Timbuktu

A work of almost breathtaking visual beauty that manages to ravish the heart while dazzling the eye simultaneously, neither at the expense of the other.

Videos from Roger's Memorial and from Two of Our Far Flung Correspondents

A tribute to Roger would be incomplete without some moving images. Roger might have modestly blushed at all the fuss of the memorial service in the first two videos, but he would have been delighted at the creativity of the last two videos, made by two of our Far Flung Correspondents.


Here are two videos from the memorial service that took place in April of 2013.


One of the things we love is the amazing range of talents our Far Flung Correspondents bring to the table, from baking to drawing to video and filmmaking. Contributors Kevin B. Lee and Michael Mirasol offer up amazing videos on two films Roger loved.
