Click to preview Yemen - Antiquity at the Crossroads photo book

Most stories about Yemen reach back many centuries. My story of Yemen reaches back to late 2009 when my friend Joshua suggested I visit him in Yemen to photograph. He had lived in the Old City of the capital, Sana’a, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for over three years.

I love a good adventure, but that usually involves the Great American West, not a place with tribal kidnappings and Al Qaeda training camps. What finally turned the tide was reading the first chapters of the book Joshua was writing about his experiences as a young American in Yemen, and realizing that this was a place and culture unlike anywhere I had imagined, and the opportunity of a lifetime. Risk was overwhelmed by curiosity, and the chance to photograph, guided by an insider’s knowledge of an unknown place on the other side of the world.
