I am a cinematographer working originally in New York and later in Los Angeles primarily on feature films, commercials and episodic television but with a good deal of experience in documentary and independent films as well. I began coming to Vietnam in 1990 to shoot the feature documentary From Hollywood To Hanoi and returned a number of times in the decade following on other non-fiction and narrative films (among them the Sundance Film Festival award-winning feature Three Seasons) and for several personal projects as well.
In 2007-08 I became a Fulbright Research Fellow, receiving a grant funding my proposal to photograph contemporary youth culture in Vietnam called State of Youth. The portfolios on this site are a reflection of the work I have done since.
I continue to work shooting films and photographs in Southeast Asia.
The series When Evening Comes was published online at burn magazine in May 2010 – and is also featured along with numerous other works at culturehall . A selection of the portfolio was exhibited at The Bui Gallery in Hanoi, February 2010.
The portfolio called The Long Bien Picture Show was originally part of a larger project I produced and curated in Hanoi funded by The British Council in mid-2010 featuring the work of four photographers and four filmmakers working independently in the same area during the same three month period. A clip of the original outdoor projected exhibition in Hanoi in December can be seen here and the entire exhibition viewed here .
60 Places To Stand was published online at Invisible Ph t grapher Asia in March 2012 and exhibited at Japan Foundation, Hanoi in March-April 2012 in a joint exhibition with Nguyen Trinh Thi called Jo Ha Kyu.
The Desiring Garden is part of the Noorderlicht International Photofestival 2012 in Netherlands – Terra Cognita September-October. The work will also be presented in a solo exhibition in Bangkok, Thailand November-December 2012.
