The manmade caves of ancient North African natives and nomadic tribes, (located today in the south of Tunisia,) still remain intact and in some cases functional to their initial purpose of keeping cool and protected from the harsh and importunate Saharan heat. _________ 09/2018 _________________ ADOX CMS 20s ______________________________________________________ #filmportrait #traveltheworld #expofilm #35mmfilmphotography #tangledinfilm #35mm #filmphotographers #portraitmood #friendsinstreets #filmphotographyisnotdead #filmphotograpy #africa #35mmfilm #filmphoto #filmphotographic #filmphotographer #bnwportrait #filmphotooftheday #travelphotography #filmphotographyproject #desert #Natgeoyourshot #Worldpressphoto #Adox #Nikonphotocontest #Nikonphotography #bnwfilm #bnwtravelportrait #traveltheworld #Tunisia

The write up for such a scene would feel empty for how I felt witnessing these beautiful experiences of nature while traveling across the Northern Coast of Chile. Throughout most of Northern Chile, Central Peru and even as far as the east of Bolivia, most of the coastal and interior terrain of South America is a desert scape. While the deserts hold their own beauty across the world, finding moments like this sunset to appreciate amongst the monotonous scenes of a desert’s landscape keeps the sanity about one’s traveling directive and reasoning for being in such a desolate environment. _________ 02/2019 _____________ Provia 100E _____________________________________________________ #nikon #natgeo #modernvoyage #provia #provia100f #streetphotography #sunset #chile #southamerica #coastline #desert #oceanview #worldpressphoto #filmphotography #newworlddevelopment #journalism #instagram #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #naturephotography

The beauty of the disarray within this scene is what drew me in. As the mechanic enthrallingly watched his soap opera surrounded by pinups and his mountainous array of varying car parts, it was like another offbeat Norman Rockwell knockoff scene set in in belly of South America, Lima, Peru. _________ 02/2019 __________________ Ektachrome 100E ______________________________________________________ #nikon #nikonf3hp #streetphotography #blue #magazine #lifeframer #normanrockwell #painting #beautiful #filmphotography #slidefilm #ektachrome #peru #southamerica #timemagazine #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #natgeoadventure #filmcamera #journalism #irimages #beautifulscene #latinamerica

High in the lower Himalayas within the region of Kashmir lay small villages peppered across the mountainous terrain. These small communities are often only inhabited by a few hundred people or less. • Seen here in the background is a mud, wood and stone built home while in the foreground a Kashmiri woman can be seen gathering sticks for the house fires to keep warm during the cold and sometimes harsh winters. _________ 12/2017 __________ Tri-X 400 _______________________________________________________ #nikon #nikonf3hp #trix400 #kashmir #india #pakistan #himalayas #filmphotography #bnwphotography #bnwfilmphotography #bnwfilm #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #nikonphotocontest #streetphotography #irimages #lifeframer #worldpressphoto #lifemag #lifemagazine #newyorkerphoto #asia #centralasia #explorenepalofficial

The Peshmerga are the predominant military force within the region of Kurdistan, Iraq. The Pershmerga have been involved in fighting isis on all fronts of the northern region’s territory along with assisting to establish a secure border around the region keeping isis at bay while also, in effect, keeping other bordering nations at arms length as well. Kurdistan has essentially been the overland screening police for the Turks contact with the south of Iraq. For this reason and others, Turkey has deemed anyone involved with the region’s politics militaristically, a terrorist. • For years the Region’s people have been vying for national autonomy and for years they have been at the cusp of making the initially far fetched idea a reality. Currently, Kurdistan has opened it’s borders to friendly allies while the rest of Iraq has remained locked down by it’s formerly established politics. Kurdistan has proven to be one of the Middle East’s most progressive sudo nations in regional politics and human cultural development. • Whereas not recognized by all members of the UN and especially of bordering nations as being an independent nation unto itself, Kurdistan still remains strong in their position as strongly independent in their political position and a peaceful, inviting people throughout. ____________ Nikon F3/T 85mm 1.4 ais Ektar 100 _________ 05/2018 ____________________________________________________ #nikon #natgeo #irimages #lifeframer #middleeast #kurdistan #worldpressphoto #iraq #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #kodakfilm #kodak #timemagazine #middleeastimages #filmphotography #travelphotography #journalism

There is something about the lifeless hull of any ship’s vessel which is left to rest and rot in the place of it’s abandonment that invokes a uniquely surreal venetian of the soul. • Pictured here: the ship wreckage of a Syrian Freighter run aground in the mid 1970’s and left as it’s final resting place off the southern coast of Cyprus. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D ADOX II 20s _________ 05/2018 _____________________________________________________ #nikon #nikonf3hp #landscapephotography #bnw #bnwlandscapephotography #adox #bnwfilm #bnwphotography #natgeotravel #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #worldpressphoto #irimages #lifeframer #natgeo100contest

Bolivia’s rugged and often treacherous terrain bled into the cultural disposition of those who have lived in the countrysides and desert scapes generationally for centuries. • Pictured here is a stretch of Yungas Road, considered by many for decades to be the world’s most dangerous road to travel by car. It was estimated that between two to three hundred people per year would fall to their death attempting to reach the nearest town via this road. Today, since a bypass was recently built to avoid this road, Younes is used predominantly by locals living in the region who live in the mountains or aspiring adventurers looking for the fix of high off danger. • For myself, it was pleasantly benign. The road was no more dangerous or difficult to navigate, even in the high rain season of the region, as other roads such as those found throughout Central Asia, although, in the high rain season along a narrow, unguarded, muddy and sometimes flooded single lane path with waterfalls cascading directly onto the trail, it was no wonder why with so many people crossing both ways via bus that it was coined endearingly by the locals, “Death Road”. • ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D Provia 100 F _________ 02/2019 _____________________________________________________ #nikon #nikonf3hp #provia100f #provia #bolivia #natgeo #natgeo100contest #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #nikonphotocontest #green #nature #journalism #corico #mountains #filmphotography #slidefilm #analogphotography #landscapephotography #landscape #southamerica #deathroad #roadofdeath

Sri Lanka was surprisingly pleasant and incredibly peaceful for a country which had been all but tarnished in the eyes of the general public for decades. • Until recently Sri Lanka would invoke ideas and visuals of extremist groups and civil war disputes in the minds of those who knew of it’s existence. Now, at least for the last fifteen years, Sri Lanka has become one of West European hipster’s go-to vacation spots. With the recent ‘Easter Day’ terrorist activity and Sri Lanka’s financial crisis leading to a seemingly inevitable economic devastation at the hand of Chinese lenders, Sri Lanka may once again face a poor light shed on the febrile state of their affairs with perhaps even worsened consequences than has been seen before. • Unless the world comes to the aid of Sri Lanka’s presently lamentable inevitability, their perceptive rise from a terminable state will once again and with greater elan, be rendered to their former devastations. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D Ilford XP2-400s _________ 08/2018 _____________________________________________________ #nikon #natgeo #nikonf3hp #natgeotravel #worldpressphoto #lifeframer #irimages #streetphotographyintheworld #srilanka #bnw #bnwphotography #island #journaling #journalism #photojournalism #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #filmphotography #bnwlandscape #bnwdocumentaryphotography #stateoftheworld #indianocean

These Chilean locals wait out the night at the local bus depot in order to rush the ticket windows for a seat on the next bus out of town. I decided to wait the night out as well instead of finding a hotel, I practiced my Spanish and made wonderful friends, although, I was certainly glad to have stayed for an early bird’s ticket. There were hundreds, all shuffling half awake, then rushing with immense urgency to the ticket windows, as if purchasing a seat on the last helicopter out of Vietnam. The scene was a mad house, not unlike the iconic photographs of Buyers and sellers at Wall Street. Luckily, some friends I had made while in the outer courtyard hours previously were Colombians headed to the same city I was and found us all a ride, it was long, grueling at times and another full day and night of traveling but all well worth the glimpse into the daily lives of those without means otherwise to reach their intended destination. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D Tri-X 400 _________ 02/2019 ____________________________________________________ #bolivia #nikonphotocontest #kodak #kodakfilm #kodaktrix400 #trix400 #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #bnw #film #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #irimages #worldpressphoto #lifeframer #life #travel #southamerica #chile #nikonf3hp #nikon #shootlife

Iceland’s amazing landscapes have an incredible and magnificent tone unto themselves, although, at times they may overshadow some of the more intricate and otherwise benign details which aid in making the island the unique country it is. Here on the docks of Keflavik Harbor, in the mist and cloud covered day limiting the view, which would otherwise dampen the day’s mood, even the fisherman’s nets are brightly colored, as if to proclaim, we’ll still make your stay cheery, even if you can’t enjoy the view we’ll show you our spirit in the details. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4D Ektar 100 _________ 07/2018 #landscapephotography #keflavik #iceland #colors #harbor #journaling #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #kodak #kodakfilm #kodakektar100 #ektar100 #filmphotography #35mmphotography #ishootfilm

It was interesting to see much of the leftover equipment, (mostly German), from World War Two scattered about parts of the north Saharan desert in the far south of Tunisia. Some items, such as storage crates and ammunition containers were repurposed for use in unconventional ways along with other various smaller pieces of equipment carried by soldiers at the time. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D ADOX II CMS 20s _________ 10/2018 ________________________________________________________ #nikon #saharadesert #sahara #desert #northafrica #africa #tunisia #tataouine #ww2 #adoxcms20 #bnw #bnwphotography #filmphotography #35mmphotography #35mm #nikonphotocontest #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #worldpressphoto #lifemagazine #lifeframer #german #bnwtravelphotography #bnwtravel

Of all the little backroads taken in many cities across multiple countries, the city in Gaziantep was certainly the most confusing to navigate. Starting from my hotel, centered in the heart of the city and walking, (apparently), in a circle around the city until reaching the outer rim as if walking an inverse Japanese labyrinth. It was one of the only times in which I felt truly lost or confused while traveling through a city. ____________ Nikon F3/T 50mm 1.4 D Provia 100 F _________ 05/2018 _______________________________________________________ #nikon #nikonf3hp #provia #provia100f #turkey #turkish #gaziantep #middleeast #europe #asia #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo100contest #time #newyorkerphoto #washingtonpost #photojournalism #worldpressphoto #nikonphotocontest #landscapephotography #lifeframer
