portrait of jessica hopper

I had the honor of meeting and photographing the music writer and senior editor of Pitchfork back in March for the June issue of Bust Magazine – pick it up on newsstands now!  I saw her read from her new book The First Collection of Criticism by a Female Rock Critic in Greenpoint tonight.  It’s an amazing collection of writing the delves much further beyond music and into culture at large. She’s charming, witty, and down-to-earth – it was great to work with you Jessica!

beach rituals with doom trumpet

Shot a video with Brooklyn’s doom trumpet this weekend. Went to the beach with some witches, welcomed the equinox with a ritual, flew kites, and other fun things. The full video is coming soon!

Ancient Egyptian New Year’s Hot Rave

…it was called something like that. It was basically a super hot and sweaty fun birthday dance party at the Center for the Advancement of Contemporary Art, which is the home to to a few friends’ art studios, located in Williamsburg.  Talibam! played in Maya Hayuk’s studio space (those are her rad paintings in the background) – they were weird and awesome. Here’s a photo:

Nicky in Niagara, NYC

Did a little shoot with Nicky Da B this weekend while he was in town.  Thanks to Amanda Browder for letting us shoot in her amazing piece Hello, Niagara which was installed at the Dumbo Arts Festival.  Here are a few takes from the shoot…
