I did a photoshoot with the amazing Elena Hmeleva in Paris in October 2021 because I needed some updated professional author photos, and these are some of the results. I was quite uncomfortable at first, but she was a pro and got me to relax and enjoy myself. I especially love how Elena managed to evoke the spirit of Paris in so many of the images.
Over the years, I have had the opporutnity to meet or collaborate with some of my academic and creative heroes, people like: Dan Ariely, Marylin Waring, Joan Wallach Scott, Susan Faludi and Russ Rymer, Thomas Piketty, Freeman Dyson, Susan Neiman, and Annie Finch. I feel so blessed by having all of these wonderful people as mentors in one way or another.
A group of Lithuanian students celebrate their return from a folk dancing festival abroad by dancing through the streets of Vilnius on 8 July 2016. I followed them with my camera and managed to get some amazing shots.
These pages come from the 1972 book by the historian Frederick B. Chary, The Bulgarian Jews and the Final Solution, 1940-1944, published by Pittsburgh University Press.
Chary worked in the Bulgarian archives, and translated several key documents which he included as appendices to his book. Of particular note are the warrants for the deportation of the Jewish populations from the Bulgarian-occupied territories in Macedonia and Greece, signed by the then Minister of Interior, Petar Gabrovski. These are included in Appendix III.
Patrick Chabal passed away on January 16, 2014. Here I post a selection of photos of Patrick and his wife, Farzana, from our time together at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey during the 2006-2007 academic year.
Patrick will be dearly missed by all of his friends and colleagues.
