  1. War For Peace

    11 Apr 2016

    View from Rocinha Favela In 2011, the government of Rio de Janeiro launched an operation to pacify the Favelas in and around the city. For years, these communities existed at odds with the established social order, and for decades social inequality, crime and misfortune festered while Brazil stood by and…


  2. It’s difficult to relate when you’re not there.

    09 Apr 2016

    I sat here for hours at sunrise waiting for this photo. Exulansis: n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it - whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness - which allows it to drift away from the


  3. Ginga and the Rhythm of the Fight

    09 Apr 2016

    We found the object of our search in Morro de Sao Paulo. Blue skies, and warm beaches spotted with acai shakes and beautiful people. You know that cliche about beautiful Brazilians? It’s not a cliche. It’s ridiculously true. Canada, open the floodgates and let the Brazilians in because everything will…


  4. Love in Salvador

    12 Mar 2016

    The Lover’s Embrace Creamy skies of blue and golden sands inspired our flight to Salvador from Sao Paulo. The winter we yearned to leave behind in Canada was echoed through the murky, cloudy weather of Southern Brazil and we felt the energy of life, dance and sun coming from the…


  5. Life on Streets - Sao Paulo Protests

    10 Mar 2016

    A young man occupying Paulista Avenue, a major street in downtown Sao Paulo. When I was a boy, I learned about values. Injustice, fairness, progress … a lexicon of ideas filled my head, and for some reason they shined brighter and resonated deeper than so many other ideas. If I…


  6. Life in Streets - Sao Paulo

    23 Feb 2016

    Street Artist getting dirty on So let’s talk about the streets. Back in 2007, Lupe Fiasco released one of the greatest albums of all time: The Cool - a concept album that tells the story of a kid who navigates through the unjust world he was born into. Through this…


  7. And all of a sudden, I landed in Sao Paulo

    23 Feb 2016

    The entirety of the next few days was shot with a 28mm lens. It’s been a while since I’ve shared stories of my journey through this increasingly complex ride down the river of life. I left you in the thick of the forests in Mysore, India, learning about the complex…


  8. David and the 1,000 Steps of Chamundi

    06 Feb 2015

    Outside of the temple in the Chamundi hills. Is everything too easy? I mean, I often feel like every step is comfortable and every move is close. In our youth we learned of the struggles humans in the past had to face: harsh living conditions, endless work creating food sources…


  9. The Eternal Light of Fort Kochi

    10 Jan 2015

    The sun just refuses to leave. There are a lot of things I try to do while traveling - but more generally in everyday life. I try to get myself into a headspace that is a mixed cocktail of wonder, curiosity, compassion and action. It’s hard to maintain that train…


  10. The Keralan Backwaters

    03 Jan 2015

    From trains to boats, the journey continues. The last time I really enjoyed myself on a boat I was on the Rio Dulce in Guatemala, sailing with this revolutionary guy named Chris. He left England a long time ago, to live with the indigenous people in the forests of the…


  11. Varkala, Vishnu and Honey Ginger Lemon Tea

    29 Dec 2014

    Pick a side. Verbal learning of scriptures & motivated sacrifices, penance & charity can’t show you reality as it truly is. - The Bhagavad Gita. Sweet, sweet red rocks and cliffs of Varkala. It was nice to get away from massive cities, having spent the first week in Chennai and…


  12. Imagine a Train

    27 Dec 2014

    The best way to get around. The majority of our trip was through the south of the Indian subcontinent. India is monumental - it is enormous and very diverse. Throughout my travel I learned that India is incredibly multicultural and ethnically diverse. 1961 census of India showed that there are…


  13. New Delhi … and a little bit of Old Delhi

    24 Nov 2014

    <p>There hovers the sun, a distinctly massive glowing orb in the Delhi sky - diffused by layers of thick grey haze. It hovers silently lighting the city’s cracks and alleys, both shining light and throwing darkness onto the people of New Delhi. I stepped into a world of scintillating smells…


  14. 30 Hour Travel to Delhi

    21 Nov 2014

    So begins our trip to India. The plan is fly to Hong Kong, then into Delhi. Stay in Delhi for a few days then make our way down south towards Chennai and the southern tip featuring Kerala, Hampi and Goa I don’t really know what to expect. I think that’s…


  15. Call to Action

    14 Nov 2014

    I am embarking on a journey through India This blog will document my travels, experiences and most importantly it will be a visual record of the humanity underlying all of our lives. I want it to reach out to you and grab you - to give you a piece of…
