Living in Paris since 1980, I was a freelance newspaper photographer providing
portraits for the IHT, Liberation, and Le Monde. Starting as a stringer
for Reuters in late 1986, I was made staff in 1987 working as both photojournalist
and night photo editor. Major assignments have included five Olympics,
the soccer World Cup in France and South Korea, Euro 2000 and 2004, and
the Cannes Film Festival.
two Gulf War portfolios cover the period from late January until early
April in 2003 when I was based in Bahrain, working aboard six different
ships operating in the Gulf. I was part of the Pentagon's embedded media
assigned to the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier group leading up
to the Iraq war.
