If you use my photos, I’d love to hear about it — especially if you publish them. Also, if you are looking for more images of a particular type, please contact me. I may have higher resolution and additional images not shared here.

With the loss of sites and travel access to the Middle East, I discovered new value in my research and travel photographs as cultural heritage documents and unique repositories of information. I share these images for the sake of not only of presenting some amazing things and places, but also to provide public resources for future study.

I hope that the many photos I share here of works of art and architecture, objects, sites, cultural traditions, and museum exhibitions near and far will inspire and support research, teaching, learning, and creative endeavors.

Adding photos, old and new, to this site — please bookmark it and check back!
