Mongolia Films – First Peek
A few quick uploads of some of my images from Mongolia. I picked these up at the lab this morning.
I shot these one morning on the Gobi well before breakfast in some of the most delicious morning light I’ve seen in ages. I wrestled with my Hasselbad and a roll of Fujichrome 100, though I’m not offhand sure exactly which chrome it was, for about 30 minutes and headed back to pack and get going for the day. But off all the mornings on the Gobi, this might be the most magical for me. I’m still so in love with the look and feel of film, each time I look at a new roll it takes my breath away… I’ll post a few more of these over the coming weeks.

The Singing Dunes, Mongolia, 2012 A little later than usual but I’ve given myself a little more freedom now since there’s no calendar on these things. Hope it’s worth the wait. An hour after I shot this, the photographer in this image walked up to me and apologized, telling me he thought he owed me [...]
Postcard From Mongolia
Gobi Desert, Mongolia, 2012. A quick hello from Ulaan Bator, Mongolia. We’ve just come in out of the dust and heat after 8 days off-road in the Gobi Desert. What an adventure! We spent time photographing sand dunes and horse races, the so-called White Stupa cliffs, and miles and miles of desert, horses, goats, and [...]
