Nomads Here & Afar

July 24, 2010

Today is one of those days that I woke up thinking maybe working in construction or a grocery store would be a better option, 20 years of task oriented work and then retirement…

Wondering whether or not any of the photos or stories I have even make a difference, I have been mopey because because I have not had to hassle with customs, airlines and 3rd world inconveniences (joys) in a while and I crave an adventure.

A lot of you know that I really would like to tell the complete story of the Circuit Riders through photos & words, from the back of a bike myself. But the logistics of mounting a story about nomads in the USA is posing too be far far more difficult than doing the same 12,000 miles away in the middle of nowhere, in countries where I do not fluently speak the language!

Then this morning I notice a copy of Free Tibet Magazine in the mail pile and opened it up to see one of my photos as the main story, I feel a little better, a little.
Here is their Site and a link to a gallery of mine on their site.

The other day I went to check the Free Tibet website in order to read an article about the education needs/problems in Tibet, for which I had granted usage rights of a photo and pleasantly discovered they had dedicated an entire gallery of my work on their site.

Yesterday the Free Tibet group published one of my photos in a article about the displacement of Nomads by taking away their Yak herds and then relocating them to forced government housing settlements.
I photographed one of these settlements a couple of years ago.
