My life’s mission is to help empower indigenous peoples — helping them use photography and technology to enhance their culture and lives.
I fulfill this mission in part through my photography for the National Geographic Society, especially documenting indigenous cultures for the Societies Cultures Initiative.
I am also a National Geographic Fellow, a co-director of the Enduring Voices Language Preservation Project, a co-director of the National Geographic Society Cultures Ethnosphere Program, and director of the Society’s All Roads Photography Program. I’m a contributing editor for National Geographic Traveler, as well a contributing photographer for National Geographic Adventure.
My travels have taken me to all seven continents, including an expedition to the North Pole and seven expeditions to Antarctica. I have also worked as a war photographer for Time Magazine and other media outlets, covering conflicts in Sarajevo/Bosnia, Somalia, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Rwanda, Iraq, and the Middle East, as well as the Tsunami disaster in Banda Aceh, Indonesia.
I have published three books: Ancient Marks, on tattooing and scarification in traditional and contemporary cultures around the world; Where Masks Still Dance, about the people of New Guinea; and Keepers of the Spirit, a visual tour through several ancient cultures.
