On Assignment with the International New York Times

Last month I had the great opportunity to shoot 2 assignments for the International New York Times – one in Danang and one in Ho Chi Minh City. It was a great experience to work alongside veteran journalist Thomas Fuller.

Here are a few outtakes from both shoots that did not make it into the paper:
