1. Morocco Something Interesting That Way Is

    I don't recall what these boys were looking at, but it must have been pretty great to capture all of their attentions at once.

  2. Morocco The Prophet's Birthday

    This boy was photographed from my house as he overlooked the festival for the Prophet Mohammed's birthday in Goulmima, Morocco.

  3. Micronesia bananas and coconuts

    This is one of my favorite photos from my two Micronesian years, it was taken from inside a tiny fruit stand at my Uncle Natsuo's house where I often bought the pictured produce.  

  4. Micronesia sunrise from a boat

    The tides again determined our approach to Walung.  Our silent, dark departure from Tafunsak marina allowed a sunrise approach to a community still attuned with non-electrical rhythms.  

  5. Venezuela My Peace Corps Reflections

    You might say I was one of the first Peace Corps volunteers, even though I just missed being counted among the first 1000.  I served in Venezuela as part of an agricultural extension project, during the period 1962-64.  As a Volunteer Leader, I supervised 19 Volunteers at 13 sites throughout six states.  The project’s main purpose was to develop 4-H Clubs (called 5-V in Venezuela), and provide the youth with techniques in agriculture and home economics. Prior to our departure from Washin...

  6. Vanuatu Pikinini blong Pentecost

    My Peace Corps experience would have been great without the little ones in this video, but they made it AMAZING! I was a youth development volunteer in the village of Abwatuntora, on the island of Pentecost. Mina, Aniva, Matai and Josep lived with me on a peninsula called Lapawariri. When I took this video, I had just started learning Raga, the language of north Pentecost, so my Bislama suffered a bit. You can hear them speaking Raga behind the camera, which I had to hold, because they wouldn...

  8. Morocco Dress up

    Graduation day for the women at our local Nedi Niswi (Women's Center) is a great excuse for the important folk in town to come out, show their support and drink tea.  As part of the pre-certificate entertainment, many of the students from the center's preschool class performed a variety of songs for the onlookers.  This girl, strikingly beautiful dressed as a mini-Tashelheet bride, looks less than thrilled by her upcoming performance. 

  9. Morocco End of Market Day

    I shot this photo in my site near the end of my service just as the market day was coming to a close.

  10. Morocco A Woman On Her Own

    Rare amongst many rural Moroccans, this young unmarried woman traveled throughout the country selling her weaving thanks in part to the support of local Peace Corps Volunteers. As she was showing me how to weave this day we talked about  her experiences travelling without male accompaniment and how that has changed the way she is viewed in her small mountain community.
