Albuquerque, NM, United States
I am an award-winning visual journalist, covering environment, health and human rights, primarily in the developing world.
After spending several years as a staff photographer at newspapers in the American West, I began my freelance career in Cambodia in 1998. There, I shot news, features and investigative stories for Agence France-Presse, The New York Times, The Cambodia Daily and other publications. That was back at the time when papers still had darkrooms and photographers still processed their own film. These days I work with video and data visualization as well.
Working with my wife, author Karen Coates, we have combined our talents on numerous projects. Over seven years, we documented the widespread effects of unexploded ordnance in Laos. Our book, Eternal Harvest: The Legacy of American Bombs in Laos (ThingsAsian 2013), was a finalist for the IRE Book Award, a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Montaigne and Grand Prize awards, and a finalist in the Indie Book Awards.
