As in many islands in the Caribbean, Grand Turk claims to be the site of Christopher Columbus’s first landing in the new world. Many make this claim just before they begin to tell you how horrible a man he was.
What they often forget to tell you is the natives weren’t alter boys themselves, many were cannibalistic, into self sacrifice, murder rape and were in constant wars.
In those days, everyone was cruel to everyone, regardless of race, creed or national origin.
One of the many cannons still on the island designed to protect the islanders from attack.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
