man and cows
Man herding two cows. Romania, 1990

These are the two oldest photos of people at work that I have archived and indexed. As I go back through my old film archive and scan things I’m sure I’ll find more.
The man herding cows was in Romania. I went for a walk in these woods and took a little nap and woke up to the sound of these cows coming at me. I was in Romania for their first free elections in April, 1990.
The woman is in Kuba, Azerbaijan. In 1993 I traveled there to photograph the ancient Jewish community of that region.
I like both of these images because they look timeless.
