In early 1998 I made the decision to leave Hong Kong and the life that I had made for myself to go back home and start fresh, but I couldn’t shake my backpacking past and missed the freedom of travel.

Photography: Nishiki Port & Fishing Boat Invite
I made my 5th trip to the Owase – Minami Ise region this year if my memory serves me well. Took some more portraits of a couple of fishermen and lots more photos that I’m saving for something else. This is one of the busiest months for the fishermen as the local giant Ise shrimp,…

Old Delhi, Khajuraho, and then Allahabad to the Kumbha Mela – the worlds biggest festival and largest gathering of humanity on the planet at one time. 110 million over the whole festival and 40 million on one particular day. Apparently. I’m still not sure what…
