Later in the evening, @planetbajah played "War Don Done," a joyful celebration layered over wounds, a ballad about Sierra Leone. One war ended, others begun, war never don done.
And yet, we move and we listen and we get up and do it again.

The feeling of being in motion or about to move doesn't stop for awhile after I get home from intense travel. From full throttle to full stop jolts body and soul and home. But desk is clean with new visuals up on the wall, editing is underway.

Ecuadorian tuna for the lunch win.

NEW YORK CITY! Please join @annavanlenten and me at @halfkingphoto TONIGHT AT 7 PM for a conversation about "Diagram of the Heart." Honored to be speaking at Tim Hetherington's home away from home, as his work had such a profound impact on my own. Wish he could join us.
@Redhookeditions will be out in full force too with works by @JasonEskenazi @carlosjavierortiz @pvanagtmael & @lisettepoole

Huge thanks to @glossnewyork for the very beautiful prints!!

In one picture of an orange, Tim Hetherington told so much of the story of the Liberian civil war. His images taught me that there was an entire continuum of nontraditional image making, and that fundamentally changed the course of my work.

I'm honored tonight to be speaking at @halfkingphoto, Tim's home away from home.

Wish he could join us. RIP.

Morning on my balcony in Monrovia, Liberia. Reading and looking through Tim Hetherington's "Long Story Bit by Bit." Such deep and important work that I am happy to be learning from yet again. Last week, I meet a former female combatant who remembered Tim and spoke of him with kindness and respect. I wonder what he'd think of Liberia today. As I look through his book, I'm reminded of all the things that development dollars and half-hearted reconciliation attempts haven't managed to change.

Double trouble, redux, Brooklyn edition.

Ecuador, you are very lovely and your food is delicious. Peace out✌️ Exit music: The XX, I see you.

Another night, another hotel. #onassignment

I'd like all my fruit from a guy with a rainbow umbrella in the middle of the street. Seen from my morning run, on assignment for @nytmag
