I photograph, record, and write about the natural world. I see, I listen, I write. I fundamentally believe that curiosity can save the world—so I publish stories to make people curious.

    Ixtoluca

    Ixtoluca

    Ixtoluca is the only term I have ever searched for on Google that returned precisely zero hits--that's right, none. The name refers to a structure built by Cortez, south of Mexico City, in the early 16th century, as a place to process silver. Today, it's a little-known ruin that is one of the most spectacular, eerie, and beautiful places I've ever stumbled upon.
