10/30/12: Photo in the November-December 2012 issue of Orion Magazine
Look for one of my photos from the series Industrial Lands in conjunctions with a wonder story by Trebbe Johnson in the November-December issue of Orion Magazine. The story is not available online without a subscription, but the issue is now on the news stand. Even better, I highly recommend getting an online subscription because of their on-going excellence in journalism about nature.
08/13/12: My project No Place for Your Kind is featured in the New York Times
There is a long piece about my project No Place for Your Kind in today's New York Times Lens Blog. I'm pleased that the article is about my photography as well as the importance of the issue. The hstory of institutionalized violence against Chinese immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries is still little known outside of Chinese-American communities, and I hope that my work will help people of all races learn more about this terrible time in our past.
7/25/12: Having fun with an even newer series called water:dream
I was watering my garden one evening and almost fell asleep in the warm setting sun. As the water glistening between the golden sun and the shadows on my garden, I realized I was both watching a dream and living one. The water droplets, the colors of the garden, the sun shining brightly through the mists - it was all light and shadows, colors and brilliance. I grabbed my camera and set it at the highest shutter speed I could - 1/4000th of a second - and let it do the rest. I could tell by the delays that it struggled to find the right focus and the right exposure, but that was part of the joy. I had no idea what an individual image would look like until I saw it on my computer screen. I love this series because it is both completely unexpected and a culmination of my years of both seeing and looking at things in different perspectives.
7/1/12: New Series: Waterdance
I've just started posting some images from a new series I call Waterdance. Each photo was captured at a shutter speed of 1000th of a second or faster as waves rolled onto various West coast beaches. They show the infinite details that pass in front of our eyes without our ever realizing it. I decided to print these in black-and-white in order to emphasize the intricate shapes and forms. I hope you like them.

6/15/12: Just returned from Review Santa Fe
I was thrilled to be selected to participate in Review Santa Fe this year. This is an amazing event that bring together some of the best photographers working today with some of the nation's top museum and gallery directors, book and magazine publishers, and influential critics and bloggers. I showed my work from my on-going project on Chinese explusions, which I recently renamed to No Place for Your Kind. Several of the people there were very interested in this project, and I hope to have some exciting news about it soon.
