Multimedia: Lumen Dei participant, Martin & Alik Sojka

Here is more work by participants from the Ladakh Lumen Dei workshop. Today’s works is by Martin & Alik Sojka. The Martins are from Slovakia, and are very talented photographers. (Martin also brews a mean bottle of Hruškovica. A home brew made of peaches that will knock your socks off! It is good for what ales you: dysentery, headaches, fever, altitude sickness, fear of flying. Basically, every aliment known to mankind will all be cured with just a shot of Hruškovica. I would take it now, but I am afraid it might kill me.)

Enough of this. This post is to highlight the Martin’s photography and their Soundslide show. Their presentation is a look at the nomads of Tsomoriri. So…without further ado, may I ask you to view the show below.

In other news, I will be traveling on Sunday to England. On the way there I have a few hours layover in Bangkok. Gavin Gough and Marco Ryan were already meeting up and they managed to squeeze me in for a coffee at the airport. (A coffee my doctor will not even let me drink!) It will be great to see each of these guys, even if it means drinking Mylanta as they quaff…whatever they will be drinking.

My buddies at Think Tank Photo have announced a load of new goodies and now have a great way to find them. As if their website wasn’t tempting enought, they have released a super slick online catalog you can scroll through. It is sweet! (I keep having to wipe the drool from my keyboard) You can download and save it as a PDF or view it online HERE.

As you know, Think Tank Photo has been sponsors of mine for many years. I love them. Their product is some of the best out there, if not the best. They are my go-to bag system. Apparently feel I have something to say as well. I am honored to say that Think Thanks Photo has asked me to join their Design Board. I am flattered to be serving with some heavy hitters like David Alan Harvey, Ed Kashi and our old friend David duChemin. Thank you Think Tank.

    Congrats on the Think Tank connection, Matt. Well-deserved given the types of travel you do with your equipment – and what you produce with it. I enjoyed Martin’s Soundslide show, too. I particularly liked the image at 1:01 of the woman’s hands washing a dish. The contrast of the bracelets and nail polish with work-worn hands at work in a little creek really caught my eye, especially with the water droplets captured.

    Enjoy the travels, esp with the stop-over in Bangkok. See you in a few days!
