Thomas K. Shor is a writer and photographer who was born in Boston and studied comparative religion and literature in Vermont. With an ear for unusual stories, the fortune to attract them, and an eye for detail, he has traveled the planet’s mountainous realms—from the Mayan Highlands of southern Mexico in the midst of insurrection to the mountains of Greece, and more recently, to the Indian Himalayas—to collect, illustrate, and write stories with a uniquely personal character, often having the flavor of fable. Shor has lectured widely on his writings and has had solo exhibits of his photographs in Europe and India. He can often be found in the most obscure locales, immersed in a compelling story touching upon fundamental human themes. Learn more about Thomas’s work by visiting www.ThomasShor.com.
