Trying to catch up on a six-month backlog of photo editing. Would like to update my sites with images from Ethiopia and Senegal trips. For now, here’s one of my favorites from Addis Ababa.

Senegal political video of the day – Compare’s Wade’s third term to taking a third wife. I especially appreciate the mockery of the Presidential Guards (shown in those red Brit uniforms).



Roller Addicts

Took a break from covering politically active rappers to photograph some “rollerblade addicts’ in Dakar. So much fun to shoot.

(Leita – it reminded me of your book, Rollerskating in the Desert!)



Opposition Protests in Dakar

February 18, 2012 | Filed Under Uncategorized | 2 Comments 

I’m back in Senegal for a few weeks to cover the elections and produce a couple of features. Today was spent running through the streets of downtown Dakar chasing protestors who were running from tear gas-hurling riot police. I ran into a bunch of old friends, (which was nice) and got a face full of tear gas multiple times (less nice).

The protestors are rallying against current President Abdoulaye Wade’s attempt to run for a third term, which is or is not against the constitution’s two-term limit, depending on whom you ask. Photos below.. more info to follow. Credit: Ricci Shryock/Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting



The Birds

February 3, 2012 | Filed Under Uncategorized | Leave a Comment 

When I was little, my dad and I would watch Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ all the time. Looking back, perhaps it wasn’t the best choice of films for a five-year-old. I had flashbacks of man-eating birds when I was shooting these gulls in SW Florida this week. I took a Panera bagel, threw it above my head, and shot away with a 50 mm. That basically means these birds are as close as they appear.

I’m so bummed I missed Tinariwen when they played in DC in November. Love them, and this music video is gorgeous.

If this isn’t beautiful, I don’t know what it is. Check out the 2:28 mark for sheer facial expression.
