I recently photographed the inimitable Michael Seidenberg and his “hidden” bookshop on the Upper East Side, called Brazenhead Books, for Aesop’s journal, The Fabulist. See it here: http://www.aesop.com/usa/the-fabulist/brazenhead-books/

Michael is a true gem – a classic NYC character and a very warm & generous host. The current iteration of Brazenhead Books will be closing in a few months, sadly (he’s being evicted by the new landlord of the building). While I was there, I couldn’t help but think (once again) that quirky spots like Brazenhead no longer have a place in the new, renovated, expensive, sleek, homogenous version of New York City. The city begins to feel like one giant, expensive shopping mall now – and an alternative world, a slice of history, slowly fades away.

You can see a great short video about Michael and his bookshop HERE.

Thanks to Sam Cate-Gumpert for this assignment.

Textures & outtakes from the Anaise Fall 2014 lookbook shoot.

I really love the darkness & tone of the first 2 shots in particular.

Outtakes from Kashmir for Condé Nast Traveler.

Top to bottom: Shalimar Garden (the Garden of Love), one of the stunning Mughal gardens in Srinagar. It was built by Mughal Emperor Jehangir in 1620. A detail inside Jamia Masjid in Srinagar, an incredible (and unfinished) mosque in Old Town. Portrait of a man at the 17th century shrine of Naqshband Shaib. Interior detail at the Jalali Heritage House, which was an incredible place. And 2 men on the shore of Dal Lake in Srinagar.

Above, Kashmir photographed on assignment from Condé Nast Traveler – the March issue is on newsstands now.

These are all photos that were published in the print and digital version of the magazine. I’m working on a larger edit of photos from this assignment for a bigger project, and I can’t wait to share more soon. Over the coming month I’ll continue to post photos & stories from Kashmir – more very soon.

(p.s. – you really should pick up the magazine to read the article itself, written by the excellent Hanya Yanagihara, which explains a lot about the embroiderer you see above and the incredible crafts made by the talented artisans in Kashmir using skills that have been handed down through many many generations. It is simply mind-blowing – like nothing I’ve ever seen before.)

 
 

Group Exhibition: Liberia Pure Honey Project

I am honored to be a part of this group exhibition opening March 5 in Vancouver, alongside an incredibly talented roster of photographers whose work I really admire. And a very worthy cause, too.


http://liberiapurehoney.org/

All works will be available in limited editions and sold online for a very (very) good price. You can purchase my print (or another one, no hard feelings) for $100 beginning the morning of March 6.

The Liberia Pure Honey Project is a benefit exhibition in support of Universal Outreach Foundation​’s ongoing work in Liberia, West Africa. In cooperation with the Liberia Beekeepers Association, UOF has organized the country’s first beekeeper training program and helped create Liberia Pure Honey, a social enterprise that buys, packages, and sells Liberian honey in local grocery stores. In the wake of the ebola crisis, UOF and Liberia Pure Honey are well positioned to make a lasting and meaningful contribution to the nation’s economic recovery. All proceeds from the sale of limited edition prints will be donated directly to UOF and earmarked for the support and expansion of their beekeeper training program.
 
 
Special thanks to Andrew Querner and Nich McElroy for organizing.

Snaps taken on my Contax T2 from various places in January & February. There’s a thread running through all of these shots, and I like seeing that.

 
 

Winter has been brutal. March, please please please be kinder & gentler.
