Our article on Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford's Immerse Through Cooking Class appears in today's Wall Street Journal Asia Weekend Edition ( A slide show appears in an accompanied tab). We attended the first class which was held in Chiang Mai and Fang in February.
It was a fantastic experience and a real treat to be able to 'hang out' with two of my heroes in the photo world.
Thanks to Naomi and Jeff for their generosity, and support and to the participants who put up with my camera during week. For more on the class go here .
Hsin Chu, Taiwan. One of the cooler cities I've been to in awhile. It's a great combination of public space, historic buildings, and pleasant people ( and, oh yeah food ).
Hsin Chu has a lively hip hop culture centered in and around the East Gate. Groups and individuals congregate in this area setting up boom boxes (even a laying down a little Rufus Thomas ! ) and workin'their moves.
