Goodbye Harlem, hello Guatemala City!


I’ll be in Guatemala reporting for my Master’s thesis and book project from December 27th until the end of January, thanks to generous funding from the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism. 


PS122 tonight!

For anyone here in NYC, tonight is the reception at the PS122 Gallery for the “122 for $122” annual benefit art auction- I have a piece in it, so go on out & show some love! It’s from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm.

The gallery is located at 150 1st Avenue, and this show will be up from December 13th- 21st. 

Here’ s the official blurb:

As PS122 Gallery has always expanded upon convention, 122 For $122 2008 will defy the norm by granting its walls to a select group of artists and curators. This extraordinary group has gathered to create an exciting collection which will be sold to benefit the gallery. Numbering in 122 artists and pieces, this exhibition will transform the progressive space into a salon which will give great opportunity to artists and collectors alike. The gallery hopes 122 For $122 will provide exposure for artists as well as provide collectors an affordable outlet for new and experimental work. As a special thanks, for a donation of at least $25, the space will be open during the hours of 4 and 5 pm as a preview.



Latest Tear: Newsweek


Latest tear accompanies the cover story of this week’s Newsweek, on gay marriage. My picture is the top right corner, a couple who were married (legally, that is!) at San Francisco’s City Hall last spring, on the first morning the state officially sanctioned it.  It’s funny seeing the other photos in the layout, as most of the subjects contained within the images were shot by just about everyone taking pictures that day. Out of all the Northern California press photographers, Getty’s  Justin Sullivan nailed the day best. He’s pretty damn good, and his blog is, too.
