About the Rambler



Welcome to my ramblings on dinner & drink, people & places, our planet’s health & the future of food. I’m a journalist, author and media trainer. My kitchen forever smells of garlic and curry. And much like my mother, I start thinking of dinner long before breakfast….

Photos

Unless otherwise noted, the photos here are copyrighted and belong to Jerry Redfern. If you would like to order any of the photos you see here for your personal use, by all means do so! Many (though not all) of the images on Ramblingspoon link to a page where you can purchase prints for your personal edification and domestic beautification.

If you are a business, all photos are available for licensed use, at reasonable rates. You can reach Jerry through the contact form to discus. If you are a business and use his photos without permission, he will hunt you down and charge you accordingly. If you are not a business but think you are entitled to free use of his photos, you’re not. Show some manners. Send a message and ask. Unfortunately, circumstances in today’s digital world require a stern tone on these matters.

Now, on a more pleasant note, in case you were wondering about the photographer here:
Jerry has spent more than 20 years as a professional photojournalist. 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, we 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. We have since collaborated on numerous projects examining under-reported stories across Asia and beyond, with particular focus on food, environment, health and human rights. We have spent several years documenting the widespread effects of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in Laos for our book, Eternal Harvest: The Legacy of American Bombs in Laos (ThingsAsian Press, December 2013).

Jerry holds a degree in journalism from the University of Montana. His work has won awards from many journalism and arts organizations, including the Society of Environmental Journalists, 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 FCC Cambodia, The American Center in Yangon, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and many other places. Several of his images 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.
