I’ve set up a special print gallery containing photos from my time in Nepal. 100% of all proceeds will go to Mercy Corps, an organization that is boots-on-the-ground in Nepal, providing aid in the form of shelter, clean water, and hygiene.

Earth is past due for a massive solar storm.

Estimates based on historical space weather patterns show that Earth may be due for a massive solar storm — an eruption of magnetically charged gas from the Sun’s surface — that could leave millions of people without power for up to two years and cost between $1 and $2 trillion. The impact would be disastrous.

The Many Faces of Kathmandu

Nepal suffered a devastatingly catastrophic earthquake just before noon on April 25th. Over 1000 have been confirmed dead and many thousands more are injured. This tragedy has hit me very close to home as I have been to Nepal several times and have fallen in love with the country and people. The Nepalese are some of the kindest, warmhearted and resilient people I have ever met. These photos I took last year have immortalized a few faces of Kathmandu and they haunt me in the wake of this disaster.

Nepal is very poor and will have an extremely difficult time rebuilding in the weeks and years to come. The people of Nepal need our help. Please consider donating to one of the following reputable sources. Let us all come together to help these people during this difficult time.
