An early photoblogger in NYC, Rion Nakaya posted daily photos on Rion.nu from 2000 to mid-2011. From street photos to personal shots taken in cities around the world – including daily life in NYC, Paris, London, and Tokyo – more than 6,500 photos were posted on this site during that time.
A few shots were also in Gawker, Gothamist, Gulf Air Magazine, The Morning News, New York Metro, The New York Sun, The Tate Modern, and The Village Voice.
At work, Rion has produced educational videos for kids at DIY.org, and has mixed brand strategy with UX design as the Design Director for 20x200. She's also led both print and interactive projects for museums, non-profits, Fortune 100 clients, and startups.
Rion loves storytelling, sustainable tech, well-designed spaces, and wandering the halls of small science museums. In 2011, she started The Kid Should See This, an educational resource for finding conversation-starting videos about science, art, nature, tech, music, and more.
