United Nations General Assembly, 2009

clips, words

I’m in NYC for the next two weeks, working as a United Nations staff photog for this year’s General Assembly. It’s mostly shooting images like this, but there’s occasionally a little low-key differentiation.

Personally, I’m having a blast taking pictures of the actual building itself, and various U.N. accoutrements. Yeah, I said it, accoutrements. Hey, half the building’s signage is in French! It begins to rub off. This is a photograph I took early on, while I was supposed to be shooting a rather dreary press conference. Yup, it’s true: the U.N. covers its electrical outlets in wallpaper.
