The Voyagers

"In the summer of 1977, NASA sent Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 on an epic journey into interstellar space. Each spacecraft carries a golden record album, a massive compilation of images and sounds embodying the best of Planet Earth. According to Carl Sagan, “[t]he spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this bottle into the cosmic ocean says something very hopeful about life on this planet.” While working on the golden record, Sagan met and fell madly in love with his future wife Annie Druyan. The golden record became their love letter to humankind and to each other. In the summer of 2010, I began my own hopeful voyage into the unknown. This film is a love letter to my fellow traveler."

Light The Way

"This is the Lantern Floating Ceremony that I shot on Memorial Day of May 30th, 2011. This is an annual ceremony that happens every year on Memorial Day at Ala Moana Beach Park in Honolulu, Hawaii. It's a beautiful ceremony that brings people together from all over the world, from all types of religion, in one place to remember those that have fallen in conflict, and to reflect and send prayers to loved ones. It is a ceremony that is all about promoting peace. The ceremony is led by Her Holiness Keishu Shinso Ito who is the spiritual head of Shinnyo-en."

Traffic in Frenetic HCMC (Saigon), Vietnam

Having traveled to Saigon three times, I can tell you that the traffic is frenetic all day long. This is the only city in the world that I have traveled to where I gave up trying to cross the street. I heard stories of those who hired a taxi to cross the street. If you come from Saigon, you just walk and hope the motor-bikes will veer away and miss you. Life is cheap in Vietnam.
