“I saw a fair share of cats roaming around neighborhoods in Tokyo, but none with more of a personality than this one I spotted stalking me in Aoyama Cemetery. I wasn’t aware until long after my run in with this effective graveyardguard that photographing head stones is taboo—with some pretty heavy superstition surrounding what can happen to those who do.”
“When I moved to Oregon I had only ever been to one waterfall in the state and it had a pretzel stand at the bottom. I was dying to get out of the city so I met up with Luke—a bighaired photographer I had only met once before. We drove two hours out east alongside the Columbia River Gorge and got to a good stopping point right as the sun was setting. We climbed sections of the cliffs that would allow it and took photos until it was dark. He’s now one of my closest friends.”
