Sahara Learning to Photograph, Cali 1989

In 1989 I took Sahara for a visit to my mother in Cali, Colombia. My father had died three years earlier and the old household had inevitably changed. This image remains from that trip and it shows my 8 year old daughter trying her hand at photographing my mother's young kitchen helper.

Otavalo Market, Ecuador 1979

This image comes from a colour Ektachrome slide later converted to a 4x5 black and white internegative. It shows one aspect of what was back then the wonderful market in the beautiful mountain town of Otavalo. I visited Ecuador for the first time in 1979 and was enrolled as an all around production hand by Ecuadorean journalist Wilson Ruiz, who was shooting a documentary about immigration to Canada, with particular emphasis on the family nexus of the Ecuadorean people.
