About the Book
Where it was always my goal to produce pictures “without” the presence of man, I look back on my photographic career and ask my self, “why?” Why have I travelled to all these amazing places and not been interested in photographing the people that live in them?
Finally, in early 2011 the lights came on and I was introduced to “people” photography by several women whose work I have always admired. From that moment on, I was hooked. My focus has shifted 180 degrees—I still travel for more than six months of the year and I am now diving headlong into different cultures—Africa, Burma, Cuba, Ethiopia, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Vietnam to name a few. I cannot believe I was so blind!
As I move from one photo tour to the next, my thirst for travel and discovery becomes even greater, and as I explore this new direction that I have taken, the desire to tell a story has become stronger.
The following images are the result of my journey during the past 4 years.
