The Siberia Project

Russia12 (1 of 1)

I’m very excited to announce that the time has come!   All of you who know me, know that one of my dreams has been to travel to Northern Siberia to photograph the nomadic reindeer herders of the 6th Brigade.  They have officially invited me to come and do the project.  I will leave at the beginning of August and live with the tribe for up to six months.

 

Internet access will be very limited.  But I will update this as regularly as possible.

 

If you would like to donate toward the cost of the trip and learn more about it, you can do so here.

And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars . . . everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you’d be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There’s something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being.”
