Images of Bangladesh

I've been working hard this week to get a collection of my Bangladesh images ready for sale as stock. Since they are all pretty and ready to go, I thought I'd share them with you all too...

These Bangladeshi people are unloading a barge of sand, basketload by basketload. Every time they dump their basket on top of the growing sandpile they receive a coin from the paymaster. The ambitious ones run back to the barge for their next load. This photo was taken during Ramadan, when Muslims fast from food and water during the day, only eating at night.

This is what it looks like when you open the door of your car in Bangladesh.
This is what it looks like when you open the door of your car in Bangladesh. Everywhere you go it seems that everyone is watching you. In Bangladesh it's true.

Pulse UWO
The gym Pulse will occupy tomorrow.

Today I realized two things that are ironically related. The first is that I haven't written a blog post since January 20th, when I posted about photographing the Pulse Movement event in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin.

The second is that I have arrived. I'm here in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin, photographing the largest student-led movement on an American university campus this year. But more than that, I set out many years ago, trippingly, falteringly, often blindly, to change the shape of Christian media.

Tonight I realize that I have arrived. Not in the sense of completion, or of complacency, but as I look around me tonight, I realize that I am on that leading edge, changing the way Christian ministries handle media.

In the van today I talked with the logistics coordinator for the US branch of the Lausanne Movement, who told me his media dreams for the upcoming conference in Orlando with the statement, "I don't even know if we can do this..." And we are doing it for him.

Tomorrow I will call the Rebelution Tour again to continue working out the details of the media presence for their upcoming tour this summer.

The task is massive. The tools are ever changing. I'm not rich. I'm not even famous. Tonight I am where I want to be, and I am doing what I want to be doing.

Check out what's going on. Follow the event at Pulse tomorrow by tracking the Twitter hash tag #pulseuwo. Look for images of the event on Facebook late tomorrow night or early Sunday morning. Then go do something yourself. The body of Christ isn't all hands and feet, some of us need to be the eyes and ears as well.
