I am a Portland, OR-based journalist and the author of Eve of a Hundred Midnights (William Morrow, 2016), about wartime journalist Melville Jacoby, his romance with and marriage to fellow journalist Annalee Jacoby, and the true story of their island-hopping run for their lives across the Pacific after the Fall of Manila during World War II.
I've recently begun shooting with a vintage Contax II rangefinder, the same camera Mel used as a reporter for Time, Life and other publications in wartime China and the Philippines. Most of the photos here are scans of 35mm negatives shot with that camera. There are also a few DSLR and mobile shots from my travels.
blascher doesn't have any testimonials yet.
