The Holy Man of Umananda Island

India: Far from the Worn Path

I headed to Northeast India in April 2017 to get as far from the worn path as possible. Warming up in Assam and Nagaland, I then went to Manipur state to shoot Lai Haraoba festival celebrations. According to government travel advisories, many parts of Manipur are no-go zones. However, I found the Vale of Imphal to be beautiful, safe, and welcoming, as well as the highlight of over two months in India. The Northeast India project will continue.


Documenting Taiwan's Culture

It is a fascinating time to be in Taiwan. The island hasn't been a part of a greater China since 1895. After the Republic of China government lost the civil war to to Mao's communist forces, they retreated to Taiwan and govern to this day. The communist People's Republic of China has never set foot in Taiwan; however, they have threatened to annex Taiwan if it ever declares full independence. Join me as I document every aspect of Taiwanese culture over the course of 12 months.


Japan is always calling to me

And when it does, I tend to answer. Since living in Japan for a year in my twenties and falling in love with the country, I have found myself returning there every year to visit friends and explore new places.
