Writer Jonathan Franzen talks about how our National Geographic story, The Last Song, has helped influence the decision by Albania to ban hunting for the next two years. Franzen and I reported on the mass slaughter of migrating birds across the Mediterranean, and the situation in Albania was especially horrible. See the original story here.

Beginning in 2013 some anonymous jokers started taking the winning pictures at the annual Pictures of the Year competition and replacing their subjects with cats. They’ve been posting them to a Tumblr, Twitter feed and Instagram account called poyicats. This year, my second place photo (see original here), originally showing a falcon on the hood of an Egyptian raptor hunter’s car in the Sahara desert, has been cat-ified.
Still Life In Motion: On assignment for The New York Times magazine, i drove over 6,800 kilometers across South America from Sao Paolo, Brazil to Lima, Peru. ALong the way I made these short videos that we are calling “moving post cards”. Check them out online, accompanying our cover story for the Voyages issue titled “Camino Real”
A raptor acts as a radar on the hood of a Egyptian falcon hunter’s truck in the Sahara Desert.

The photography landscape is changing fast. Today I’m psyched to be singled out as one the SQUAREST in the biz.
