But the world of bricks and plywood he once knew has been replaced by a sea of brightly colored … Continue reading Tijuana’s ‘tent city’ shelters deported immigrants | PHOTOS
I photographed Dr. Javier Lopez of Tijuana's Instituto de Medicina Regenerativa. The story, "Stem Cell Treatments Overtake Science," is by science writer Laura Beil.

My latest piece for Reuters, Los Galgos Guapos, is up over on the Reuters' Pictures Photographers Blog. There were a bunch of images that didn't fit into the blog, or make it onto the wire. Here are a few of my very favorites from the story:
The New Yorker | Finding Fernanda: Pictures from an Investigation “Finding Fernanda,” the first book by the photojournalist and investigative reporter Erin Siegal, uncovers pervasive fraud in the international adoption industry, specifically between Guatemala and the U.S. It’s not a photo book, but photographs are central to its conception.

In the NYT's Lens blog, there's a great interview with Andrea Star Reese, 58, a recent graduate of ICP's Documentary Photography program. They've called her essay on the Lens blog "Finding Community in the Shadows." On Reese's own site, the work is called "The Urban Cave." The buzz about the images carried over to the … Continue reading Andrea Reese: Homelessness in NYC
I learned tonight that the Federation of Black Cowboys' oldest member, Ben "Tex" Miller, has passed away. I last photographed Uncle Ben (as everyone calls him) last June, and I've known him since my first days photographing the Federation, in early 2006. Despite a crooked, hunched back and various injuries from his career as a … Continue reading Rest in Peace, Uncle Ben

Beneath the heart of Wall Street, urban youth let loose in a basement club directly below the crumbles of the United States financial market.

So Redux called me an hour before the debate tonight, asking me to cover a Young Republicans of New York-sponsored debate watching party. Rad! It would have been so much fun to shoot- except the young Republicans weren't exactly young. Well, ok, with one exception. But his mom wasn't too thrilled with having her photo … Continue reading Young Republicans Debate Party
Spent the day at Reuters, not doing homework as usual in my newly-claimed cubicle corner, but shooting CEO's and eating free croissants. Tasty combination... sort of.
Last night was the final night of the 2008 New York Burlesque Festival, ending with the Golden Pasty awards. My favorite act of the night? Darlinda Just Darlinda closed the show, shimmying her way out of a star-spangled dress only to pull a photograph of Sarah Palin out of, um, a body cavity. She … Continue reading NYBF Final Night: The Golden Pasties

On my last day in town, I focused on FLDS children, no small task given that the kids are trained to run away from anyone outside the Priesthood.
Today I spent my morning interviewing Ross Chatwin and his wife, Laurie, about growing up in the Church and their current excommunicated status. At a special annual event in St. George, there were all-day training sessions on polygamy, followed by an evening Town Hall meeting with both the Attorneys General of Utah and Arizona. My … Continue reading Ross & Laurie, and the annual Town Hall Meeting
Short Creek is the old name for the sister cities of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona. As seen below, members of the Priesthood (alos known as the FLDS) were instructed by their prophet, Warren Jeffs, to erect fences around their homes. The purpose of the fence is twofold: to both keep "outsider" eyes out, … Continue reading Short Creek

The entrance... Where does he get those shoes? Not to mention the lacy underpinnings?
Actually, it's when Christian musical acts perform for bunch of nuns, seminarians, students from Catholic high schools and universities, and the Pope himself. An excited nun.

Kelly Clarkson performs "Ave Maria" for the Pope. … Continue reading what’s a “papal youth rally”?
So after flying from SF to NYC last night, I got to St. Joseph's Seminary this morning (big love to my lovely friend Bex, who let me borrow her car for the Brooklyn-to-Yonkers commute).

This weekend I worked on a written piece, which was a humorous reflection on various entertainment assignments I used to cover for Reuters and Retna while I still lived in New York. It got me thinking about my outtakes, wondering about the bad photographs I've taken that are the opposite of a good red carpet … Continue reading Red Carpet Reflections
Check out my photos in the Reuter's anti-war demonstrations slideshow for today.
To be totally honest, yes, I find it inexorably tiring attempting to understand how the public is so consumed with grown men batting pucks and balls around. Tonight's game was the second I've ever been to, and one good fight broke out. Gloves went flying, helmets were chucked, and it got so dirty that the … Continue reading Hockey, once more
