Pesach at the ER…one mans idiotic exodus into the American Medical System.

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. Signing autographs as Bruce Willis to drunken…

In the news….and a boutique hotel.

Recently, one of my images from Stonehenge was purchased and installed in a room in the new Ace Hotel in London.  And, just this week, my photography class was featured in an article in an Australian newspaper. The reporter wanted to learn techniques to make better photographs while being a tourist. Here is the link From…

Bike Kill of Brooklyn

“TAKE a dash of “Mad Max,” add a pinch of “Jackass,” sprinkle both over a wet batter of art students, bicycle messengers, anarchist welders and militant anti-globalist vegans, then let the mixture bake for, say, a decade in the oven of Brooklyn, and the resulting dish should taste a little like the Black Label Bike…

Detroit’s Palmer Park: Where ghosts of past and present collide

Sven Gustafason and I did a story for HOUR Magazine on one of the largest and most historical public parks in Detroit and its current iteration and  rebirth.  Here is a post with more photos and an updated and more in-depth version of  Sven’s story. Sven Gustafason To me, there might be no better microcosm for the Detroit experience…

Cloudy nights.

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…

Winter walk in Waters, Michigan.

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…

Harlem, USA!

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.

Rapper Sean Forbes, for HOUR Detroit Magazine.

  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.  The rapper, who is represented by the same management team as Eminem, is 100% deaf.  He grew up in a family of musicians in Detroit and has carved…

Niagara Falls and The moistures

On the way back from Detroit I stopped off at Niagara Falls. As always, they were breathtaking. And then, a photographic phenomena which rarely reveals itself ensued. Photographing the moisture in the air. Cosmically lovely if I do say so myself.

Film images from J’ouvert festival with the HOLGA

The J’ouvert festival recently unloaded itself unto our weary Brooklyn and it now stands firmly, surely, as my favorite annual cultural event.  Starting at 3am, its hypnotic, rhythmic procession of steel drums and motor oil covered revelers snake their way down Flatbush to Empire then head East.  I realized, while standing in the middle of the street drinking…

Manhattan in the dark, Oct.31st.

Photographing in the darkened city of Lower Manhattan was one of the most exhilarating experiences in my 8 years in NYC.  It started as I made it half way across the Brooklyn Bridge around 10pm and had a great vantage point to take in the view of the city with a pitch black foreground and lighted city…
