April Desktop Wallpaper

From Northern Kenya this January, a herder brings his flocks home under the setting sun to celebrate Almatho. I didn’t anticipate this one. We’d been out the night before making portraits and I’d seen similar scenes. I thought the herds were home now. But the next night they kept rolling in, and the celebrations began. I spent a couple hours on my knees in the dust, among sheep and camels, shooting into the sun and deliriously happy. Then someone gave me a camel. I love my work more than I can tell. Click the image to make it large, then right-click it to download as a large desktop wallpaper. Enjoy!

If you missed it this weekend, we announced the dates and details of the Ethiopia trip. Join Jeffrey Chapman and I as we explore and photograph Ethiopian Orthodox Christmas in the ancient city of Lalibela.

Today, April 01, is the last day to save $15 when you reserve your copy of SEVEN, Seven Continents + Seven Years, A Photographic Journey. On Friday I’m on press with my book, watching it print, learning how this whole thing is done and chewing my nails. Excited, but a little nervous. I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to this, thank you.

Tomorrow I’ll be releasing dates and details for the Day of the Dead trip to Oaxaca, Mexico.
