Milwaukee Film Festival

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 00:44:33 +0000

Striding off the plane and toward the Milwaukee Film Festival won’t be like heading to L.A. a year ago, having barely slept and giddy for a date with destiny. The premiere of a director’s first feature film will always be special, mine certainly was. I’m not coming to Milwaukee a seasoned vet either, more of […]



Friends Framed

Recent portraits of architect Alex Meyers and filmmaker Tanuj Chopra.



Back in the City

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 04:08:49 +0000

These photographs were all shot from behind the subjects. Three of them are backlit. In the film The Harder They Come a character uses the exclamation, “[B]ackside!” to express surprise at seeing Jimmy Cliff’s character Ivan, a fuguitive, hanging out in a photo studio. He says it once again to close the scene. “Backside!” I’ve […]



Summer Streets

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 03:14:22 +0000

Seen around town these past couple weeks.



Bus Double

Mon, 15 May 2017 20:37:46 +0000

I saw this frame while on a location scout for an unrelated project. One of those shots that you can’t wait to return home to see if it’s in focus.

Blurred Colors in the City

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 00:00:45 +0000

Tune in Saturday 11 February at 3pm to Work x Work on air. I’ll be moderating a talk called Blurred Colors in the City. I’m excited to be joined by the photographer Andre D. Wagner, and Executive Director of Audio for Fusion Mandana Mofidi. The hour will explore issues of race and cultural diversity in […]

Mumbai, London, Barcelona

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 21:30:30 +0000

A few months ago a client sent me abroad to Mumbai, London, and Barcelona to capture the stories of leading urbanists Dr. Joan Clos and PK Das.



Podcast Love

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 21:17:32 +0000

I recently appeared on the podcast Filmwax Radio. And while I’ve appeared in media before, this one felt a bit like a rite of passage. Any New York filmmaker of note has appeared on it over the years and I’ve listened to many episodes. Adam’s cat sat in my lap for a few minutes as […]



Candid Voice and Camera

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 07:26:43 +0000

Work x Work produced an audio interview about my photography. The post also features more of my photos from Morocco. The image above is just a taste. Click here for the full flavor.



Urbanworld Film Festival

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 05:32:02 +0000

The Urbanworld Film Festival was the first stop in five weeks of madness. Five weeks without a day off. Five weeks of incremental, unrelenting stress. It was also the New York premiere of my film “72 Hours: a Brooklyn Love Story?” The opening night party was held high above the city and led off with […]



Use the Camera to Dignify Your Characters

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 04:24:54 +0000

Scout Tafoya, the film essayist, approached after our screening at the BlackStar Film Festival to congratulate me on making a "fucking awesome film."



LA Film Festival

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:37:20 +0000

Flying out to LA I knew one thing was certain, I would return a changed person – baptized by the fact that I could now, officially, call myself a feature filmmaker. The festival itself was 9 days, but I stayed in LA for just over two weeks, saw at least 14 movies, and talked myself […]
