One personal long term project I have worked on for years is about the life of mannequins. Symbols of us frozen in lost identity. Every place on earth has these fascinating facsimiles, and in Istanbul I found these two ladies, walking out the entrance of an apartment in their sleeping clothes. Everywhere is a story in this wonderful city and next month I will be co-teaching a storytelling workshop in Istanbul with @anushbabajanyan. Anush and I have taught many workshops together. These events are therapy. Much more than just photography. Details about our @viiphoto workshop between October 27 thru November 3 is in my Instagram bio. And as always, send @anushbabajanyan or me a message through Instagram if you have any questions. We always answer each message we receive, so don’t be shy. See you soon in Istanbul!

Here sharing a bit more about the Istanbul Storytelling Workshop and this beautiful photograph...the most patient teacher of photography and the subtle nuances in the art of seeing, is Anush Babajanyan. We have co-taught three workshops in recent years. If there is any photographer who can lift from within you, the purpose and being of telling stories with images, it is @anushbabajanyan. A co-member of @viiphoto, I am so happy to be working again with Anush during our upcoming workshop in the city of a million tales. This photograph of hers from Istanbul tells so much, and was in last year’s prestigious Eyes On Main Street exhibition. Details about our @viiphoto workshop between October 27 thru November 3 are in my Instagram bio. You can always send us a message through Instagram if you have any questions. See you soon in Istanbul!

The last time I was in Istanbul was for the @natgeo story, Sacred Water, photographing a baptism within the Greek community. I will be returning to this incredible city between October 27th through November 3rd, cohosting a visual storytelling workshop with my @viiphoto colleague, @anushbabajanyan. Anush and I love to teach and have hosted many workshops together. This is not just a photography event. These are spiritual gatherings of compassionate storytelling. Where we guide you in creating a deep narrative essay ready for publication, the same as we do for National Geographic and many other magazines and newspapers.

Masseuses wash and bath men inside the Çemberlitaş Hamami in Istanbul, Turkey. Built in 1584, this hamam is one of the most important works of 16th century Ottoman architecture.

Those moments of mystical beauty...tonight before going to bed I looked in my phone (a portable archive) while reflecting on Armenia, and this photograph from Dilijan appeared from a few years ago. It was during the first few days of the @bridging.stories project. We were walking about this beautiful mountain village, a place where quality of life exceeds quantity. With us were some of the young photographers we were teaching. That afternoon in 2016, we came upon an abandoned home that was alive with spirits, more beautiful than ever before. A quiet secret to share... part 2 of this project for building peace will begin again soon. Till then, follow @bridging.stories here on Instagram where the 24 alumni continue creating amazing images of understanding and commonality between neighbors. Thank you so much. @viiphoto @natgeocreative #bridgingstories #armenia #dilijan #abandonedhome #kitchen #spirits

There’s something magical about strange random art installations. Especially in India where everything is magical, even a tree festooned in lights by a roadside tire repair shop along a road in Bangalore. @rippleeffectimages @natgeo @viiphoto @natgeocreative #india #bangalore #tree #lights #green #tires #night #magic

Sometimes I wonder if something too simple, like a photograph of a sunrise, is just too simple. Then I remember awaking last week into the beauty of this Perpignan morning, realizing I was wrong. @natgeo @viiphoto @natgeocreative #perpignan #france #perpignan @visapourlimage #sunrise #rooftops #amazing #beautiful

Down under the Brooklyn Bridge this morning, taking a break while hanging the #7ofVII exhibition, one of and if not the most compelling exhibitions I’ve seen - Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity. So important to stop in container #13 and see this group exhibition by the seven female members of @viiphoto at @photoville in DUMBO. #photoville2018 opens tomorrow, September 13, and runs till the 23rd. @viiphoto #viiphoto #dumbo #photoville #7ofVII #photography #exhibition #photoexhibition #fog #brooklynbridge

The most beautiful Saalumarada Thimmaka, 108 years of life. Childless, Thimmaka planted banyan trees as her children, lining the 4 kilometer road into her village near Bengaluru, India. Tomorrow I will share an Instagram Story on this most amazing, spiritual woman, and her trees, some planted when Thimmaka still a child. @rippleeffectimages @natgeo @viiphoto @natgeocreative #india #bengalaru #thimmaka #beauty

If there was one thing that could change the world, it’s education. In Piplantri, India, girls are empowered by a decade long program that supports the environment by planting 111 trees for every girl born, combined with a pledge by families to keep girls in school and not allow their daughters to become child brides. The beautiful thing, it works...I met 9 year-old, Diya, two days ago, eager each day to attend school, doing her classroom work at the secondary school in Piplantri. @rippleeffectimages @natgeo @viiphoto @natgeocreative #india #piplantri #girlseducation #education #school #studying #empowerment #empoweringgirls #womenempowerment

Two mornings ago, Nandu held her baby and did what mothers of newborn girls do in Piplantri... prepare her daughter’s basket for the planting ceremony. After her son spun the cradle, she placed Nisha within, carrying her two month old daughter to the field where she planted the first of 111 trees, making a pledge to keep Nisha in school and not to allow her daughter to be a child bride. In the past many families aborted baby girls, but in the last decade, the Piplantri Program of planting trees to protect girls and the environment has completely ended this practice, bringing empowerment and education for girls, reforesting this rural area of Rajasthan. Piplantri’s model has spread to another 157 other villages in India, who all together have planted millions of trees in the past 10 years, not only enabling many species to return, but also offering hope to girls. @rippleeffectimages @natgeo @viiphoto @natgeocreative #india #piplantri #mother #daughter #babybasket #family #home #empoweringgirls #womenempowerment
