Gary Marlon Suson

 

9/11 photographer Gary Marlon Suson lives in New York City. On September 11, 2001, his life, just as all American’s lives, was turned upside down by the attacks on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon. Initially, after photographing the Towers’ collapse from his rooftop, Suson returned to his studio, deciding he wasn’t going to shoot anything else having to do with this tragedy. He didn’t want the stress of being in the midst of the chaos taking pictures, and especially didn’t wish to be wrongly viewed as someone trying to exploit a situation. Read more

Rick Steves

Travel is freedom… one of the last great sources of legal adventure. Rick Steves, host of public television’s “Rick Steves’ Europe” and author of over 50 travel books on Europe says that affording travel is a matter of priorities. You can travel simply, safely, and comfortably anywhere in Europe for $100 a day plus transportation costs. A tight budget forces you to travel close to the ground, meeting and communicating with the people. Never sacrifice sleep, nutrition, safety, or cleanliness in the name of budget; simply enjoy the local-style alternatives to expensive hotels and restaurants. In addition to his public television show and pledge events, Rick also hosts a weekly radio show “Travel with Rick Steves,” a fun, hour-long, and practical talk show with guest experts and calls and questions from travelers (check your local listings).
