Always happy and honored to have a picture included in “The Best of Photography” (this version is for 2018. The almost impossible job to edit the amazing pictures in the magazine falls to @roseleen the director of Photography for @NatGeo. You can see the entire edit by following the link in my bio. Paralympian sprinter @wallace_jarryd Wallace’s mechanics are analyzed at the Southern Methodist University Locomotor Performance Laboratory in Dallas, Texas. “There was a lot I was doing wrong,” says Wallace, 28. The four-time world record holder, whose lower right leg had to be amputated because of a muscle disorder, uses the lab’s analysis of his stride to run even faster.
Posting another image from a @NatGeo article from a story on a 35-year long excavation in Ashkelon, a city that is part of modern Isreal. A collage of Ashkelon artifacts hints at the diverse cultures and individuals that made their mark on the resilient city, which was destroyed and rebuilt several times. As with other port cities of its day, Ashkelon bosted a very diverse population mixing local peoples with foreign merchants which helped the city become an exchange point for customs, languages, and ideas. Most of all, in the words of one text, "Ashkelon was a town likable to the heart, with firm walls and mightly structures, which people liked to inhabit." The city at one time or another was ruled by Ancient Egyptians, the Canaanites, the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Greeks, the Phoenicians, the Hasmoneans, the Romans, the Persians, the Arabs, and the Crusaders until it was destroyed by the Mamluks in 1270 CE. The archaeologist found, which makes perfect sense, that the deeper you dig the older the artifacts get. @Drtracyhoffman was the contact that we had and who made the story much better by helping me out. @atedge
While working on a story on an Archeological dig in Ashkelon, Isreal, I traveled to photograph the mosaic map on the floor of the Church of St. Stephen in Umm ar-Rasas, Jordan. The mosaic floor of the church is dated by an inscription to 785 CE, well into the Islamic period. It overlays another, damaged, mosaic floor of the earIier (587 CE), Church of Bishop Sergius." Umm ar-Rasas, known as Kastron Mefaa in classical times, is located about 45km south of Amman. The tiles are covered with sand to protect them, the Bedouin care taker cleans the sand away for our image. This picture and the story was photographed while on assignment for @natgeo. @atedge
I wanted to tell all of my friends who love photography about an amazing new Documentary about the one and only @jaymaisel “Jay Myself". The film by Stephen Wilkes is a beautiful, funny and insightful love letter from a mentee about his mentor. Jay has won numerous awards, but the awards don't do justice to the hundreds of young photographers that Jay has influenced. A true master of color photography his work stands alongside with #Ernest Haas, #DavidAlanHarvey, #PeteTruner, and #WilliamEggleston. Somehow after moving to NYC and only being in the city for a few months, I found myself working for Jay in his legendary Germantown Bank building on the Bowery. I didn't stay very long but I was inspired by his vision that was about so much more than photography. Nearly Twenty years later I was able to teach alongside Jay at the Jackson Hole workshops, I left the workshop inspired and in awe of his commitment to the craft after a career of over 60 years. To my surprises, he wanted to trade prints and I was quick to oblige as I didn't want this opportunity to pass by. The last image is the one I selected, cheers to Jay and Bavo to @StephenWilkes for a wonderful film. If you are in NYC catch a screening tonight at 9:45 @ the IFC as part of @docnycfest. @jaymaisel JayMaisel #colorphotography
My thoughts are going out to all Veterans today, but most especially to my father Russ Clark. My Dad enlisted in the Navy after Pearl Harbor, he was rejected because of a hernia, he went and had the operation and then set out with his classmates where he fought in the Atlantic and Pacific. Love you.
