I often get compared to Slim Aarons (what a compliment!), but when a publication as esteemed as Veranda starts throwing it around I can’t help but be flattered…and honored…and grateful. Hopefully I can live up to the compliment. Check it out below.
Very rarely, you get the opportunity to meet some of life's absolute characters. Those people who blaze their own trail, beat to their own drum, and often times change the way others view the world around them. I had the amazing pleasure to spend some time with one such woman a little while ago: gallerist, curator, dealer and art pioneer Bernice Steinbaum. Over 30 years ago, Bernice broke the mold in Manhattan, opening a gallery in Soho that focused on 50% female artists and 40% artists of color. Since then she has moved to Miami, but still champions the cause of diversity in art. I took these pictures in combination with great documentary short (not by me, but the lovely Kristina Sorge) available on iTunes:
Also, check out this article on the movie, featuring my photos, on Art Report:
I did a photo shoot with famed Opera star Diana Damrau for the the clothing store Escada and Town & Country online. It was a lot fun and I thought I'd share. Check out the full story here:
In August, I teamed with the Boys and Girls Club of Newport, RI to do a series of large scale portraits of some of their kids. The images were printed 30"x40" and put on display during their 35th annual charity gala and auction at Rosecliff Mansion. It was a pleasure to help out with such a great cause and I was thrilled with the results.
My cover story for Quest Magazine, on stands now. Newport has long been a focus of my photography and I'm glad to finally have some of my favorite shots published. In many ways, the town is the last surviving bastion of old money style and manners. Check it out online here:
Check out my photos (with words by Sam Bolton) in this month's (December 2013) Manhattan Magazine. The piece focuses on some of the new guard in NYC's art world. If you're too lazy to go to your local newsstand, I suppose you may check out the online version (or just look at the jpegs I'm posting here…man i'm making this too easy). Fun fact for the reader, this story was originally shot for Barton G.'s Vault Magazine out of Miami, before the illustrious publication folded after just one issue. Their loss is Manhattan Magazine's gain I suppose….
To all of my Dutch fans out there (don't all chime in at once now), check out this issue of Quote Magazine (by the lovely Hearst Corporation of The Netherlands) for my pictures of Pieter Taselaar and family. I have no idea what the article says, but I'm sure it's lovely...
For the second year in a row, Sam Bolton and I have done a story for David Patrick Columbia's New York Social Diary showcasing some of Newport, Rhode Island's local elite (I hate that word). Check it out: http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/node/1909997
