Dazed Digital just did a nice feature on my NYC 1970’s street photos that were recently taken into the permanent collection at the Museum the City of New York.

Another goodie from the NYC subway system. To me this image illustrates the beauty of photography. Most people would never really see this but as viewed through a camera the viewer is forced to deal with disparate elements.

Texas Cop

About 10 years ago I went on  road trip through Texas and found this cop at a roadside fast food burger joint. I fought off my intimidation and asked him if I could snap a portrait of him. I recently rediscovered the image and started to play around with converting it to black and white. Using 3 types of Topaz software this is what I came up with. I like this version much better than the color.

The homeless situation in NYC shows no signs of abating. This was shot on the subway platform at 28th Street and Broadway on my iPhone and proceed using Snapseed.

I have been asked by Stephanie Heimann, the senior photo editor at The New Republic to take over their Instagram feed for one week starting tomorrow 4/30 through the following Friday and post two of my Neo-Burlesque portraits per day. Their one request . . . not too much skin. They can be found on Instagram as @newrepublic

Another day on the NYC subway’s. Never a dull moment if you keep your eyes open.

Portrait of Yan

This is a recent portrait of Yan who I found on Model Mayhem. I shot this in color and processed into black and white using Topaz software. I liked the black and white better especially the platinum color hair against the dark background. She was good in front of the camera which always helps.

Another interesting observation on the NYC subways. Captured on my iPhone and processed with Snapseed. I’d love to know what’s on that kid’s mind . . .

Winter Trees

There’s something about winter trees that captivates me. They have a strength and beauty that you just don’t see when they are covered with leaves. I shot this in color and processed into black and white using Topaz software. I also used Topaz Adjust to bring out the clouds and add to the dark mood of the image. At least for now,  I can’t stop looking at it.
