Week in Pictures: Hockey battles on ice, Chinese Cultural Fair

In unusually warm temperatures, two hockey games are played at TD Ameritrade Park; the Chinese Cultural Fair educates at UNMC’s Durham Research Center; and we follow a woman as she goes through and recovers from bariatric surgery in the World-Herald Week in Pictures: Feb. 4-10, 2013.

About Chris Machian

I was born in Omaha, graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a journalism degree in 2004 and have spent most of my life here. I was a photo intern with the Omaha World-Herald in 2003 and had various roles with the company before becoming a staff photographer. I love to shoot UNO hockey and last year placed video and still cameras inside the goal to provide our readers with another unique perspective. My goal is to use available technology in ways that help our readers understand the stories we cover. For instance, in 2011 I used Gigapan technology to provide a wide view of flooded areas while allowing users to zoom in on the smaller details. My love of this job extends beyond disasters and sporting events; I also enjoy covering the events that help define Omaha's cultural landscape.
