New York Times Correspondent

This website presents a selection of my stories from three decades as a foreign and national correspondent for The New York Times. For the most part, these are not news stories, but stories that stand on their own as glimpses of people and moments in time.

They are divided into categories: First Look and Encore offer a look at a range of styles and subjects. The rest of the menu is arranged by topic: Cambodia Genocide, War in Chechnya, Asian Tsunami, Los Angeles Inner City, Profiles, and Light Touch. A News category gives a selection of page-one stories.
