Friday video is baaaack!
Sit back and relax, cause this one is a long thought-provoker. Do you feel the sadness of lost artistry? How about the euphoria of unlimited artistic possibility? Today, we're tackling the digital revolution with House of Radon's feature length PressPausePlay.
I'm very pleased to announce that I will be continuing to work with the good folks over at Friends of the High Line to document the construction of their new Maintenance and Operations building, designed by the internationally renown architect Renzo Piano (who is also designing the neighboring Whitney Museum downtown building, which is also under construction)! The construction should last about a year and I've just had my first "boots in the mud" experience on site last week.
Here's more on the building and its design from the Architect's Newspaper.
What a great weekend--took a trip back to the old neighborhood (Hoboken NJ) over the weekend to visit some friends and get some good eats. We caught some nice light in the late afternoon while walking the riverfront and I got these shots of the skyline and the cruise ships leaving for destinations unknown. The top shot was featured by Instagram over on their blog. Never could beat the views from Jersey, especially from Hoboken and Weehawken!
Early in the year is the best time to get a jump on new work. Here's my Winter 2012 e-flyer for my architectural/construction clients. I just sent it out to a select group of contacts with a personalized email describing what I've shot in the last year and what I'd like to do this year. Fingers crossed it brings me some interesting and fruitful results!
One of my favorite WTC images is appearing in the WTC Welcome Center mini-gallery and traveling exhibit, a small collection of photographs featuring work from the site over the past 10 years. I'm quite pleased and certainly honored to see my photo of the lunchbreak napper in the memorial footprint hanging alongside the work of The New York Times' Fred Conrad, National Geographic's Ira Block, Getty Images' Chris Hondros and Spencer Platt, and Newsweek/Panos Pictures' Tim Hetherington among others.
