Don Geronimo of Santiago Atitlan holds the Bible he got from Father Stan Rother. The price was 7.50 Quetzales, Geronimo paid 4. He said he still owes the priest - who helped him learn to read and write - 3.50 Quetzales "though it's probably much more now," 36 years after the Fr. Rother was murdered here by government mercenaries.

Film travelers, spread the word. A 35mm film can holds 10gr of ground coffee. When you're trapped in your hotel room without spoons but with terrible coffee, now you know. #35mmfilm #coffee #travelersnotebook #filmborn #iphoneonly .

This weekend I saw dozens of tortilla makers in more humble settings but none were as adorable as her.

Haven't processed any film yet, but this is already one of my favorite shots from yesterday. Don Diego's youngest daughter looks on as her father works at countermarch loom in his studio at their home in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. #guatemala #santiagoatitlan #tzutujil .

I'm honored to bring you this episode. (Link in bio) It's the story of "Phillip," a Millenial with Autism, and his dad. Where and how he finds something called "dignity of risk," and what it means to his future.

I don't often repost but I'm so happy for Ambreen and I think what she's doing is beautiful and sorely needed for all kinds of reasons. If you've not, check her IG out. Much love.

One year ago I started a journey of unanticipated success. I set a sequence of events into place that would change my life forever. One year ago I started @BrownPeopleCamping.

Over the course of the past year I have told personal stories, heard even more personal confessions, cried with strangers, laughed with new friends. It’s been empowering but also very challenging. I’ve taken hurtful blows from those who oppose my efforts to shed light on the lack of diversity in the outdoors and the role privilege plays in enabling our access to the outdoors. I’ve put my truth out there and have been met with racism and cruelty, but I have also been defended and consoled by hundreds of passionate allies. I’ve formed ever-lasting bonds with kind people from all over this great country. And now I stand humbled by the fact that I have run out of words to describe my humility.

When I started @BrownPeopleCamping, I had no idea what lay ahead for me. All I wanted was everything. To contribute to the growing movement of promoting diversity and equity in the outdoors, and to change the world. With that daunting goal in mind, I have watched an unreal journey unfold before me that I never imagined for myself. Hundreds of posts later, articles, interviews, panels, phone conversations, meetings, conferences, edits, edits, and more edits. We have arrived, my friends!

It is with great honor and pleasure that I share on my one year-anniversary, @BrownPeopleCamping is partnering with @REI, a company that believes in our mission of promoting diversity and greater access to the outdoors! They have asked me to be a brand ambassador for them in the Washington, DC area to help build a community of diverse outdoors lovers and raise awareness about all the different ways real people like us, with real bodies and budgets and limitations, can love and incorporate the outdoors into our busy lives. .
I am proud to have the support of a company that believes in investing i
