heartbreak

July 28, 2009

I’m really drawn to Robert Lyons portraits of his ex-wife, Mariam, a series that I was introduced to this past weekend.

In each image there is an over looming sorrow in her expression. Clearly, these were shot at a difficult time in both their lives. It reminded me of some photos I took a few years back, and by photos, I mean photobooth shots, when I was experiencing a similar state of sorrow.

What do to on a cloudy morning?

June 9, 2009

Here I am, dancing away as usual. I literally can’t stop myself sometimes from jumping in front of the lens. I feel that my self portraits are shifting. I’m not exactly sure the new direction, but I’ve definitely been speeding up the shutter. jumping in the grass

I have been feeling pretty unmotivated lately. I’m hoping its just the winter blues. I definitely need to cut down on time checking my gmail, google reader, facebook and the like. Although the photoblogs are often a source for some inspiration. Forced myself to go outside.

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:
