About

I am an anthropological photographer. I was originally a newspaper photojournalist for small papers in New Jersey, and continued working with papers and photographers from my teens through my 30’s, even shooting for the publications office at the University of Redlands while getting a degree in Archaeology there. Later I became a contract archaeologist (CRM for military and civilian agencies for those who know such things), also working as a photographer and photojournalist. Eventually I also taught Anthropology and Archaeology at Universities, while shooting for papers and magazines and working with media businesses like Magnum Photos in New York, where I assisted with marketing and archive work between teaching gigs. I’ve been doing a long term research project on South East Asia, and have been shooting for stories and stock while researching. I am most interested in how globalization is changing traditonal societies by integrating them into the world economy and, in turn, how this is creating a world culture, while leaving many people behind.

Assembling Documentary Projects

I am looking into putting together a pitch for a film documentary project.

The subject is early Asian/Western relations during the “Age Of Commerce” in SE Asia, and how trade in Asia during the 16th and 17th centuries contributed to the making of the modern global economic and political system (it’s more colorful than it sounds, involving scheming Greek adventurers, oversexed Puritans, transvestite French diplomats, and a billion dollars of gems and gold on the bottom of the Indian Ocean). Now, it seems that getting such a project started is a bit of a catch-22, it’s hard to drum up interest if you don’t have a production company lined up, and production companies don’t want to get into it if you have no money lined up. Any experiences/suggestions out there? Useful websites on how to do the pitch? Not sure if anybody out there has tried this sort of thing, but you’re all such a clever, fractious bunch, I figured I’d give it a shot.
