Zambia: Conservation & Survival
Vincent Van Gogh: Inspired by Light
In Zambia, it is a balancing act constantly threatening to tip.
On one side is survival—food, fuel, home and health. On the other is wildlife—the black rhino—hunted to extinction, 11.7 million people—living on less than a dollar a day, one in six adults who are HIV-positive, and a shamelessly corrupt government.
Aimee Mullins: Life Without Limits
Swirling through life like brush strokes on his canvas, Vincent van Gogh sought pain and beauty in every part of his life. From his love affairs and religion to his painter’s palette, first dark then vibrant, he was a wanderer.
WMD: A World Without Innocents
Aimee Mullins was a year old when she lost her legs to a surgeon’s knife for fear cancer cells might set up deadly housekeeping there.
Tibet: Freedom Denied
Sticks, stones, poison—guns, bombs, gas—nuclear, chemical, biological weapons—it seems mankind is never satisfied with the power of the weapons at hand.
Hawaii: The Power of Tradition
In the future this place will be known only as China.
Tibet—Land of the Snow Leopard, prayer wheels and yak herders—it is being transformed by degrees as the Chinese erase both Tibetan religion and culture first by violence, then “re-education” and finally, mass immigration of Han Chinese.
Some say it is progress, others genocide.
Avian Flu: Panic or Pandemic
The sacred is everywhere—from the ocean to the land to the very breath of every Hawaiian—the ha, breath of life, shared when even strangers touch foreheads and inhale deeply.
Influenza is one of man’s oldest foes, killing over 50 million people world wide in 1918, mutating every season it keeps us alert.
