The ruins of Terebovlia Castle

One of the things I love about living in Western Ukraine is the history and amazing sights all around the area. There is something awe-inspiring about walking through the remains of castles, imagining the grandeur and power that at one time emanated from such powerful structures. I find myself peering out through arrowslits in the…

Hand made Azeri Rugs in Georgia

I was watching TV this morning and the presenters where sitting with a beautiful rug under the chairs. It reminded me of the time I spent in Georgia taking images for #ReWoven. These beautiful hand woven rugs are products of many months of skilled work by highly talented artisans.  I spent time in a camp…

Women in the DRC

Life in the DR Congo

I first visited Chahi Hospital back in 2014. Located in a poor and dangerous region of Bukavu in the DR Congo, the need for quality health care is tremendous. My first impressions of this hospital were of a small, and somewhat dirty facility where over worked staff battled over crowding, lack of basic essentials such…

Chahi Hospital in Bukavu DRC

I was with @orionpappyin the DR Congo and as we were being shown around Chahi Hospital, this boy was undergoing minor surgery. Chahi Hospital has undergone many changes and improvements over the last few years since I first visited in 2014, mostly due to the hard work and fundraising of #focuscongo. New equipment, surgery, training, and staff…

Swedish Snow Day

My daughter Hazel loves playing outside. Coming from Australia, snow is not a normal part of outside play, but she didn’t take long to fall in love with it! Snow balls, snow men, snow angels and sledding – perfect for a little girls play time! #snow #portrait #portraiture #sledding #snowstorm #nikon #kids #children #outdoors #adventure…

Dried Fish in the Markets of Bukavu

I love walking through markets in far away places. A well constructed mound of whole dried fish may not be a huge money maker back home, but on the streets of Bukavu in the DR Congo this won’t last long at all. #photojournalism #photography #fish #food #delicious #portrait #congo #congolese #drc #africa #market #delicacy #nikon…

A Portrait of Eero

Clean Wool – The vital ingrediant in hand woven rugs

Wool – An integral part of rug weaving in the Azeri villages of Georgia. Here the women of the village gather together, using sticks to beat the dirt and grime from the wool. The process is done while sitting in the rapidly flowing river which helps to wash the impurities away. #Georgia #traditional #artisan #photography…
