Ernest Hemingway's famous short story, "Big Two-Hearted River" was the subject of this National Geographic story. Though the river in the story was a compilation of several rivers, the Fox River in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan ws the foundation for the story. This was the image we used as the opener for the story, which shows this tiny jewel of a river. Photo 011

One of my first stories for Geographic, I went deep into a remote area of Papua New Guinea. The government was going to turn a pristine, totally unexplored region of rainforest over to logging interests or create a national park. We accomplished a multi-week trek into the area, as well as about a month in the village of Wagu, pictured here in a 45-second exposure, the light from a villagers lantern "painting" the front of each hut as he walked through the frame.
