a childhood flashback

October 2, 2009


This boat brings me back to childhood. I stumbled upon it while visiting Governor’s Island the other day with my mother. It is the Islander, the same ferry that shuttled us between Woods Hole and Vineyard Haven off the coast of Cape Cod all throughout my childhood. Many memories upon this boat. It was bought by Governor’s Island in 2007 but failed to meet regulations and is now caught up in several legal battles.  (Read about the drama here)

Good to see an old friend!


a foggy day in chilmark

September 9, 2009

I went to the beach one day in August, and it looked like this


You could barely see two feet ahead of you. Outta the blue, or outta the fog should I say, these three children came into view. This is something new I’m trying; approaching random people and asking them to pose for me. They were a bit hesitant, but I managed to get this one shot which I quite like.  (click on image for larger view)


Then I went over to a nearby farm to try and spy on the house where Obama was staying (ya ya I know…), but this is all I could see


So I settled for taking a pretty picture of a boat instead.

I was fortunate to be able to volunteer at a vegetable farm this August on the island of Martha’s Vineyard (click here to read about the farm). Participating in the entire process, from seed to sale, was extremely satisfying. Who knew that I would enjoy weeding so much!

I share with you some images.

I present to you a New England Clambake

September 3, 2009


The New England Clam Bake is a traditional method of cooking foods, especially seafood such as lobster, mussels, crabs, steamers, and quahogs. The seafood is often supplemented by sausages, potatoes, onions, carrots, corn on the cob, etc. Clam bakes are usually held on festive occasions along the coast of New England.






Northampton and Manjari Sharma

July 28, 2009

Manjari Sharma and I (as well as Tim Carpenter) led a parallel weekend getaway in a cozy home on the Connecticut river in Northampton, MA while attending the photo workshop. Mornings were spent walking down dirt roads and stripping in the cornfields while evenings were spent expoloring along the river and dissecting the days happenings with a glass of wine on the deck. Cameras were shared, images were collaborations, models were each other.

dad and the deer

July 19, 2009

There’s something about this diptych that excites me. My father has never been an outdoorsy-nature-loving type. Lately though, every time I see him it seems that he’s embracing something new. This spring he began going to the gym for first time in his life and is definitely a changed man. Who knows, maybe camping will be next!

Pics from Cali.





Went out to the Newport Beach Film Festival last month for my friend Matt’s premiere of his movie Our Time. Him and three buddies took a road trip across the country stopping in all 50 states interviewing the youth of our generation. Check out the trailer here.

It’s fascinating to revisit a place that is so familiar to you with someone who is seeing it for the first time.

Lucas took Polaroids of what he saw:

I have been collaborating with my friend Ari recently. It’s great to have someone to go out and shoot with. Motivation and inspiration. We went out to Roosevelt Island at night the other day. Here are some shots from the shoot:
