Portraits From Parts of Africa and The Middle East

Photo Essay #2...A Series of Portraits From Parts of Africa and The Middle East. (Now in Stories)

This really is a true PHOTO essay. There are not many words to back it up.

It is simply a compilation of portraits that I made during two extensive trips in 1975 and 1978 to various parts of Africa and the Middle East.

Years later, many of my photographs from these expiditions were shown at The Wagner Rosenbaum Gallery during 'Contact', the Toronto International Photography Festival. The festival has grown to be the largest in North America, if not the World.

More information about the festival is available at

    A fantastic collage of humanity. Each is an individual study, and a jewel.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this is a true story on humanity as you have captured it. WONDERFUL!
