I was recently interviewed about my Prison Fight photographs by JOIA Magazine, a fine art publication out of Chile in South America. I love the layouts and the minimalist designs. It’s always nice to see editors and art directors doing great things with photography. Makes me super happy. So thanks to Alvaro and his team. Keep up the amazing work; I’m honored to be part of the current issue.
Last month I traveled to Mai Chau, in the northern mountains of Vietnam, to shoot Sula Clothing’s new AW2014 collection. I’ve worked with the boutique design house for over two years now, and each shoot is a chance to experiment more and take more chances. Sula remains one of my favorite clients, and I really can’t say enough good things about them. I love their clothes, and Alison, the owner and designer, has always granted me an almost limitless freedom to do what I will on each photoshoot. The images here stood out for me for whatever reasons. For those interested, you can check out the website–and buy Sula’s beautiful boutique designer rags–HERE.
A few months back, I worked on another cover shoot for Cebu Pacific Air, out of the Philippines. The concept was to follow a model through Hanoi for a day and capture her amidst the color and vibrancy of the capital. A simple idea with a lot of room to be creative. My favorite kind of assignment. Here are a few of the final images used in the story. That specific shade of golden yellow in the top photo will forever remind me of northern Vietnam.
A few months back I worked on a story with Mike Ives, a writer for The New York Times, about a Payments for Ecosystems program in the central Vietnam province of Lam Dong. It was a fun few days, and a great story as well. Who doesn’t like riding a motorbike through mountain passes and hills in the cool highlands of Southeast Asia? Read what is absolutely 100% more interesting than anything I could possibly say about the subject here: PES Vietnam.
