I’m a writer and photo editor with a particular expertise in archival photography. 

As a writer, I've been published in The New York Times and The New Yorker.


As a photo editor, I've scoured archives around the world to track down compelling images, and I've commissioned original photography in cities across the globe. I've worked at titles such as The New York Times, Wallpaper* City Guides, Departures Magazine, Vanity Fair UK, Atlas Obscura, and Penguin Books. 

I'm currently working on a non-fiction book about the boldest, wildest, most intriguing innovations in 19th-century photography, which will be published by W.W. Norton.
