I sometimes forget how much I enjoy taking photos, and sharing them with people.

(SALEM)  Photography is such a varied art.  There are so many approaches, and endless options when documenting the world visually.

I am primarily a writer, but my media life has never been limited, to say the least. I entered the business hoping to become a jack of all media trades and while I am just one more person doing this, I am pleased with some of the results.

First, I will publish the following photos from Afghanistan, taken during the winter in 2006 and 2007.  They tell many stories, but my real hope is that they help us remember that no people of the world benefit from war.  Afghan people in particular are precious and undeserving of three plus decades of military occupation.  Indeed, it is time to reign in the madness.

tim-iraq-2His years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions;  Tim has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu.

Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label ‘terrorist’ is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel’s destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
