Mark & Jinky's Wedding

Mark & Jinky had one of the most relaxed weddings I've been to, by their design. Success. The bride & groom were chill as it gets. Spent the day shooting prep stuff, then boarded The Atlantica for the ceremony and a harbor cruise. Great time was had by all.

Larger gallery coming soon.

Puerto Rico

Reefs a million years old, stingrays and sharks like ironwrought clockworks wound up and set loose before the oceans had cooled. Still ticking. Poisoning. Eating. Shitting. Dreaming. Mouthfuls of sand and ground coral. Drug boats sneaking from the shadow of one island to another like B-movie goons. Sparks from under rusting engine at midnight, a weedy yard full of sweatstained Indians drinking Medalla Lights as they build a Frankenstein Chevy. Hug your beliefs a little closer here, or slough them off and face it. Ask the Spanish ghosts clinging to the ground bones of their empire, littered along the shores with the crab shells and bottle caps and pared fingernails of dead volcanos.

Off in the distance, a thin electronic whine, a mosquito looking for a soft spot in the cartilege of your ear. Elections. Campaign contributions. Wall Street. Recession. Tea parties. Thin as a strand of fishing twine, as fake. Snap it with a twitch of muscle. No one down here will care in twenty years, any more than they care now. They've heard that whine for centuries. There's a Yankees game on. And the weather report. That's something. Outside, the belly of a thunderhead growls. The tarpon draw fat black rubber curves in the splishing water, searching for scraps in the dock lights. A brown paper bag flutters over lapping tongue-tips, a bat plucking ripe bugs from the night. Across the water the mountain of Yunke inhales clouds from the sea and exhales rain; his first breath came before we were born. I remember a taxi driver in San Juan washing his windshield off. Sand, he said. There's a haze before the moon. Saharan sand. Rides the tradewinds across the Atlantic. The bat takes another bug.

The great folks at the NYC chapter of COLAGE have put me to work shooting their fundraisers twice now; this year I also marched with them in the PRIDE parade and snapped away. That is some party. And exhausting: I must've logged twenty miles on foot by day's end.

Thanks to Jamie Larson (organizer extraordinaire) and Danielle Silber for bringing me on board.

Full set of shots here.

Brooklyn Boatworks

Brooklyn Boatworks is a non-profit organization with a yearly workshop in boat-building for New York schoolkids. At workshop's end they launch their handmade boats into the Hudson River, have a small party, hand out some awards, and go sailing for an hour. It's a great scene. The kids have a blast, even if they don't quite trust their own handiwork at first. Shots came out pretty well, I thought.

See the full set posted on BBW's site here.

Oh, one shot made it into the Metro, too:

Democracia Real Ya NYC

Discussion held by Democracia Real Ya NYC at the exceptional independent bookstore Bluestockings. To comprehend what's going on in Spain, the New York Times version isn't a bad starting place.
