River Kids

Siem Reap, Cambodia, March 2001: While wandering aimlessly around the dusty streets of Siem Reap on a stinking hot afternoon, I photographed these local children fishing in the Siem Reap River. In 2001 Siem Reap was still a quiet, laid-back, dusty back water town- but on the cusp of huge changes. This was at a time before […]

Loch Ness

Scotland, 1999: While visiting Loch Ness in 1999 I did what surely everyone else does- some good old-fashioned monster spotting.

Smithfield

Dublin, Ireland, 2004: Smithfield horse market is held on the first sunday of every month. At approximately 400 years old, it is one of the longest (and most controversial) horse fairs in the world… The Smithfield area was given a facelift in the late 1990’s to accomodate the denizens of Ireland’s new found economic wealth.
