I’d also like to draw your attention to www.earthisourwitness.com, produced by Parimal Deshpande and hosted by him and the internationally-renowned photographer, Art Wolfe, both from Seattle. This is a series of stimulating conversations with photographers from around the world, selected by Art and centred on some of their images. The series is a work-in-progress; you can view those already filmed and there are more to come. Don’t miss the compelling conversation with Wade Davis, the Canadian anthropologist and photographer, who was explorer-in-residence at National Geographic for several years. (My conversation on SYMBOLS and MEANING will be recorded March 2. View live on http://www.facebook.com/earthisourwitness, on http://www.instagram.com/earthisourwitness, and live or for up to a year on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EARTHISOURWITNESS.)

… to make sure you do not feel alone …
… to make you feel strong …
… to make you happy.

While we’re all cooped up at home, we might want to try some macro photography.
