Eric Meola - My Heroes (cont.)

"Equally at home in the most remote and exotic corners of the world as he is in his Manhattan studio, photographer Eric Meola has led two lives in photography. For more than two decades as a commercial shooter, he has created some of the world's most recognizable and striking advertising images. And as one of the world's foremost adventure photographers, he has brought his personal vision to some of the most far-flung locales on earth: Ethiopia, Niger, Papua New Guinea, Burma and Cambodia - sharing with the world places and events rarely witnessed by outsiders."

Some images just burn themselves into your brain, their impact never fades, for me, "Promised Land" (the image above) is one of those images.
