The world: and a real life tale of good and evil

The world:  and a real life tale of good and evil

In the wake of sadness in Instanbul, Dhaka and Baghdad a little tribute to our world.  The world that is still inspiring, still fascinating, still hopeful.  Beauty is everywhere, the beams of light still shine brightly.....

Everywhere: and a tale of photography and before they pass away

Before they pass away on the My Marrakesh blog

Oh...the thought of plants and animals going extinct....living in endangered areas, their numbers dwindling, the poachers encroaching. .....

ย 

But oh!  The thought of peoples and cultures vanishing....their traditions fading, their populations diminishing, their lifestyles unsupported....until one day, they are no more.

Jimmy Nelson is chasing after vanishing tribes, trying to capture their images on film with his large plate field camera. ...

It may soon be too late for us to see them ourselves.....

But at least we can know their beauty in the pages of his book, Before They Pass Away....

If you are in New York, see Jimmy Nelson's important work at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, starting today until April 18.

Marrakech Morocco: and a tale of unplugging & connecting -- Christine Johnson family photography

They were seated at the table next door in the restaurant.  Parents and two children, their heads stooped over, their faces bathed in that unmistakable glow. The daughter flicked through the photos at the speed of light, one after another, one after another.  The father typed furiously with his two thumbs, his mouth curled in a scowl.  The littlest boy cried Nooooo.....and then Yesssss... as he shot laser after laser.  The mother liked and then liked again -- she liked everyone, it seemed.
