The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens had their Cherry Blossom Festival last weekend and the Cosplay (costume play) that transpired was much more vibrant and colorful than the trees themselves (they actually have yet to bloom). I wandered around in jaw dropped amazement at this sub-cultures breadth and was shocked to see how its practitioners sat so comfortable in what seemed to … Continue reading Sakura Matsuri in Brooklyn: Where cherry blossoms, Cosplay, Autism and acne finally intersect.
Passover on Monday night was pretty incredible. Intimate gathering of 10 people lead by an ex-Chasid turned globetrotting DJ, great crowd, raucous singing, bottomless wine, delicious food, topped off by a tipsy daredevil bike ride with an old Jackson Hole snowboarding buddy in for the weekend and $1 slices.

I am not going to go as far as to pronounce these “Equivalents” as the great Alfred Stieglitz did in 1925, equating different cloud shapes with different human emotions (see video below). But since college I have been shooting them and as we all know, there is something epic and transcendental about them. For me, they always seem to bring about feelings … Continue reading Cloudy nights.
Now that summer has arrived and we are at a nice, comfortable remove from winters chilly embrace, its seems to be a good time to reflect on its beauty. I shot these images last winter over New Years weekend. Our family cabin, in Waters, Michigan, about 3.5 hours North of Detroit, is a nice A-Frame … Continue reading Winter walk in Waters, Michigan.
Popped up out of the subway the other day at 125th.street in Harlem and was assaulted by so much amazing culture. Incredible up there. Going back with film. Continue reading Harlem, USA!
I recently had an assignment from HOUR Detroit Magazine to photograph an up and coming rapper from Detroit while he performed a concert here in NYC.
