One of the joys of covering South East Asia is there is always something happening. After spending weeks in India for another assignment, I got to head over to Nepal for coverage of the upcoming elections for the New York Times. While two weeks turned into three, it was worth it.

Shiho spent a few weeks covering the surge in breast cancer for Bloomberg Markets. You can see more and read the full story here.
Behind the scenes seems to be my thing lately. It’s quite enjoyable getting to see how something comes together. Recently I shot a piece for the Wall Street Journal as the exhibit “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” was installed at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. I’m not much of a fashionista but even still the work is quite brilliant. I would check it out before it leaves in February. You can see more at here on WSJ.
Please watch the trailer to Shiho’s new film “Japan’s Disposable Workers.” The film will be premiered at the Pulitzer Center’s Film Festival on September 20th. Shiho will be gave an talk after the second screening on September 24th to a crowd of a few hundred who go to see the full film for the first time. Keep watching this space for the full launch of the film in the coming days.
Quirky stories seem to find us lately. Keith shot a pretty interesting piece for the Wall Street Journal on real estate for the afterlife. With Grecian columns and leaded-glass windows imported from Poland, Arthur Allan’s future New York home is a welcoming and luxurious space. But he doesn’t want to move in anytime soon—it is his private mausoleum.
