Damien Maloney was born in 1987 in Waco, Texas, grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. His photos have appeared in Wired, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Wall Street Journal, Billboard, San Francisco Magazine, Stanford Business Magazine, San Francisco Arts Commission, and Slate, among others. Damien is interested in masculinity, color, and being a good person.
Photos taken in the summer of 2013 during two consecutive trips, the first with my dad to the Amalfi Coast of Italy as a father/son trip and the second in search of stories in and around Yangon, Burma with my girlfriend at the time who was working there as a journalist. Through these photos I attempt to highlight the similarities of the two very different places.
