Grant proposal for the N train subway line.

The MTA, the NYC Subway transit authority, has a call for artists to design installations for several stations.  I submitted these images with the concept of taking people on a journey thru Madagascar with a  dynamic, color filled dose of nature, culture and adventure while they hustle along underground.  The images, mostly shot on a point and…

Revisiting some old negatives from India.

  In readying a new site for an organization I am creating I recently scanned some 35mm negatives from my three month trip to India in 2004. I’ve never printed these images. These four are from the time I spent volunteering in West Bengal for ERDS, a non-profit who does a myriad of development work…

Book of my Peru images.

I just made this epic tome of my images from Peru.  I built it as a book dummy and portfolio piece.  Its about 160 pages and is being printed on high quality, Ilford Pearl Lustre paper with archival end pages, an oatmeal colored linen cover with this cool, wrap around cover sheet.  You can view…

Manure in Midtown

The PBR professional bull-riding rodeo is back gracing our shores here in NYC.   I shot it a few years back for the Huffington Post but never got it up here on MPT so here is a link to the full photo-story.  I’ve posted a couple images below along with the text which I penned (something I…

The Brooklyn Museum headless pigeon and his co-hort Hawk 44-A

Was happily startled by this scene the other day walking behind the Brooklyn Museum on the way home.  Distracted by museum detritus in a giant dumpster I looked up and was about 15 ft from this sort of “urban” National Geographic scene.  Was fascinating.  The hawk was pulling the feathers off the neck area of…

New images from recent trip to Peru.

Just returned the other day from my second jaunt to the land of my girlfriend.  Spent 3 weeks, a couple in Lima then a week in the south where my moms and I tackled a day on the famed Inca Trail and then took in Machu Picchu.  Twice in 9 months..never thought that would happen..so…

Cayman in the market…

This little hog-tied pre-historic reptile was in the Belen market in Iquitos.  It was nice to get with-in inches from an animal you would never really get to see let alone study but it was bitter-sweet, as it sucks seeing a beautiful animal waiting to die in such a manner.

“Necessity”, the mother of inventive head injuries.

Jaw dropping differences in safety practices  from the suburban landscapes of the US with this main throughfare in Iquitos, Peru, a Northern jungle town accesible only by air or water, left me safely standing in the middle of an intersection for 2 hours.

The horror….., the horror…..

Bugs.  All sorts of bugs.  I am not sure what specific little bastards ate us raw during the  4 workshops that we conducted in the Amazon but they surely had their way with us.  I only caught it in the neck and back and feet but the rest of the group had a plethora of…
