Bridges in Vang Vieng, Laos

Vang Vieng is a great place to photograph because of the limestone karsts that pepper the countryside. Most backpackers who visit this part of Laos are here for the tubing on the Nam Song. The accepted practice is to hire…

Omo Valley Boy, Ethiopia

Ethiopian boy

I snapped this little guy who was hanging around waiting for the empty water bottle (which he duly got). He was real shy and didn't say anything - not that I can speak Amharic anyway. When I zoom in on…

Men With Lamps, Jijiga, Ethiopia

Evening chat in Jijiga

Jijiga is a little town near the border of Somaliland and the cross border trade is what keeps this place alive. There's not much to do here - it's hot, dusty and full of camels. I got to drink camel's…

This photo was taking at the end of a two day trek in Nam Ha NPA. It is incredible how much forest is still being burnt for agriculture purposes. Villages, like this one, are right inside the national park and…

Tam-Coc Boat Person, Vietnam

Tam-Coc Vietnam

The limestone outcrops around Tam-Coc (in Vietnam) are threaded by this deep green river and for a few dollars the locals will take you up the river in their boats. The weird thing is that they row the boats with…

I meet this lady on the Thai/Burma border. She and others from her tribe (Padung Hill Tribe) were living in a refugee camp in northern Thailand. They stretch their necks by wearing heavy brass coils. As they age they wear…

Giving alms in Lauang Prabang, Laos

A great photo opportunity in Laos is the daily ritual of Buddhist monks collecting alms just after sunrise. The monks rely on the food given to them each morning by the good folk of Lauang Prabang who are in turn…
