Heading into our second anniversary this year, we did a little check on who our audiences were. The top IPA audience countries, in no particular order, include…
It’s about an hour ride from Saigon to Ben San, one of several leprosy centers in Vietnam. On the way, I chat with Dr. Hai, the current director of the center, and learn an interesting fact.
Thaipusam is known as a very enigmatic festival – mysterious and frenzied. And from the few images I had seen, Thaipusam looked like a pilgrimage of a bygone era.
One of my ongoing personal projects is named ZOO. The project is simply doing Street Photography within the confines of a Zoo. It started off when I visited Arashiyama Zoo in Hokkaido

I don’t understand the codes here. I moved to Europe in December 2009. Changing from one culture to another has produced much excitement and shock.
I threw myself into an adventure of searching. I spent a lot of time with the Vietnamese immigrants, who live in Siem Reap and asked them to tell their stories about our native land.
I like traveling and one of the things I enjoy doing when I travel is to wander around (sometimes aimlessly) and shoot whatever catches my eyes. During my visit to Japan about 2 months ago, I used the Fuji X10 as my walkabout camera.
