Cultures on the Edge

  1. I really liked your blog. In my views we should promote nomadic groups for better understanding about culture.As the culture is disappearing with growth of time. these are very ethnic group and have survived so many years. we should promote these groups .

  2. It’s a joy to meet these people through your images, they are so accepting of outsiders in my experience as well. I can’t wait to get back to Gujarat but would love to visit up north as well. Love India and love photography……thanks for your inspiring images.
    Regard, John.

  3. Takes me back to Nepal in the 70’s, the cold and dry dust and a people doing it tough… no different to the aboriginals in Oz. Things are changing so fast. People are losing their culture, their purpose. I see it all the time in North Queensland, in the aboriginal communities; nothing to do except drink and drugs and fighting each other. You take great picky’s… the new cameras help, point, snap and photo-shop edit. I take a hundred snaps for one good one. It’s all there in a face, ya just got to take the snaps; people are getting wise to the camera, they know it looks into their soul… and the camera-man don’t care; they take something away and don’t pay. Take a look at my page; quid pro quid.

  4. Amazing! It’s like Christmas or a birthday opening up your latest photos album. A wonderful gift of a glimpse into lesser known peoples, places and cultures! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Even the youthful faces have indications of a life being lived which seems to only come through into your lens. Thank you – again.

  6. I am awestruck by the power you captured in each face and all the details you captured that combine to tell the story. What an amazing photojournalist and artist you are!

  7. Thank you. I look forward to your blog each time I receive the email announcing it’s arrival. I feel as though I have traveled to far off places that I will never see in my lifetime.

  8. The skin on the children’s faces is to sad for me. I feel for the pain they must feel for what the way of life and weather has done to them. i pray that they have a good diet. Your skill and relationship with the people tells a story and one that the world needs to see.
    Thank You.

  9. These beautiful environmental, ethnographic portraits render each subject with an intimate moment; yet as a collection they offer a larger view of cultures that are among our world’s vulnerable. Thank you for valuing and seeing these ordinary people as worthy subjects and for the masterful frames that encourage us to learn more.

  11. Things you own, end up owning you (Fight Club)

    Although not nomadic at first glance, this quote is all about the logic behind a nomadic lifestyle. We usually become slaves to our attachments, to what we have. Nomads are about breaking free, being flexible, starting from scratch time after time.

  12. I just love getting your blogs. Each photo tells such a poignant story and I am envious of your ability and the opportunity to capture those images. Keep cataloging these amazing vistas

  13. It is always a special treat to see your email in my inbox. God Bless you and beautiful sensitive work that you do in showing the world very special souls. Thank you!
