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…

Bikers of Detroit

One night while photographing the area around Palmer Park for another story I spotted a huge gathering of motorcyclists congregating in a bowling alley off of Woodward. It was a weird amalgamation of bicyclists, hip-hop chicks, video productions and bad ass bikers. Lots of burning rubber, big booties and attitude. Hung out a bit. Listen…

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…

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…

Amish do Philip Glass

We needed a  “Get the Hell out of NYC” trip the other day so we headed to Amish country for an overnight and, praise be the lord,  stumbled upon an antique auction.  These events are an amazing dose of Americana..the people, the stuff, the sounds.  And if you are a junker like me, its the…

Blessing of the Car ceremony in the Southern Andes.

Proud owner of a newly blessed car. In my last trip to Peru I stumbled upon a ceremony where people came to have their vehicles blessed by a priest in the parking lot of a 200 year old church.  The priest from the church was going car to car and showering cars, people, engines, tires…

More recent images from Peru.

Here is some film images from my recent three week trip to Peru.  These are all from Peru’s capital city of Lima.  Pizarro founded the city in 1535 in the valleys of three conjoined rivers, hence the overcast and smoggy air quality as the surrounding desert mountains don’t let the air circulate out to the…

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…

M-52 at 65 mph w/ the G9 & fall colors

Coming back from a friend’s wedding in Cadillac, Michigan last weekend I decided to take some country roads.  After a look at the map and an hour of winding shite, I found M-52 and it was perfect.  The trees were blazing with fall color and farms ran along both sides of the road which yielded…

“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.

Road trip to the South of Peru

Fiorella nailed this just 80km from Lima.  Part of a roadside billboard. For Christmas and New Years I ventured, along with my lady, to the Southern regions of Peru.  As a lover of road-trips I pushed for using the car and taking our time.  We seemed to enter a new eco-system every day..desert, dunes, coastal…
