Birds, Beasts, and Blossoms in Thai Art
Birds, Beasts, and Blossoms in Thai Art

The highlight of my early work was when I was asked to write and photograph pictures for a book on Thai art for Oxford University Press. It took five years to research, write, find the images I needed throughout Thailand, take the pictures, and create the line drawings. The resulting book Beasts, Birds, and Blossoms in Thai Art, was published in 1994.

I began my career in photojournalism as a stringer for Associated Press in Central America during the late 1970s-early 80s. Highlights were when I took the first photographs of the Shah of Iran and his wife as he sought asylum in Panama.
