Red-Eyes #1

Red-Eyes

A member of the Peru Amateur Circus in Indiana--a decades-long tradition and the world's largest circus made entirely of youth performers—displays her injury from the town’s fame in the a case of subconjunctival hemorrhage, broken blood vessels just under the clear surface of the eye that resulted from a spinning act. The condition, though seemingly alarming, is usually not harmful or painful. This was from my very first assignment for National Geographic, shot on slide film with my beloved but long-gone Leica R system, and scanned with the edges of the slide included.

Dave is an American documentary photographer whose devotion to capturing unstaged, real moments is reflected in the diversity, spontaneity, and sincerity of his collections. As a National Geographic Explorer and Nat Geo Magazine photographer, he initiated eclectic stories including the search for a lost Leonardo da Vinci mural, the exploration of a lost city in unexplored jungle in Honduras (chronicled in Douglas Preston's NYT #1 bestselling book The Lost City of the Monkey God), and after recruiting the help of all three American ambassadors stationed in Rome, he was granted the best access any outside photojournalist has ever had to any pope, for his Nat Geo Magazine cover story and book on Pope Francis. He was born in Goshen, Indiana, USA, but grew up on the foothills of Kilimanjaro, and currently lives with his wife in rural south west France.
