Yoko K. Sen for STAT News

Yoko K. Sen is a sound alchemist and the founder of Sen Sound. After spending significant time in the hospital due to illness, where she was bombarded constantly with sounds, beeps and noise, she has embarked on a mission to redesign the soundscape that patients experience in the hospital. STAT News did this story on her and asked me to make portraits of Yoko and capture her creative process.

Scotland - The Highlands, Caledonian Canal and Hebrides with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions

Almost 200 years ago, engineers built The Caledonian Canal, a man-made canal that connects five natural lakes and spans Scotland from Inverness (in the east), to Corpach (in the west). Sailing the canal offers a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Scottish Highlands. And on the west coast, the mouth of the canal offers access to some of the the Inner Hebridean Islands. For three weeks, I traveled on a small ship, Lord of the Glens, and traversed this area to explore the landscape, culture and history. Our journey ultimately ended in Edinburgh with a chance to see its amazing architecture and witness the annual Military Tattoo. Here are a few images that I made along the way.

The Mekong River with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions

Life along the Mekong River is fascinating. For three weeks, I traveled from Siem Reap, Cambodia to My Tho, Vietnam aboard The Jahan with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions. Each day, I visited small local villages and communities to learn about the region's storied past, explore the vast landscape and experience unique cultural aspects. A few highlights include - riding through the countryside in an ox cart, learning how to make rice paper and rattan mats, buying local fish and produce from a floating market and sampling the wondrous amounts of fresh food. A few images chronicling the journey are below.

Washington, D.C. Skyline Panorama

Washingtonian commissioned me to make skyline images of Washington, D.C. for a feature titled, "Our Favorite Places." I obtained access to a unique high vantage point and made this panorama by stitching together 15 vertical images. At 300 DPI, the image could be printed at over 33 feet in length.

Veterans Visit Washington, D.C. Memorials for Washingtonian

Every year, thousands of U.S. veterans visit Washington, D.C. to experience the memorials dedicated their sacrifice and service. The veterans are part of Honor Flight Network, a non-profit organization that was established to help bring vets to the nation's capital. Honor Flight pays for travel costs and logistical support on the ground. To enhance the veterans' visit, re-enactors from Allied Airmen's Preservation Society volunteer throughout the year and welcome the vets with open arms and sometimes a big smooch.
