Description A young Miskito boy playfully shows off with a small native chicken on his head in Krin Krin, Nicaragua, located on the Rio Coco. Residents along the Rio Coco were considered Contra allies during the war, and were forced to evacuate in masses when their crops and homes were burned by Sandinista government military. After they were allowed to return, Hurricane Mitch hit them in 1998, which flooded the river to around 30 feet above normal. Residents continue to struggle to make a livelihood. This photograph was taken during a medical relief visit to the town of Krin Krin (signed print).

"Greetings! As a climber, diver, adventurer, photographer, storyteller, I feel passionately about my vocation and I want my images out in the world! This particular set is some of my favorites from my travels around the globe and nothing makes me happier than sharing the excitement I experienced when pressing the shutter. Thanks to technology you can experience this excitement by visiting this website, or for an offline experience, purchasing a print. I am well aware that in the fine art world, traditional galleries price many people out of the market. Indeed, if I were to offer the images on this site via a brick and mortar gallery, they would easily sell for $1000 - $3000 depending on size and framing. Thanks to my partnership with ImageKind, I am able set my own markup - which I have endeavored to keep as low as possible so that you can afford to enjoy my photography on your walls.
Prints are available in a range of sizes from approximately 10 to 48 inches on the long side, and are available on both photographic paper and canvas, framed or unframed. I am slowly rolling out this service, so if you see an image on my website or blog, but don’t see it in the storefront, please drop me an email and I will add it to the site for sale." — Jonathan Kingston
