For nearly 30 years, Marklin has created images that offer a photographic travelogue that studies people and places off the beaten path. Marklin’s work as a photojournalist has led him to explore the rugged terrain of South America, the isolated heights of Tibet, and the varied cultures of Southeast Asia. He also has photographed landscapes in more than 70 countries, including China, Russia, Cuba and Haiti.


Marklin’s lecture will include images from Tibet, Cuba, Myanmar, Vietnam and India. Additionally, Marklin will discuss immigration protocols, packing tips, how best to negotiate with pirates, and more.
