Greetings from chilly Rhode Island! Spring cannot come soon enough.
Thankfully, I will be away part of the winter teaching and photographing
in warmer places.
I am just coming off five fascinating months in South Asia on my second
Fulbright fellowship comparing the impact of globalization in India, Sri
Lanka and Bangladesh. In Bangladesh especially, the assistance I had from
local photojournalists was indescribably valuable. As I had hoped, they
helped me understand the continually evolving experience of contemporary
Bangladeshis as they encounter and adapt to globalization. Now that the
fun part (the photography) is done, I am starting to work my way through
the very complex process of figuring out exactly how to interpret,
conceptually frame and ultimately present what I actually found and
Although I was not one of the "early adapters" of digital photography, I
have caught up quickly and I am now fully proficient. I have also started
teaching classes with digital components. I was invited to be one of a
select few photographers contributing chapters to a pending book about
digital photography titled "Camera Raw Studio Skills." The book is being
edited by Charlotte Lowrie, and published by John Wiley & Sons. It will
be on store shelves this summer.
I have become affiliated with the maker of the software I-View Media
Pro, a great image browsing software. I do some software training and
demonstrating of their software. See more on this at:
Speaking of affiliations, I am also now also working with Richard
Rabinowitz of R2/Rainmaker Marketing Services. Richard will be serving as
a catalyst between print, broadcast and interactive media on one side and
wholesalers/resellers in the photography industry on the other. You can
see more about that starting at my page on the site at:

I am thrilled to tell you that I have a photo in the March 2006 edition
of the National Geographic magazine.
Finally, I am continuing my workshop teaching. Exciting workshops in
places as varied as Santa Fe, Italy, Maine, Guatemala and Montana are
coming up. If you know anyone interested in taking a class, direct them
I am continuing my other ongoing projects, most notably my recent work on
Quahoggers, Rhode Island's clam diggers. When that work is ready to show,
along with the newest work from India, I will update you.
Until then, thanks for reading this and I do hope you will pass the
information on to anyone else who might find it of interest.
