. . . . . . . . .


I’m back in the USA and I’m slowly re-adjusting. It feels good to be home.

Right now, I’m sitting on the couch at my parents’ house in Connecticut, and the weather looks like England outside. Rainy, grey, dark. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving (my favorite). I missed this holiday while living in London. We have a day of cooking ahead, and I’m looking forward to eating, drinking, relaxing, reading, and catching up over the coming days.

I’ve also started the search for an apartment in Brooklyn, which is one of my least favorite things to do (this is probably my 4th or 5th apartment search in NYC and it never gets any easier). If you have any leads on a 1-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn available to rent in the next month, please do get in touch with me via email. Thanks.

In the meantime, I’m hoping to post here more regularly as time allows. I have a bunch of photos from the past couple of months in the UK that I didn’t have time to share before I moved.  I also have a couple of projects to share with you soon.

Above are some photos from Edinburgh in October with Molly, Christophe & Gemma. That was a great weekend.

And 3 recent photography commissions that are really inspiring to me:
1. Estelle Hanania photographs Anouck Lepère for NOWNESS
2. Jennilee Marigomen photographs Roden Gray’s A/W 2011 collection, ‘Fade Into Winter’
3. Erik Wåhlström for Bon Magazine

So much good stuff.

More very soon.

    Brian, WHERE do they know that EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT (eventually)?
    Very atmospheric collection and some real beauties. I wish for you to find the perfect apartment; I know how much this can be a nightmare. Best of luck!

    Hi – Just a lurker who enjoys the way you look at the world. I think almost everyone knows about Stephanie Diamond’s Listing Project (, but I’m putting it out there just in case. Mostly work spaces for rent, there are usually a few apartments, too. I wasn’t going to comment, but then I saw the names of your friends. My cats are Gemma and Molly; we actually just lost Molly to cancer last month and miss her a lot.

    Welcome home! What a perfect time to come back–to a warm kitchen filled with family and good food.
    Enjoy the holiday, and hope the apt hunt goes as smoothly as possible.

    Welcome home, Brian. Maybe the misty New England weather will make it an easier adjustment.

    Welcome back to the U.S., wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving!

    hello Brian I love your blog so much that I had to stop reading for a bit because I wanted mine to be just like yours! I discovered you last year via Orangette – I was living in Istanbul and really really homesick. Welcome back to the USA and hope you have an easy settling back in {oh congrats on Starbucks and the new book}

    How much did there bottles remind me Morandi…having them at the open window made it all look very Italian – even though it is not. I love the grass image. Good Luck in the US.

    Hi Brian! Welcome back even though I am not in Brooklyn. But closer than from London.
    And I like this: “I’m hoping to post here more regularly as time allows.”

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Oh wait, I really like the photo of the grass! It’s like I could touch and feel it like a wind!
