Awarded Romanian Cultural Institute Grant

I am pleased to say that today I received a grant from The Romanian Cultural Institute in Bucharest to continue my project "Liminal Spaces" about Romania's post communist evolution. It is a wide-ranging road trip around Romania in the spirit of Robert Frank, Stephen Shore and Alec Soth.


Metelkova is an alternative culture community in the middle of Ljubljana, Slovenia. I wandered through on two different nights. . .

New Summer Workshop in Maramures, Romania

Spring sheep shearing in Valeni. I just got back to Bucharest after running a successful Orthodox Easter Documentary Photography Workshop in the Maramures region of northern Romania with Emese Benko. We will team up again to teach a week-long summer workshop there from 11-18 August which will allow for participants to photograph the St. Mary's Pilgrimage on the 15th.
