An early May walk in the woods in Connecticut, everything was just starting to bud.

A reminder that the group exhibition MIXED GREENS opens today and the photos will be up through Monday at Plantworks (28 East 4th Street, NYC).
It is part of the Noho Design District organized by Sight Unseen and it features work from photographers Leslie Williamson, Paul Barbera, Laure Joliet, Debbie Carlos and Brian Ferry. Each photographer was invited to revisit past works that happen to feature plants — even if they weren’t originally the main subject of the shot.
There are a lot of fantastic events happening this weekend as part of ICFF and the Noho Design District, so be sure to check out the whole thing if you’re in New York.
(Also – the photos above are available for purchase, and each photo is mounted and framed. Please contact me if you are interested!)
“Mixed Greens” at Plantworks, 28 East 4th St, NYC / Friday May 17 – Monday May 20, 10AM to 6PM; Sunday May 19, 11AM to 5PM.

My very talented friend Kyle Garner has just launched his fantastic new website: sit-read.com.
I’m grateful to have been able to collaborate with Kyle on photographing a few of the interior projects he’s worked on. Above, some photos of Kyle’s studio apartment & gallery/shop space in Wiliamsburg, which was designed and built by Sit & Read in 2010 and photographed by me last year.
