For two years, I explored one of world's most dynamic search of cultural history and the politics of divide and area where I was born but had not had the opportunity to really know.

By September of 2007, that exploration had culminated into a documentary, THE SKY BELOW. You can read more about it, as well some articles that featured the film in it's process and completion here:

Many more pictures were taken, and a book is forthcoming.
A limited edition of archival prints is available. Please visit to see what is currently available.
