Pictures from recent editorial and commercial photography assignments around China, Macau, and Hong Kong. Most work involves food, portraiture, or industrial locations.
Earlier this winter, Businessweek commissioned me to muck around a few farms near Jiangmen, China to make pictures for their cover story How Antibiotic-Tainted Seafood From China Ends Up on Your Table. The piece is really about transshipping - a business procedure used to circumvent international import restrictions - but as approached from a food safety angle.
I first met Céline Garnier over a year ago while researching a project involving violin makers (this one). Céline was in the process of moving her practice from her home workshop to a new space in Hong Kong's Sheung Wan district at the time, ruling out the immediate possibility of a workshop portrait, which is what I had in mind. Six months later, she had settled into her new workshop. I had time to work on personal projects then, so stopped by to make a portrait and a few other still images.
Another six months then went by before I came to the realization that Céline and her work were just the sort of subjects I was looking to find for a short documentary film.
