Mrs Thuji General Shop
Mrs Thuji General Shop, Punakha, Bhutan – 2014

This general shop is located in the middle of nowhere. However, it is a popular place, as it is also a bus stop. Right from the onset, I marveled at the setting. I felt like I was watching an opera. The villagers were the audience seated in their luxury boxes, the performing actors the two goats. The play could have been called “The Advent Calendar.”

God’s Rays
God’s Rays, Tha Ya Bu temple, Bagan, Myanmar, 2014

In Myanmar, parents want to give a good life and good education to their children. As life is truly harsh, they give their children up for adoption to monasteries, where they become monks. Their life then becomes dedicated to Buddhism with daily prayers, food gathering, and focus on respecting others. As an outsider, I felt that their life is like a Swiss clock, regulated, with a heart beat that never stops and never surprises. The murals were critically damaged during the 2016 earthquake. The Temple has been closed since.

Ring Leader
Ring Leader, Huolie Yi Village – 2016

At eight years old, she seems to have already gone through a full cycle of life. She takes care of all her siblings when her parents work in the field. She is the go-to person in this one street village, as other kids look at her for direction. Her exterior demeanor shows toughness, but the inside is tender and warm. On a subsequent trip I shared images with her and she thanked me with a big smile and laughter with her friends.

Old Timers
Old Timers, Amboseli Conservation Area, Kenya – 2013

Families are cohesive groups of females and their young. Adult males leave the herd at 14 years of age, and either range alone or join other bull elephants in “bachelor herds,” rejoining females only at breeding times. At one point in their life when the older bulls can’t compete with the younger bulls, they retreat in solitude or with elder males. These “old timers” are really impressive and need to be protected from the poachers.

Shadow Me
Shadow Me, Amboseli NP, Kenya – 2012

Elephants are very intelligent creatures. At a young age they rely on the mother to teach them the basic of life. This youngster, about 2 months old couldn’t resist mimetic his mother. As a guideline, if an young elephant can crawl under the mom’s belly, he is less than one year old. Did you notice the cattle egret too?

March of the Elephants
The Great Migration, Serengeti NP, Tanzania – 2012

The Great Migration is a circular grazing path determined by the availability of food. An incredible 2 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra start in the Serengeti in January where they give birth to their young. As the rains end, the herds move west following the rivers on their way to the Masai Mara in Kenya. In the summer the herds all arrive into Kenya, crossing crocodile infested rivers to get there. In the late fall and winter, the herds move back towards the Serengeti chasing the rainy season and the process begins again. Really it’s a yearlong search for food, water and safety.

Javeena and Ganesha 3, India – 2016

Javeena and Ganesha investigate the ever-fluctuating relationship between people and animals. Specifically zooming in on elephants — a creature that has been both worshiped and tormented by man — this series aims to explore the tension in these extremes. How can the same interaction conjure from so many different outcomes: love, tenderness, fear, anger, disgust, trust, and so much more? Employing a sense of romanticism, I am striving to capture the poetic sensibilities between creatures. Though separated by language, these pictures attempt to bottle that transcendent, unspoken bond between living beings. The connection between man and beast will always be unpredictable, but “Interactions” shows us just how beautiful that synergy can be.

Javeena and Ganesha 1
Javeena and Ganesha 1, India – 2016

I met Javeena’s father first. He is a mahout, who works with elephants and makes his living taking tourist on elephant rides. I was intrigued of where these elephants live. So I followed him to his home. When we arrived at the elephant compound, I noticed that little girl. I asked the mahout if I could photograph her with his elephant. The answer was of course: she is my daughter. This is one of a life time experience witnessing the bond between Javeena and her elephant.

Javeena and Ganesha 2 – 2016

After spending a few days at the elephant compound with Javeena and her elephant, I was able to get in the water with them. It is amazing the awareness of the elephant and the bond the two have created. Such a memorable experience.

Traveling to the Field
Traveling to the Field, Road to Huolie Village – 2016

Over the years, the total length of highways in the region has increased from a few miles to close to 8,000 miles. But a lot of the roads are still unpaved and accessed mostly by horse-drawn carts. This family was traveling over 10 miles to reach their field. More than 90 percent of all farms in China are less than 2.5 acres, and the average farm size is among the smallest in the world.

Stepwell
Stepwell, Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India – 2016

Stepwells were built all over Northern India to collect water during the rainy season. Steps were built to access the water at any time of the year. Women worked like clockwork getting the water at the same time each day. Their pace walking down the stairs was brisk with their jar carried on their hip. On the uphill, they carry their jars on their heads.

Farmers with Water Buffalo
Farmers with Water Buffalo, Yangjiangxi Village, Fujian Province, China – 2015

Agriculture is a vital industry in China, employing over 300 million farmers. The government prides itself in providing food, shelter, and a good life to all its citizens. However, the reality is grim, as the younger generation would rather work in a factory then tend the land. Nevertheless, the elders work to keep the traditions alive.

Karmathaksun Dechencholing Private Monastery
Karmathaksun Dechencholing Private Monastery, Eastern Bhutan – 2016

I am the only Westerner who has had the honor to sleep inside this private monastery. It was fate. On my return flight from a previous trip, I sat next to a known Buddhist painter, Mr. Nima Dorji, who had been commissioned to paint this monastery with his dad. To my delight, he offered to become my guide on subsequent trips. It not only gave me special access to the place, but also the opportunity to witness how Nima paints personal and spiritual stories.

Aimoldir - Eagle Huntress - 7 years old
Aimoldir - Eagle Huntress - 7 years old, Sagsai Soum, Mongolia – 2017

Her charismatic looks and obvious bond with her falcon make her a favorite for photographers. I overnighted at her home and photographed her at 1AM. After we were done, she asked me to show her all the images on my computer. To my surprise, her energy kept her up until 4AM. My question was: “Are you going to be tired at school tomorrow?” Her answer: “We do get an excuse to skip class when we meet foreigners.

The Hunt at Altai Soum
The Hunt at Altai Soum, Altai Mountains, Mongolia – 2017

Western Mongolia’s Altai region is one of the most remote spots on the planet. Few roads traverse this massive area, and the high icy peaks of the Altai Range bordering Mongolia, Kazakhstan, China, and Russia form an impenetrable wall that keeps all modern encroachments at bay. Traveling through this region at minus 10F in early November made me wonder how the hunters survive the harsh winter.

The Offering
The Offering – 2017

Is there anything more magical than the circus? It’s a place of pure fantasy and illusion. It enables us to lose ourselves, to be transported by mystery and stories from far-off places. And there is no animal more emblematic of the spirit of the circus than the elephant. Painted with intricate designs and ornate quilts, the elephant immediately signals that we are leaving the normal world behind and entering into the world of the unexpected.

Grand Entrance
Grand Entrance – 2017

Through a combination of paintings and photographs, “Circus” aims to depict the timelessness and wonder of bazaars and big top shows. Utilizing a postcard surrealism, this project reimagines the very medium that used to announce the arrival of the circus.

Shiva Boy
Shiva Boy – 2017

Similar to a magic show, these photographs blur the lines between reality and fantasy, until the viewer isn’t exactly sure what’s real. While the circus is still around, it no longer holds the allure that it once did. Perhaps in the dreamy, whimsical setting of these pictures, viewers can rekindle the past one last time.
