Marina Beach in Red Scale

I recently returned from a trip to Chennai, in India, where I visited family and friends. Whenever I visit, I try to go to Marina Beach for some street (or is it beach?) photography. I enjoy shooting film when I’m not working an assignment, and this time I decided to red scale a role of color negative film, and walk the beach with my rangefinder.

Chinatown Politics: Behind The Curtain

In November 2011, more than 160 years after the first Chinese immigrants arrived in San Francisco, voters overwhelmingly elected Ed Lee the city’s first mayor of Chinese descent. The election proved to be a historic milestone for the Chinese-American community. In a city where Chinese were once required to pay a $2.50 monthly tax and William Randolph Hearst’s Examiner newspaper stoked fears of “yellow peril,” five Chinese-American candidates were now running for mayor. This essay looks at the forces and institutions that helped galvanize San Francisco’s Chinese vote, and follows the candidates on the campaign trail, as they vie for the city’s highest office.

More than anything, the San Francisco mayor’s race has showcased the ascendant political power of a growing Chinese population, which now appears likely to produce the city’s first elected Chinese-American mayor.

Lillian Leal said Joshua was in the bedroom when the fire broke out while the two families were barbequeing outside. Tice District firefighters believe the cause was faulty wiring.

She ended her essay, writing “we are sisters. I took it pretty hard.”

Manuel’s Story

In many ways, Manuel is a typical teen. He plays guitar, likes to watch TV, listen to music and hang out with his brother Carlos. However, when asked why he dropped out of high school to work as a day laborer, the 18-year-old shrugs.

“You gotta work,” he says.

Manuel, an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala, works with his brother Carlos as a day laborer to help support his family. Manuel has been living in Southwest Florida since he was 6 years old, attended public schools and says he feels Floridian. Like an undisclosed number of undocumented teens growing up in the US, the only future Manuel says he sees for himself is here in the US.


Manuel works as a flagger on a road construction project in East Fort Myers. His work varies from day to day, ranging from digging ditches, to sweeping, to working in road construction. Manuel dropped out of high-school to work so he could help support his family. This day, his task was to guide traffic through the construction area. "You get used to it," he said of the monotonous job. He worked from 8am till about 5.30pm for $6 an hour.

I just finished reporting a story about the shortage of climbers in Kerala’s coconut industry. The state government is sponsoring a competition to invent a mechanical coconut picker that will solve the labor crisis. A radio version of the story will air on The World, a show co-produced by Public Radio International, WGBH in Boston, and the BBC World Service. I want to write a print piece as well. Know any newspaper or magazine that might be interested? I plan on returning to Kerala to produce a documentary on the subject soon.

UPDATE: The story aired March 3rd, 2010 on The World.
