Newport Folk Festival 2005



--The lineup this year isn't enough to woo me up there again, but 2005 was pretty darn fun, with M Ward(pictured here w/ Jim James), Bright eyes, Elvis Costello.

Car Window Series,


Taking pictures out of the passenger window of my car(soon to be replaced by another 20 year old car), Its an interesting framework to the outside world.

Wait, whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

I just saw Fur, an imaginary portrait of Deeyane Arbus, and all I can say is, huh? Its the slickest, silliest movie based on a fragment of DA's life that I could imagine.
And Robert Downey Jr. as a furry man, Okay, sure.
Its not as though I hated it, I just didn't believe or understand where its coming from! And Nicole Kidman just can't play a subversive character, so maybe thats why it was so weird. A confusing array of characters and cast and story. Its kind of like Diane Arbus fan fiction.
And like probably 10 pages of dialogue in the whole thing.

Sideyard, Next to vacant house.

Prince of Peace! . . .work.

I've just picked up one to two bars of wireless from one of the many churches on my block! I haven't had internet at the new place until right now!

I am finished with school, and have to choose what I want to do for the rest of my life.
Should it be photography for myself which is up and down and risky, working for someone which could be unfulfulling, or just go for manual labor?

Its not a matter of choice, since New York=work. Its not as if everyone else in the area can't find work at all. Work is everywhere, thats what the current system is set up for. Everyone who is willing works 8-10 hours , 5 days a week to support themselves and then their families. And if you don't , you're a bum, right?
Its all just too overwhelming, and when you settle for one thing, something else is waiting just to the right of you. Its okay, though, because even as I say I don't have work, I am working pretty consistently with the gallery, being a preparator and photographer to boot, and I've been working at the bakery all throughout college, and continue to still.

I could pick the riskiest thing too, because you only live once, and if you want to, and you can, then do.

Steve Earle



Last night I dreamed I made it to the promised land
I was standing at the gate and I had the key in my hand
Saint Peter said "Come on in boy, you're finally home"
I said "No thank you Pete, I'll just be moving along"


I saw Steve Earle at the Blue Note a couple of weeks ago. He was just incredible. I am particulary obsessive now listening to his albums repeatedly, but I just hung on every word through every song. The best show i've been to in a while. I like the feeling of a small club, kind of like being at an open mic night, but seeing someone who you really admire. Not just some open mic night schmo.
There were a couple of dudes(older dudes, needless to say) who were in the single-ticket-standy-by group who I talked to. They seemed to have the same feeling about the show. it was a really good time(hows that for a great music review?) Oh, and Allison Moorer (his wife) played too.

The World is full of fathers


Graduating soon. I've been taking pictures of stuff that comes naturally more and more. I met this artist, Roger Welch, whose films and pictures are narrative-driven, and its given me ideas. So heres one picture that i took, yesterday. It might kind of a non-sequitor, but thats okay.

ah, summer, i miss thou



going to miami in january is an incredible thing, to feel heat and humidity so extreme in the middle of winter is something i've not experienced before.

But coming home to cold now feels unnatural. Even though this winter hasn't been extreme in comparison with past ones, its still not fun!

pictures of my brother



Now and then.

I pulled out some negatives from 2001, when i shot a lot of tri-x through my nikon, especially of the person i spent the most time with, my brother.

Hes in college now, but I shoot him whenever i can. My impetus for doing so comes from the feeling i get from old snapshots of my family, and how i wish there were infinite amounts of them to dig through. So taking as many as I can now, I want to be able to have lots and lots when I am old.


Steven Pyke has been doing a great series of his son Jack, "mapping the evolution of the human face" its beautiful and sad and they're my favorite examples of this kind of work.

Nicholas Nixon

Rineke Dikstra, who had this series at MoMA at the "Out of Time" exhibit is also worth looking at.

First Posting

I thought I'd post some photos from time to time. Danny Clinch does something called "photo of the minute" where he sends everyone on his email list a single picture thats topical (like he sent one of James Brown after hearing he passed away) or just a cool looking image that doesn't really fit into his portfolio or any specific body of work.
I was always interested in this idea, so this can be my venue for my photos of the minute, interesting pictures, etc.
