A selection of my Neo-Burlesque portraits are currently running on BuzzFeed.
My latest portrait in my new Musiciacns 50+ series. This is bass player Kenny Aaronson. Kenny’s played with Bob Dylan, Billy Idol, Joan Jett, Brian Setzer, Michael Shrieve and a host of others. Recently he’s toured with the New York Dolls.
This is my portrait of guitar player Ivan Julian. Ivan was one of the founding members of the seminal NYC Punk band Richard Hell and the Voidoids.
To celebrate Pride London 2014 Mr. President, an advertising agency in London used some of my burlesque portraits to create an eyecatching exhibit that featured presidents of the world in some of gay prides boldest costumes. In their words “The retouched images were hung in our windows overlooking Soho Square and featured President Putin in a small pair of leather pants, President Hollande in a cheeky little rubber number and President Merkel flashing her bits whilst doused in pearls. President Obama, he opted for a rather more sensible all in one sequinned blue spandex rabbit outfit”.
The latest in my new B&W portrait series titled Musicians 50+. Rob is a keyboard player/songwriter/producer living and working in NYC.
This is the second in my new portrait series, Musicians 50+. This is Binky Phillips lead guitarist and songwriter from the legendary NYC band The Planets. Binky is also the author of a book titled My LIfe In The Ghost of Planets: The Story of a CBGB Almost-Was. Read Binky’s blogs in The Huffington Post.
Norton Books just used one of my Half-Drag images on a text book titled Gender.
Today is the the opening of my second show at the Vanilla Gallery in Tokyo. There aree a total of 52 prints on exhibit, 26 from each project.
This portrait of guitarist Al Maddy was orignally shot in color, converted to B&W and then digitally enhanced. I’m thinking about a series of these of musicians over the age of 50 . . .
