Bedouin sheik with a tattooed arm near Kerak, Jordan.
Every picture tells a story. The sheik (pictured) is the head of a Bedouin tribe living in an abandoned village near Kerak, Jordan. The tribe moved from an encampment in the desert, after the heaviest rains in 50 years flooded much of the land. The sheik is starting a foundation to raise money for educating Bedouin children who, along with their families, tend to move home with the seasons.
One of the joys of photography is meeting fascinating people and hearing their stories. More and more these days, my photography is taking me to places I hadn't imagined. It's an exciting time, with unexpected doors opening and intriguing opportunities unfolding.
I am happy to announce that today my new photography website is live! Won't you stop by for a visit? You may recognize pictures of a couple of beautiful bloggers.
I've been working since February with Gerlof van Ek of VANEK Creative. Gerlof is a talented website designer and developer, based in Amsterdam. Check back often, as the website's collection of photographs will continually evolve.
P.S. Am off to London, sans ordinateur. Back with more posts this weekend.
