thevmilko I gave myself an extra hour of sleep after working for @baltimoresun. When I woke up I was so happy to see one of my latest pieces for @washingtonpost on stands. Such a pleasure photographing for Kids Post-- a section I've been reading since I can remember. 2d

thevmilko Woman washing her hair in Myanmar, Jan. 2016 ••• The last week has been shooting, editing, applying for grants and resisting the urge to just burn things to the ground and start from scratch. Grateful for all that the year has already brought my way and the community that supports me here in DC, but itching to get back out into the field. One month until new take-offs and landings. 2w

thevmilko The last few weeks have been full of food photo shoots tucked between my usual documentary/journalism work. I spent yesterday @stickyricedc doing video and stills of their menu and the chefs behind it.. Looking forward to seeing what creative director @sarahillthecool does with it. 4w
