Krissy Sauter, from Claremont, Calif., is a graduate of the University of Arizona School of Journalism. Ever since graduation, Sauter has spent a majority of her time teaching and traveling to far exotic places like New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Belize, Uruguay, and Argentina. Along the way, Sauter returned and refined her photographic eye that she spent four years developing while in school in Tucson.
The California native recently made a trip to Hong Kong just in time for all the preparations and decorations to go up for China's big day on Feb. 14, when the Year of the Tiger begins.
Sauter is now back in California, working on her photojournalism career. To see more of Sauter's work, visit her blog here.
