Here’s a new portrait of Johanna Fateman. She owns Seagull Salon which is next door to my wife Kerrilynn’s store, Castor & Pollux. Neighbors and what not. She is 1/3 of Le Tigre and writes and produces music for Christina Aguilera, among others. She looks like this and makes music with Le Tigre member JD [...]
Designer Reece Solomon, was prepping for a trip to Paris, and I like to make all my shoots quick and easy, so I shot this around the corner from her Reece Hudson studio. She is easy on the eyes and that makes a photographer’s life simple…. thus no assistants, no bounce cards, one camera, two [...]
Here is the amazing part: “You’re a very good photographer.” That, Dear Reader, is very nice to hear. Especially when it comes from Dionne Thornton, Jed Root’s Director of Exhibitions and Publications and she says it to me (yes, I just high fived myself).

Katie Finn of Elizabeth Street Jewelry is a virgo, makes stuff out of gold and diamonds, has NOLA pride and likes the ocean. This pic is for LOVING where you can see her interview. She really doesn’t like having her picture taken so I was tempted to offer up some tequila but is wasn’t even [...]
The BBC doc “Cracked Actor” about David Bowie circa ’75 is up on Vimeo (for at least a little while). He talks in a limo while driving through the desert, applies makeup, plays with Burroughs’ cut-up technique, mimes, talks death… The Ziggy Stardust-era footage of dressed up fans alone makes it worth the watch. It [...]
