An Extraordinary Time

An Extraordinary Time is a photo column I produced once a week from 2005-2006 and intermittenly after that. It seeks to explain how we got to where we are and how we are shaping our future. An Extraordinary Time identifies our values, and the evolution of those values, through cultural geographic landscapes and ordinary daily events. It addresses the issues of our time and highlights the extraordinary stories behind the everyday scenes we call “life”.
