An Afghan dentist crafts a set of dentures in the old quarter of Qandahar. Few Afghans will visit a dentist in their lifetime. I had walked past this shop many days, and happened to meet him as he arrived at his shop at five thirty in the morning on his bicycle. #Kandahar, #Afghanistan, 1998.

I remember as a teenager learning about a voyage that Charles Darwin took on the HMS Beagle. For five years, he joined the expedition which allowed him to explore the coast of South America and the islands including the Galápagos. His spirit of adventure and enormous curiosity impacted everything he did for the rest of his life.
My two trips to Galapagos were different than any shoot in my career. It was fun to photograph animals in their habitat, which in many ways has been unchanged since Darwin's time. #Galapagos, #Ecuador
