The Canadian Council of the Blind has published a fundraising cookbook, Kitchens of the World, which features 200+ recipes and photographs from around the world.  A couple of my photos (including the one above) appear in the Haiti and Domincan Republic chapters.  The book is available online as a paid e-book download or in printed hardcover form.  Proceeds from the book go towards supporting programs for the blind and disabled.

Video slide show of Avaaz.org’s G8+5 Climate March in Rostock, Germany.


The background music is an instrumental piece by Hepnova. The inspiration for the piece came from my travels in the Nordic countries. In the piece, I attempt to evoke the awesome powers of nature, as well as the fragile balance of the polar regions.
