It's been a while since I've updated my blog! No excuses, but hey, a busy summer wedding season has hit, along with a plethora of great projects I've been getting involved with. Nestled high in the pipeline of commercial work was shooting the jacket cover for the launch of Fan Wu's Beautiful As Yesterday, a young Chinese-American author writing in the likes of the prolific Amy Tan of a generational story between three Chinese women living in America with vastly different ideals. The bold jacket came out great, mainly from the graphic design layout by Laywan Kwan of Simon & Schuster, who is also the model. The front cover was originally shot as a sketch photo taken within the clothing racks of Pearl River Mart in Soho with no intent of using it as the final image. It turned out to be the best shot in comparison to the staged studio images taken afterwards.
