After a successful European tour, the always experimental electronic music label Zizek has returned to Buenos Aires for what promises to be a hot season of parties. Zizek has been making waves in the worldwide electronic music scene for its unique blend of electro beats, Cumbia, Reggaeton and Argentine folk music.

Here are some photos from the homecoming party.

Escape from the City

Escape from the City

At times we all need an escape from the madness of the city, and Buenos Aires has plenty of madness.  Fortunately, the good folks at Urbanbiking.com provide a way out…at least for a day.  Train + bike + kayak = 8 hours of fresh air and adventure in the Tigre delta.  Here are a few […]


I can’t help it, I love this desert shot

I can't help it, I love this desert shot

I just came across this shot of the Kelso dunes in the Mojave National Preserve.  I spent the night in my van more or less where the photo was taken (one of my favorite camp sites) after driving 14 hours or so from Jay Maisel’s workshop in Santa Fe, NM.  There’s something about the balance […]

Critical Mass in Bueno Aires, November 09

Critical Mass in Bueno Aires, November 09

Bicycles are a growing trend in Buenos Aires and other major cities in Argentina where cars and smog tend to dominate the urban environment.  The first of every month, however, cyclists gather at the foot of BA’s most prominent landmark, El Obelisco, to take back the streets.  For more information, visit http://www.masacriticabsas.com.ar/ Here are a […]


Summer/Fall 2009

Summer/Fall 2009

For the past couple months I’ve been busy moving my life from California to Canada to Buenos Aires so I haven’t updated the site in some time.  Here are some selected photos from the summer and fall of 2009, mostly taken in British Columbia.  My nose is now aimed squarely at the grindstone so stay […]


Carnaval San Francisco 2009

Carnaval San Francisco 2009

Here are some photos from Carnaval this past weekend in San Francisco.  Rather than try and cover the event, I opted to do some “visual push-ups”, as Jay Maisel is fond of saying.

The Mountain That Eats Men in the Utne Reader

Cover photo and feature I’m excited to announce that the Utne Reader is running The Mountain That Eats Men on the cover of their 1’st annual international Issue. This is a reprint (with new layout and edit) of the story Andrew Westoll and I did on the mines of Potosí, Bolivia for The Walrus.


Good quote from Kim Komenich

I just came across this on the Fotovision site, and I think it is a great summary of where we are at as documentary photographers: “I think the time has come for photographers to embrace all the digital possibilities as a whole, whether it’s using audio and stills to produce a Web-based slide show or […]

I didn’t shoot much at Burning Man 2008, it was more of a getaway, but here are a few shots just for fun.

San Francisco LoveFest 2008

San Francisco LoveFest 2008

Last weekend was the 4’th annual LoveFest in San Francisco.  This is a spin-off from the famous Berlin Love Parade which appears to have taken root in San Fran’s counterculture soil and historically free-love atmosphere.  The event has grown substantially since the inaugural one which I shot in 2005.  This year’s parade went down Market […]

Peru Gallery Updated

Peru Gallery Updated

The Peru gallery now includes new material from my trip in 2007, including photos of the remote Incan ruins of Choquequirao, touted as the “New Machu Picchu”, though it receives less than 10% the visitors due to a grueling 3-day trek required to reach the site.  My trusty writer Andrew and I continued on from […]
