And, in case you were wondering:
Jerry, a member of OnAsia Images in Bangkok, has nearly 20 years of professional photojournalism experience. He began his career as a staff photographer at newspapers in the American West at a time when papers still had darkrooms and photographers still processed their own film. In 1998, he and Karen moved to Cambodia where Jerry shot news, features and investigative stories for Agence France-Presse, The New York Times, The Cambodia Daily and other publications. They have since collaborated on numerous projects examining under-reported stories across Asia and beyond, with particular focus on food, environment, health and social issues. For the past six years, the two documented the widespread effects of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in Laos. Their book, Eternal Harvest: The Legacy of American Bombs in Laos, will be published by ThingsAsian Press in late 2011.
Jerry holds a degree in journalism from The University of Montana. His work has won awards from many journalism and arts organizations, including the Fund for Investigative Journalism, Center—Review Santa Fe, and the National Press Photographers Association. Jerry’s images appear in publications including The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, Geo, Der Spiegel, Sierra, Archaeology and many others. His work has been exhibited at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Cambodia and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and several of his photos are part of the permanent collection at the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan.
When not working abroad, he crashes bikes in New Mexico.
