Great Escapes Digital Village

File this in the why the f&*% didn’t I get to to this category. today is launching the fourth installment of the travel documentary “Great Escapes Digital Village,” which
will follow Richard Bangs, executive producer and host, on a trip to New Guinea. Great Escapes quietly launched in
June, with a photo documentary of Grover, Colorado (really! Grover, Colorado! Gee.). Bangs, btw, was behind one of my
favorite sites of all time,, which is now defunct.

The current two-month-long expedition, which actually began on Nov. 21, was previewed yesterday and is
now accessible here. The digital photos were captured by Bangs’ team
and the residents themselves.

Bangs, a cofounder of, and his crew were outfitted by HP, a sponsor, with battery-powered cameras and
photo printers, to help tell the story of the people of Long Lebusan, a village on the banks of the Waghi River, their
life in their remote region of the world.
