | Ladakh I met this woman in Ladakh, a region in the Himalayas in northwestern India. She is metaphorically perched atop the world, standing at elevations reaching 15,000 feet. She and her friends in the village caused me to think about standing on Earth’s “rooftop” and lifting our faces—and voices pealing with [...]

Seeing Together

City of Gold | Vietnam I return to this image often because every time I do, my mood is different. Or my circumstances have changed. My eye is somehow re-activated by the passage of time and stimulated in response to life’s endless, unpredictable pivots. Returning and thinking there will be nothing new to see, [...]

Side By Side

Side by Side | Ethiopia When I think of the phrase “side-by-side,” I can think of it as the easy friendship and movement of these two young girls in Ethiopia, or more ambitiously, as peace advocacy. What those two applications have in common are that each of us has a gift or gifts and [...]

Know this Man

Carriers | Nepal Gaze deep and long and recognize this man who is central in the photograph as your brother, father, son, uncle, lover, spouse, neighbor. Know him as part of your family or member of your community. The work he and others perform at this brick kiln factory in Nepal is similar to building [...]

Luminous Lives

Ring of Fire  |  Bagan Two young monks in the Shinbinthalyaung temple in Bagan appear tiny in contrast to the scale of the feet of a colossal, 60-meter long recumbent Buddha figure. Illuminated by candlelight and natural light from an open doorway, they are engaged in a spiritual practice that dates back and beyond the [...]

Come to the Door: Arches | Meknes

Arches | Meknes The duality of Islamic architecture—mosques and other buildings fronted by plain facades behind which are intricate, richly colored, textured, decorative, and superbly designed sacred and secret spaces—spurs me to consider the external and inner sides of life. I travel extensively and in those locations farthest from my home, either geographically or [...]

Compelling Color

Triumph  |  India I was visiting Bal Ashram in India, founded by Kailash Satyarthi, a children's rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. His compassionate work has led to the rescue of more than 80,000 children and delivered a compelling message on love and compassion. Bal Ashram is a residential school for children rescued from child labor, [...]

An Incan Marvel

Inca Stones |  Cusco A person might naturally conclude upon seeing this astonishing image of the mighty Sacsayhuaman that access to marvels such as this provide the most rewarding aspects of my work as a fine art photographer. Sacsayhuaman is a complex built centuries ago by the people of the Inca Empire and located near Cusco, Peru. [...]
