So saddened to hear about the Boston explosions, I listened to the live reportage for a couple of hours during the day and it's so horrifying I wanted to cry. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the events, condolences to families and friends who've lost their loved ones.

I shot this in 2010 when I first decided to start on my 2nd photobook. Which, of course, went on permanent hiatus because, life. Since I hope to compile the pieces I'm putting out for Motherland Chronicles as a new book now, I figure it'd be apt to add this to the collection.

I'm secretly quite impressed with myself for not posting this for so long, it's one of my favorite shoots, but I guess the process of a difficult selection helped, there were so many beautiful pictures from this set.

Updating from Irvine! (Ironically where this photo was taken.) Touched down yesterday and got to hang out with Toby and my fellow staff from Infinity Seven. Today is gonna be a day of StarCraft awesomeness! Blizzard campus and meeting up with friends I haven't seen in a long while, happiness~

Tomorrow I'm off to Vegas, the day after, back to New York, and on Friday a shoot for Harper's Bazaar Vietnam. Week of non-stop excitement! I'll even get lots of reading time during travel, yayyy.

Finally overcame my jet lag. Now I've gone back to my unhealthy cycle of sleeping at 4am. Blehh.
