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…

Dance parties, sparklers and shoes I can’t walk in.

Dance parties at Roberta’s are way more fun that one would expect.

I finally got to wear these shoes.

I went to two parties last weekend at which there were sparklers.  I need more sparklers in my life.

Joann and Angell got married!!!!!!!!!! Look at how she is glowing!

Corinne pulled Jay’s pants down!

My friend Jay.

This is my friend Jay.  He’s a DJ.  He goes by the name Rusty Lazer.

Jay is generous, kind, enthusiastic and you should see him throw a party (you can refer to this post to get a better idea of what one is like).

I like visiting him and sitting at his kitchen table and drinking tea while he tells me about the tour he’s come back from or the crazy show he’s just been at or the photo shoot he’s been a part of or how wild it is that Sissy Bounce has gotten so huge.  (And it has!) If you don’t know what it is, google it, or look at his website.

This is Jay in his yard, which is a constant work-in-progress for him, that I imagine he will get to when he’s not flying all over the world playing shows and making people dance.

Thanks for your hospitality and time in NOLA, Jay.  I’ll see you soon, fo’ sho.’
