Welcome onboard – Pehr Karlsson of Organo Gold

We want to welcome Pehr Karlsson of Organo Gold who has  jumped on board as a very generous fiscal sponsor. I met Pehr in May in the beautiful Swedish village of Jät while I was shooting a story on Mid-Summer for the New York Times. I needed to file an image for a Newsweek cover – very urgently and did not expect to find even a slow connection in this sleepy farming village. Pehr said I could use the wifi at his farm house – it is to this day the fastest internet connection I have ever used  – the huge file needed for the Newsweek cover blasted down the wire in nano-seconds. Pehr saved the day ! Pehr is a distributor for Organo Gold and travels the globe in the process. Organo Gold produces a line health products including coffee, tea and hot chocolate with ‘Ganoderma’ –  a fungus that has been tested for potential therapeutic benefits including :
