Below is a link to a retrospective slide show of my work this year, including my trip following the Ho Chi Minh Trail through Vietnam, a visit to the bizarre Republic of Kalmykia, the food crisis in Niger, protests and rural landscapes from France, the floods in Pakistan and the American Ballet’s historic visit to Cuba. The 60 photos are shown in chronological order.
Once again, my work this year would not have been possible without the generous support of photo editors, friends and other backers. I would particularly like to thank Bryan Erickson, Cyril Drouhet, Evelyn Masson, Antonin Lainé, Adrien Tomarchio, Daphne Angles, Patrick Witty, Mark Rykoff, Jenny Smets, Katie Mathy, Taylor Umlauf, Lidwine Kervella, Molly Roberts, Barbara Stauss, Lars Willumeit, Rick Shaw, Jean-Francois Leroy, Nick Papadopoulos, Dominique Viger, Scott Thode, Alina Grosman, Tanja Malmar, Stephen Mayes, Natasha Uppal, Laurene Champalle, Anne Guion, Brendan Hoffman, Ben Reich, Bruno Fert and Mathilde Damoisel.
For those of you interested in the technical aspects, here is the breakdown of how many shots in the series came from each of my cameras:
• Leica M9 digital – 40 photos
• Canon 5D Mk II digital – 12 photos
• Voigtlander R3M with Fujichrome film – 4 photos
• Leica M6 with Fujichrome film – 4 photos
