Since May is photo month, I’m featuring some work of Jim Richardson on my blog this week.  Jim Richardson is a photographer for National Geographic Magazine and a contributing editor for its sister publication, ‘Traveler’ magazine. Richardson has photographed more than 30 stories for National Geographic. Richardson’s work takes him around the world, from the tops of volcanic peaks to below the surface of swamps and wetlands.  ABC News Nightline produced a story about the long process of assembling a National Geographic coverage by following Richardson in the field and at National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.
