Happy to see my photogaphs of Paul Taylor in the Village Voice. It was great shooting the company last week!
I have had many print requests for my dance photography and I am finally making the images available as exhibition quality archival fine art prints. I personally create each print at the time of order. Please go to my fine art site to view the photographs. I will be adding additional images over the next few months.
Dress rehearsal of Trainor Dance's "Paint" with Tamrin Goldberg, Emily Pacilio, Shirley Dai, Hannah Weeks, Caitlin Trainor, and Emily Craver. What is amazing and wonderful is all 6 women have worked with me on the Intimate Portrait Project.
The darkroom hates underexposed negatives but as it turns out the scanner loves negatives you can see through. This week I've been scanning some old negatives. Before today I had never seen this image. All it was is a dark smear on a contact sheet. I decided to see what my scanner could pull out of the negative and there was this picture, taken at a dress rehearsal of Paul Taylor's "Runes" on March 20, 1984. It was a very happy surprise.
It's taken me an entire year but I've finally finished the 8th edition of VISION Magazine. This is the first issue that is completely about my own work and nothing is more difficult than an artist editing themself. As the year went on I felt the need to add pages to include my "Wet Film: Blue" and "Modigliani" projects. Included in the 68 page magazine are photo-essays on my trips to the Soviet Union, shooting with Bill T. Jones, working in strip clubs, the Coney Island Merma...id Parade, and my Intimate Portrait Project. It feels like a book on my work. The book can be purchased by going to this link... http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1352799?__r=18630
and is available in print and digital formats. This is a rare publication where honest stories about the thoughts of a fine art photographer are shared... what if feels like to be intimate with a choreographer's work and what it feels like to have a physical and emotional connection to a special group of muses. Your support is appreciated.
