Indonesia: Asmat Tribes of West Papua
West Papua, Asmat Tribes
Launch Gallery - In the jungle terrain on the Western coast of West Papua, Indonesia, live the people of the Asmat tribes. In the dense mangrove forests and bamboo thickets of their coastal homes, they inhabit houses raised on stilts to avoid the mud and mire created by the tides. Due to these tidal changes and the heavy jungle location of their villages, the Asmat people have been largely isolated from the rest of the world. They were a warring people who fought neighboring tribes decked out in elaborate war paint, chanting and whooping from their long war canoes. Their spirit and ancestor worship included the practices of abduction and cannibalism.

Today, Asmat woodcarvings are considered by collectors and scholars to be among the finest of primitive art. These carvings can be seen in the great museums of the world. I feel greatly privileged to have had the opportunity to visit these remote peoples before they become assimilated into the modern world.

Japan: Winter Wildlife
Japan, Winter Wildlife
Launch Gallery - Winter wildlife of Japan is magnificent and abundant. On the northern island of Hokkaido, in Japan's famous "snow country", the stunningly beautiful, rare Japanese cranes dance and display. Gorgeous whooper swans congregate on ice-coated, misty lakes. The world's largest raptor, the Steller's sea eagle, and the smaller white-tailed eagles feed on pack ice. Sika dear, red foxes, flocks of sea ducks, and inspiring scenery make Hokkaido a winter wonderland. In the snow-covered "Japanese Alps" live the extraordinary Japanese macaques, the "snow monkeys". Winter wildlife photography in Japan is, indeed, special and spectacular.

Bhutan
Bhutan
Launch Gallery - Bhutan--frequently referred to as "The Last Shangri-la" or "The Kingdom in the Clouds" or "The Land of the Thunder Dragon"--is a tiny, magical country with unique artistic and cultural traditions. It is the last Mahayana Buddhist Kingdom of the Himalaya. Bhutan's mountains protect sacred temples and ancient, white-washed Dzongs (monasteries), rice fields, and colorful villages untouched by time. The lucky photographer's subjects include red-robed monks, colorful prayer flags and prayer wheels, gracious, traditionally-clothed citizens, and spectacular festivals, which are joyous expressions of Buddhist culture and heritage. No wonder that the motto of this country is "Gross National Happiness"

Myanmar /
Burma
Burma
Launch Gallery - Although Burma has been sealed off from much of the world since World War ll, it appears to be slowly emerging into the developed and modern world community in its new guise as Myanmar. Nevertheless, the traveler remembers the mysterious call of Southeast Asia---the romance of stories of Rangoon and Mandalay. The mystery remains: the temples of Bagan; the gentle, smiling people; the great rivers; the magnificent, golden religious centers. Myanmar (Burma) is open for exploration. Hurry to the adventure.

Where the flying fishes play
And the dawn comes up like thunder
