Okinawa City, August 2016

I am a graduate student at The University of Tokyo in the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, where I study and document Japanese society and its relationship to war and the past. In 2018, I graduated from Columbia University with Honors in History. I recently completed an internship at Magnum Photos in the the Tokyo office and have interned at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and in Esquire Magazine’s Photo Department.
