We found ourselves on a very rainy Tuesday, drunk in the depths of fluorescent lit and vice fueled Shinjuku district of Tokyo. We were coming off the high of a spectacular show at Robot Restaurant, recommended by none other than Sir Tony himself. The 200 microbars of Golden Gai were as enigmatic as they were […]

Shooting in black and white is a rarity, especially with digital cameras. It is usually something we think of in postproduction. But black and white photographs require a certain composition that we wanted to experiment with. We challenged ourselves to shoot only black and white photos in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the capital of Vietnam. […]

Often timid, always tender, Burmese people exude honesty in the face of changing politics. Proud and loyal, but sincerely critical, they are the first to know Myanmar is on the brink of something great. Traditional face paint marks the cheeks of the majority of Burmese. What looks like war paint is actually a beauty product, […]

Asian food. My most “Seamlessed” cuisine back home. I really love the stuff and looked forward to finally experiencing authentic dishes during my time in Asia. I had no idea what to expect of the food in Myanmar—the flavors, the preferred protein, the cooking methods—I knew nothing at all! On our first day in Myanmar, we […]
