A reason to re-examine the definition of Nomadderwhere

I was recently reviewing my explanation of the term “nomadderwhere”…ya know, for kicks, because that’s what I do on Spring Break. Or, more accurately, I was looking for more meaning to go behind the sequence of my images for a photo exhibition. I began with the image I loved the most, because it’s the latest [...]

Ten things my Instagram feed says about my February

1. I was able to seize a great opportunity to hear Al Gore speak (fo’ free!) at Harvard University. Always love a chance to hear troubling data about the planet in a Southern accent. That experience turned out to be the start of many great speakers in February, including two BBC World journalists, the exiled [...]

Help me prepare for my first travel photography exhibition

This exhibition entitled “Far, Far Away” is a chance for some people in Wabash, Indiana to see destinations and cultures they otherwise might never see. Additionally, all the images were taken by people who claim Wabash as their hometown, adding a layer of accessibility to the images. The other person sharing the space with me will be showing many images from Antarctica. Just amongst the two of us, our images will span all seven continents!

Photoblog: Sundays in Buenos Aires make the whole week

For over a month, I’ve been sinking my claws into Buenos Aires, Argentina. Within the first two weeks, I found an apartment with a new roommate/co-worker in the beautifully-located barrio called Recoleta. Its coordinates in the city as well as decor and baller terrace(s) cause me to internally chant: I’m not worthy!

Photoblog: a gray day in the Swedish village of Landsort

After the Berlin trimester ended, I flew to Copenhagen to begin a wee Scandinavian tour. The best part of this week was being with friendly residents and visiting their homes. Yes, homes. Not houses, accommodations, hotels, hostels, or dorms. In both Copenhagen and Stockholm, I stayed in city homes and then visited vacation homes by [...]

Photoblog: Details of the hipster haven that is Berlin

Ten days ago, I descended into a brisk, foggy day at TXL, equipped with a new currency, my crusty old travel backpack, and a vague awareness of my new home‘s coordinates. In the time since my arrival, I’ve gotten familiar with the suburb of Kleinmachnow and explored my neighborhood on foot. Yesterday was my first [...]

Photoblog: Final Crew Meal at Mexico City’s W Hotel

Flashing back to the June Mexico trip with ProjectExplorer.org, I thought I’d memorialize a fantastic project-closing meal we had at the W Hotel in Mexico City. We relaxed after a hectic day of capturing on film Mexico’s complex and difficult history. It was a well-deserved and tasty spread. [All photos were taken by Vijaya Selvaraju.] [...]

Consume & Update: The Go! Edition

I just felt like churning the butter for a couple awesome things this week. Go, China, Go, China, Go! Don’t speak. Don’t think. Don’t even type. Direct your attention below.

Photoblog: Merida and the Yucatan

Daily wake-ups as early as 4:15am, constant encouragement to produce content (or brainstorm more concepts), keeping up with another internship, e-mails, and friendships from home – this goes far beyond a full-time job. Week three on-location has been draining, frantic, but overwhelmingly delightful. No matter how plum-tuckered-out I get during production, I still find our [...]

Photoblog: Oaxaca

I’m not too interested in describing every detail of our week in Oaxaca. Well, maybe not now. I woke up nineteen hours ago for a market walk and just spent two hours dancing and flopping on the mats at a Lucha Libre training center. Arts. Crafts. Food. Style. Passion. Nature. Oaxaca, you’ve got it going [...]

Photoblog: Xochimilco and Frida

Man, I’m swamped with ProjectExplorer. The amount of work we have to create and cover in our short three weeks on locations is deep and vast. However, I’m still loving it and virtually recovered from my bout of hilarious food poisoning. We have moved on to Oaxaca for the second destination of three on this [...]

Update from Mexico City

Even though last week’s Consume & Update received a lovely compliment, the production and content schedule here in Mexico is too daunting to also include a thorough perusal of the internet’s best in travel and blogging. Instead, I’ll make this Sunday Update all about the job with ProjectExplorer, on location in Mexico City. Update on [...]

Consume & Update on a Saturday?!

Normally I publish my community outreach on Sundays, but as tomorrow is a holiday, I thought I would switch it up a bit…just this week. That “Rascal,” Kim Jong Il, and His Antics Far from simply a rascal, North Korea’s dictator is one paranoid character, with due cause, and has recently been noted for traveling [...]

Photos of the Week: Brazil

Photos of the Week: Tamil Nadu

Grouping India together as a whole is somewhat of a misleading concept, as the entire country is about as diverse as the whole of Asia. Tamil Nadu was the first state I entered in India, and boy did it shock and awe! Homestays, rickshaws, train rides and rural villages – these were my first glimpses [...]

Photos of the Week: Mexico

Last week, I cruised the length of Baja California and walked on Mexican soil for less than 15 hours altogether. Clearly, a cruise is not about the port destinations but the pampered journey in between. But my pupu platter of Mexico fulfilled a desire to affirm my ideas of the country and become determined to [...]

Photos of the Week: The Fijian Highlands

I know, for most people, Fiji calls to mind some good old fashioned hedonism and self-indulgence. Sounds like a great time. Some day I’ll know that side of the island experience, but I’m darn sure I loved seeing the other side, the village life of the Highlands…where Fiji distinguishes itself from the average island’0′resorts.

Photos of the Week: Srinagar, Kashmir

For a few days, I stayed in a houseboat on Nageen Lake in Srinagar, Kashmir (October 2008). My arrival coincided with the end of Ramadan and, therefore, the end of the ceasefire between India and Pakistan. Read my blogs from Srinagar to get a sense of fear/comfort I experienced at this odd and tense time. [...]

Photos of the Week: Angkor Temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia

The moss and the orange. It’s glorious. The Angkor temples are ancient and were erected by elephants hundreds of years ago. And Angkor Wat has an awe factor that screams “virtuosity”.

Photos of the Week: Zambia

There are African safaris. And there are African canoe safaris. When I think about the concept “fight or flight”, immediately what comes to mind is this canoe safari along the Zambezi, where I realized how I respond to moments of possible termination: the deer-in-headlights freeze. These photographs can hint at how close we came to [...]
