Okinawa City, August 2016

I study in Tokyo as a graduate student at The University of Tokyo. I research and document Japanese society and its relationship to war and the past. In 2018, I graduated from Columbia University with Honors in History. My writing and photos have been published by Newsweek Japan, The Diplomat, Yahoo News Japan, and other publications.  I recently completed an internship in Magnum Photos in the the Tokyo office.
