 dear followers,   happy new year to all!   the fact that we all made it here, now, and in this moment, means that whatever hardships we faced, we got through them and are actively stating, “we can strive for better, we can heal, move forward, we are valid, we are a force to behold.”   in this very spirit, i would like to both welcome you to 2014, and thank you so very much for all the support in the past year. i most definitely felt a great broad stroke forward in my creative output, and would love to think that this stride will continue to strengthen in this new year.   this being said, i would like to put out a call for participants & collaborators for continued and new projects. when you have a desire to create something, sometimes you have to ask for help, and rather than be stoic and proud solely in my singular accomplishments, i work much happier with others.   if you or someone you know are interested & in the nyc area, please contact me with no hesitation: 
   the adorned body : looking forward to closing out this tremendously fulfilling project and put it to a lovely rest. i am looking for a handful of familiars and strangers to sit for me, be interviewed, and have their voices heard. (nudes, M/F/TG & everything in between, all appropriate ages, signed release) 
    cape cloak cowl : a diptych series about perceptions of conformity and the deeper truths of individuality, personality, and emotional states. (semi-nudes, M/F/TG & everything in between, all appropriate ages, signed release) 
    portraiture  &  nudes sessions , tailored, collaborative, and varied mediums. looking to set aside our daily lives for a second, and build a series of images where personality meshes with reality & the perception of fantasy. (nudes & clothed, M/F/TG & everything in between, all appropriate ages, signed release) 
   more to come! mini-zines! adventures! photowalks! 
  and as always, many many thanks to all. please  feel free to contact me  with your information on participation, leads to other collaborators, questions, comments, and any other suggestions and ideas!

dear followers,

happy new year to all!

the fact that we all made it here, now, and in this moment, means that whatever hardships we faced, we got through them and are actively stating, “we can strive for better, we can heal, move forward, we are valid, we are a force to behold.”

in this very spirit, i would like to both welcome you to 2014, and thank you so very much for all the support in the past year. i most definitely felt a great broad stroke forward in my creative output, and would love to think that this stride will continue to strengthen in this new year.

this being said, i would like to put out a call for participants & collaborators for continued and new projects. when you have a desire to create something, sometimes you have to ask for help, and rather than be stoic and proud solely in my singular accomplishments, i work much happier with others.

if you or someone you know are interested & in the nyc area, please contact me with no hesitation:

" NYE " 2 0 1 3 " (the "i edit very slow" edition)

—-

a 1st day of the year editing session yields a piece that i completely meant to finish on the same day A YEAR AGO!

haha, so i suppose the lesson, if i wanted to self-impose one onto myself with no deadlines except the ones you implement for yourself, is that if you dedicate yourself to finishing something…you could totally do it in a few hours.

or in the least get organized and begin a project. what was  i waiting for?

so, hopefully it’s still relevant, and interesting as a reflective short. i still cannot believe it took me a whole year to do it, and this has become the best example of a procrastination-last-minute-hail-mary-cram-session everrrrrrrr,

enjoy, and happy new year.

delights and revelry for the time being. allowing yourself the time however brief, to experience a slice of the infinite. all around are songs, public celebration, hope spreading, laughter and dancing, beauty in the cold night.

we find ourselves once again at the beginning of a cycle. this linear and ceaseless existence never fails to deliver the gift of memory, moments, opportunities, and random observations.

i wish to all the very best of luck this year, and hope that this new year’s day marks the beginning of you getting out there and facing fears, adversity, complacency, doubt, and the horrors of previously concrete self-definition.

it’s going to be an interesting time.
