Shot for the story on Akhenaten is finally out in May issue of the magazine, link in profile. Akhenaten, the pharaoh that ruled Egypt in 1300 BC and in his reign enforced worshiping of one god is considered the first revolutionary in human history. In order to establish new religious practices and fully abandon the old, Akhenaten moved his capital far into the desert, south of Minya. Mamdouh Abu Kelwa sails his felucca past the unfinished, pyramid-shaped, Aten Museum in Minya. Akhenaten needed only five years to build a new capital; the 25-acre museum complex has taken more than twice as long because of political and economic instability. Since the museum project began, Egypt has undergone a revolution and a coup, and two former presidents have been put on trial. creative

Current events in America take me back to the story I photographed for trailing Mahatma Gandhi's legacy in India. To this day, Gandhi's passive resistance campaigns continue to inspire non-violent protest movements both in his home country and around the world. Women walked the streets of Kodaikanal, wearing Khadi, traditional cotton dress. It was a peaceful procession to commemorate Gandhi's work towards gender equality. Tamil Nadu, India. creative

A week into A.A. Gill's passing, I can't stop thinking about him, our most amazing first story in Congo DRC, the most tragic and poignant moments we shared and the crazy laughs we had. The day he insisted we wake up at 5 a.m. to go photograph the church service and I was grumpy and complained a lot, but took one of my best photographs that morning, of this woman by the window. Everyone loved Adrian on that trip. A group of women from Dungu made a doll for him from scraps of fabric. It was so large, almost a life sized child, when the women made the doll, they realized they needed to stuff it with something to give it volume. They had nothing, so they stuffed it with their own clothes. As a result, the doll had a very realistic human smell. Adrian put the doll in his suitcase and it took up all the space: "We are smuggling a child out of Congo!" - he exclaimed. I miss him very much, one of the funniest people I've ever been on the road with, his non-PC sense of humor, his kindness, spontaneity and thirst for adventure. I will treasure the memories of the few trips we had, we plotted more, but his cancer got there first and took him away so swiftly. RIP A.A. Gill you are missed by so many!
