Here is a random sample of my photos. Visit my galleries for many more.

<p>Posters in Montevideo denounce current military figures for their role in the country's 1973-1985 military dictatorship: <em>These are torturers. Our memory won't forget, our dignity won't forgive.</em></p>
<p>A wall in Athens bears a call to action for a society floored by the recession and debt service that started in 2009 and dragged on through much of the following decade.</p>
<p>A view out into the Venice lagoon on a winter day.<br /></p>
<p>In the early 2000s, these two women helped scores of people each day, typing forms and offering advice from the lobby of an administrative office in Sofia. Elsewhere in the city, it wasn't unusual at the time to see entrepreneur typists on the city pavements, typewriter at the ready, near any office where carefully completed forms were a requirement. </p>
<p>People rushing toward a night out in midtown Manhattan.</p>
<p>Workers laying cobbles in Sibiu. </p>
<p>An angular modern house plays with the slope of its plot near Bressanone. The large front windows overlook vineyards.</p>
<p>St. Mary's church in the northern German city of Stralsund is an example of brick gothic architecture. It dates back to the 14th Century. This is the church's facade, leading up to a 104 metre bell tower (out of view).</p>

A lot of what I write professionally carries no by-line. Here are some of the works I have put my name to.
