Project

We started a new project.  It’s a work in progress at this point and phase one is complete.  We cut the spines off of two copies of Allen’s book, Where the North Sea Touches Alabama.  Starting with the preface, we reassembled the pages into what will eventually be an accordion style book.  At this stage, we’re just playing with the materials and seeing what comes next.  I’m enjoying the collaboration.

New Work

I shot this in Sydney for my ongoing project entitled Perfect Days.  I’ll be adding this, as well as some additional new ones to my website soon.  I’m looking forward to possibly taking this work in a new direction in the coming months.

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.” – Susan Sontag

East Side Photo-Walk -12/21/14

These are some of my pictures from another of David Torke’s amazing photography tours of Buffalo’s East Side.

The main event was hiking to the top of the gigantic snow mound formed from the nearly 7,000 truck loads of Lake Effect snow that was transported to Buffalo’s Central Terminal from South Buffalo and the southtowns after the historic “Snovember” storm of 2014.  The mound is 40 to 50 feet high and provides a rare vantage point for shooting the Central Terminal and the surrounding neighborhood.  The Central terminal is now being restored, but parts of it remain abandoned and run down.  We made our way inside and explored as part of the tour as well.

Also pictured, scenes from the Belt Line and some neighborhood shots.
