Ethiopian Coffee Country

In January of 2015 I spent a week photographing  in the Ethiopian coffee regions for Green Mountain Coffee.  Here is a small sampling of the 3000 images I made.  The job called for mostly landscapes (to be used on the boxes of a new product) but I couldn’t help but to capture the workers as well and also show the…

Gentrification in Bushwick for New York Magazine blog, Bedford & Bowery

I did a story on the gentrification going on in Bushwick, Brooklyn for Bedford and Bowery, a new New York Magazine blog a couple of weeks ago.

Drunken cucaracha..

My small glass of a chilean Pinot Noir I had before heading out to the Dwarf for beers and late night food became this young gents liquid coffin.  Mother nature works perfectly and fast down here.  Drop a crumb of bread and you’ll a line of ants feasting on it with-in minutes trailing 8 ft….
