If youve hung out with me at any point during the last year or so and have had the opportunity to see me have a few too many drinks, you have probably heard me rant about a top secret project that has I’ve been working on.
Said project was (re)launched this past Wednesday!
“Shelter, a column about New Yorkers and the places they call home, ran in this paper from 1997 to 2006. To relaunch the feature, which will run here online weekly, we’ve assembled five portraits of New Yorkers at home.”
The awesome Camille Dodero and myself have been hitting the streets lately shooting portraits and interviewing all kinds of different New Yorkers over the past month or so and my back is killin me. Anywhere between Lofts in Long Island City to Mansions on Staten Island, I’ve never been so lucky to get paid to explore NYC and meet its awesome people.
This is my first cover feature for the Village Voice and also my first actual cover photo ever (unless you count above the fold news, which i dont). So you can understand my excitement. Celebratory outback steakhouse pending.
If anyone has any cool ideas for people or places to photograph, let me know. You will be rewarded handsomely. Handsomely = beer.
And if you are in the NYC area, pick one up to read on your subway ride. Maybe in a few years you can use it to pack the things in your kitchen when you decide to move out of bushwick.
