My Grand-Pere’s World

For more than half a century, my grandfather has spent every spare moment exploring the world, and photographing his journey. 80 countries. 20,000 high-quality, old-fashioned slides. Now each day, thanks to our digital world (and with a little help from his grandson!) he can share those places and faces and memories of a life well-traveled.

Petite Fleur

France 2018-06-13 15:36:33

What would be a good soundtrack to this picture of my then four-year-old daughter Cécile, posing in a flower market in southern France? Though I'm more partial to classical music, Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur" seems a better fit than, say, Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" ...

Don Quixote's Nightmare

Spain 2018-05-23 12:20:21

Two peaceful windmills in the Spanish countryside? For Miguel de Cervantes' colorful character Don Quixote (a favorite of mine), these would be ferocious giants — and he would promptly proceed to attack them!

Albanian Abandon

After six decades of good old film photography, I decided a couple of years ago that it was time to switch to a digital camera. One of the first series with my new gear was in Albania — this particular photograph under the watchful eye of Albanian soldiers.

Multi-Layered Selfie

Canada 2018-05-11 16:41:48

Fellow travelers were posing next to Queen Elizabeth Park's famous “Photo Session” statues, with the city of Vancouver as a backdrop. I added a layer to this already self-referential work of art: The shadow on the bottom right, next to the bronze statue of the photographer, is mine.

Welcome To My Turkish Cave

Turkey 2018-05-02 17:49:39

The only thing more impressive than beholding the ancient troglodyte structures of Turkey's Cappadocia region, was realizing that yes, some people still actually lived in them!

En Français, Please

Canada 2018-04-27 14:33:52

The language situation in Canada's predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec can lead to baffling bilingual signs like this one at the Montreal airport.

Religious Romania

Romania 2018-04-23 09:58:07

Romania is one of the richest countries I've set foot in when it comes to religious heritage. The central European state has history-packed cathedrals, exuberantly colorful churches — and in this case, beautifully peaceful monasteries.

Sicilian Smiles

Italy 2018-04-17 11:33:43

Our trip to Sicily came just as legendary Italian magistrate Giovanni Falcone was launching the widest-ranging anti-Mafia probe ever. This light-hearted moment in Palermo reminds me of the famous photo of Falcone and fellow magistrate Paolo Borsellino, each assassinated soon afterward by the Mafia.
