Over the years I’ve written, photographed or edited over 20 books. These included science books for kids, photo instruction, and mountain landscape photography. I was the co-author of Extreme Alpinism with Mark Twight and performed an edit his Kiss or Kill. Planet Ice sent be around the world photographing ice near the poles, in alpine environments, and adjacent to the equator. A number of luminaries contributed essays to the book. Now I have six books in progress. Three of them are nearing completion and most are departures from my previous work. One is a photo essay on a particular kind of landform. Another examines religious belief. Books on Madagascar and Burma are in progress. My latest project focusses on a single source for found abstracts. And a ten year project about male-to-female transgender people in Thailand is coming together and will be published first. I will create blogs on submenus of this blog for each book starting with the ladyboy book with the others to follow as my photo collection for each nears completion. The text will be one edit beyond a rough draft, and the order of the posts may not reflect the final document.
