PDN article on me in Sept 2014 issue :)

HI! Here’s a nice article PDN Magazine did on me for the September 2014 issue. The article talks about how real the struggle is and how I took a photo essay idea and pitched it and photographed it around the country for my dream magazine client/photo editor heroes. I still can’t believe this all happened.

READ IT!

Hi Everyone!
I had an amazing project come out today for the New York Times Magazine! I began this personal project around 3 months ago and pitched it to the NYTM after making 3 photos for the project when it was picked up. I got to travel around the country to 8 states and 14 cities for the project. I was an amazing experience and couldn’t be happier that it was for my dream client. I got to work with some amazing photo editors: Amy Kellner, Kathy Ryan and Christine Walsh for the piece. It went live online this morning and will come out in print on Sunday! It began as a photo essay with deep captions and quickly grew to be the cover story. See all the photos online with the article written by Adam Davidson of NPR and interviews by Taffy Brodesser-Akner as well as audio interviews with a few of the people.

New Project !

Here’s a preview for a new project with a new friend, Rishi Kumar, from my hometown of Diamond Bar. He’s a sustainable suburban farmer/educator who’s turned every usable foot of yard-space at his suburban home into food growing space, where they produce food year round. Rishi has also been working with the nearby Pomona Unified School District where he’s helping to build gardens at some of the schools and always working on grant proposals for more. 

Here’s a few photos from his home and two garden work days at the local elementary schools.
