- Holiday Sale! - Last Day - This photograph, also from Gates of the Arctic National Park, Alaska, is available as a signed 6x9” archival print through today. Order link in profile. I shared a charter flight with some hunters while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, documenting several legs of a 6-month trek, ski and packraft journey around Alaska. We passed through this section, the Arrigetch Peaks of the Brooks Range, in August fall color before I returned to photograph sections of the route.
- Holiday Sale! - This aerial image over Gates of the Arctic National Park is available as a signed 6x9” archival print through December 7th. Order link in profile. I shared a charter flight with some hunters while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, documenting several legs of a 6-month trek, ski and packraft journey around Alaska. This particular section, through the Brooks Range in August fall color, was for me the most beautiful and grandiose.
Holiday Sale! This image from the Democratic Republic of the Congo is available on my website as a signed 6x9” archival print through December 7th. Order link in profile. I spent the night just a few steps from this scene, where lava glow from the world's largest lava lake mixes with moonlit clouds above the caldera of Mount Nyiragongo, an active stratovolcano. Located inside Virunga National Park, Nyiragongo and nearby Nyamuragira are together responsible for 40% of Africa’s historical volcanic eruptions. Since 1882, Nyiragongo has erupted at least 34 times.
- Holiday Sale - This aerial image from Province Orientale, Democratic Republic of the Congo, made near the borders of CAR, South Sudan and Uganda, is available as a signed 6x9” archival print until December 7th. Visit link in profile to order. The photograph was made while aboard an unmarked U.S. military plane, on assignment for The New York Times Magazine, documenting the persons and landscapes involved in Operation Observant Compass. At the time, the U.S. Special Operation Forces led a 4-nation partnership which included South Sudan, Uganda, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in combatting the LRA. The U.S. supplied training, airlift, logistics, communications, intelligence support, and other funding over an area of operations the size of California. Though the leader of the LRA, Joseph Kony, was not captured, the $780 million operation largely came to an end in 2017 as “the operation has essentially taken that group off the battlefield,” said General Thomas Waldhauser, head of the U.S. Africa Command. The LRA killed and estimated more than 100,000 people and kidnapped 60,000 children in a three-decade-long rebellion spanning northern Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo.
- Holiday Sale - This image of the Northern Lights, taken at a hunting outfitters ranch in British Columbia, Canada, is available now as a signed 6x9” archival print through December 7th. Visit link in profile to order. The photograph was made while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, documenting a month-long horse trip through the Muskwa-Kechika, a 25,000 square mile mixed-use preserve stretching southeastward from the Yukon-B.C. Canadian border and enfolding Canada’s northern Rockies. Encompassing mountains, meadows, rivers and forests, this sprawling wilderness is the largest unbroken wildlife habitat in the Rocky Mountain chain. Six times the size of Yellowstone, and only slightly smaller than the State of Maine, the M-K contains fifty pristine watersheds and the greatest combined abundance and diversity of large wild mammals in North America.
- Holiday Sale - This image from Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania, is available now as a signed 6x9” archival print through December 7th. Visit link in profile to order. The photograph was made while on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, documenting the current state of fishing as related to climate on Lake Tanganyika. In this scene, Tanzanian men young and old net fish for silver cyprinid, a small freshwater fish known locally as Dagaa, near the village of Kazinga. Once the Dagaa is spotted near the surface, the fishing begins. When a boy from Kazinga turns age 4 or 5 he may begin riding along in the boat, helping to scare fish into the net as well as learning from the older men. Kazinga is like many other villages along the lake in that its population relies almost completely on the fish for sustenance.

Sensitive Content : Image 4, 6. a few years back i shared on instagram some images from my 2016 book ‘libyan sugar.’ have shared more in recent weeks and this is the last of the libya posts. 8 years ago last month muammar gaddafi was killed, and shortly after the first libyan civil war officially came to an end. though fighting continues today. some years the memories of that year and the cumulative 7 months i spent in country are more present than others, but after receiving a message regarding the war from my mother (see several insta posts back) last month, libya was brought into renewed focus. what may be interesting to some of you is that all the nearly 300 images in the book, besides one, were taken with an iphone. but at that time, the iphone did not have an instantaneous ‘shutter’ so i used iphone apps that did, like hipstamatic. but with hipstamatic i could take just one image every 15 seconds, and often the app would crash, especially in the desert heat, and id lose all the images that were processing in cache. but among other reasons i wanted to use the same tool, the mobile phone, that was being used to begin, sustain and further these ‘arab spring’ uprisings and revolutions. 1: SIRTE.

Sensitive Content : images 5, 6. continuation from previous posts: just over 8 years ago last month muammar gaddafi was killed, and shortly after the first libyan civil war officially came to an end. though fighting continues today. some years the memories of that year and the cumulative 7 months i spent in country are more present than others, but after receiving a message from my mother the other week, libya was brought into renewed focus. a few years back i shared on instagram some images from my 2016 book ‘libyan sugar’ and will share more in these next posts. the images are sequenced differently in the book, and are accompanied by texts. what may be interesting to some of you is that all the nearly 300 images in the book, besides one, were taken with an iphone. but at that time, the iphone did not have an instantaneous ‘shutter’ so i used iphone apps that did, like hipstamatic. but with hipstamatic i could take just one image every 15 seconds, and often the app would crash, especially in the desert heat, and id lose all the images that were processing in cache. but among other reasons i wanted to use the same tool, the mobile phone, that was being used to begin, sustain and further these ‘arab spring’ uprisings and revolutions. 1 - TRIPOLI.
