This section shows photo essays from my visits to China as a tourist, a working photographer, and a student.

Two weeks in Yunnan province, December 2002.
This photo essay shows the beautiful city of Lijiang, a World Heritage Site. I intended to stay for three days, but - charmed - remained for over a week.

Weekend in Chengde, Hebei Province, November 2002.
Not to be confused with the big city of Chengdu! Temple-hopping, trekking, and knocking back local brews.

Walking along the Great Wall of China, October 2002.
Cold but sunny.

Bike ride through Tsinghua University, Beijing.
I studied Mandarin here for five months at the end of 2002.

Operation Smile mission to Linyi.
I spent one week in April 2002 documenting a team of doctors as they repaired the cleft lip and cleft palates of poor children in this city.

A long weekend in Beijing,
September 2001. Some street photography and pictures of Beijing University and Tsinghua University.
