Victoria Falls.

Ever since picking up a camera it had been a dream of mine to capture the magnificence of Africa’s Victoria Falls on film. When the opportunity came, I did not miss it.

Spending almost a full five days in the border town of Livingston, Zambia. Waking each morning before light, and hazarding the taxi ranks to return well beyond sunset I photographed the falls each day for three consecutive days. I shot all the film I could spare, not yet knowing if I would be able to replace the rolls when I arrived in the capitol city of Lusaka.

The year was 2005, I had just hitchhiked across the deserts of Namibia and was en route for East Africa where I would finish out my last weeks on the continent shooting on Lake Malawi and eventually turn my lens to the Indian Ocean.

A collection of photographs taken through the years from my travels in Latin America and Africa. Dogs have always played a strong role in the images I take home with me, whether those images be in my mind or on film. In their own way I feel these animals represent something of the cultures I am hoping to understand, experience, and document.
