Planting Fields Arboretum

Well, this certainly does not look like a street though I suppose the shadows do suggest the paths of several intersecting roads. But I am using “street photography” broadly here. Much of my work is created for commissions by the U.S. National Park Service (NPS). That work is methodically planned out and involves an assortmentContinue reading “Planting Fields Arboretum”

Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street

In a previous blog post, I described my experience revisiting West 14th Street, an area I frequented many years ago when I worked in the music industry.  Although the area has changed, I photographed a residential building — number 200 — that stood on West 14th for over one hundred years. As I continued walkingContinue reading “Street Photography: 210 West 14th Street”

Cathedral of St. John the Divine

For some, Easter is not complete without attending a church service. For the Episcopal church in Morningside Heights, commonly known as St. John’s, that sense of incompleteness has lingered for well over a century. Construction of the church began in 1892 and the first service was held in 1899. And, yet, the structure remains unfinished.Continue reading “Cathedral of St. John the Divine”

Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street

It’s been a while since I have posted any street photography work.  It’s easy to get backed up especially as I was starting a new National Park Service commission that gave rise to some artistic and technical and challenges.  Now that so much of the world is under some sort of quarantine, the commission isContinue reading “Street Photography: 200 West 14th Street”

Big Ben’s Rainbow

I was in London to meet with the cultural attaché of the U.S. Embassy to the United Kingdom. He expressed interest in presenting a solo exhibition of my photography at a new building that was to be constructed at Nine Elms. While there, I also visited the National Poetry Library to explore the possibility ofContinue reading “Big Ben’s Rainbow”

From the New York City Collection

Recently, I was back in Greenwich Village. It’s where I went to law school at New York University. Walking along Broadway, I came across this empty storefront, which signaled that the tradition of artsy protest was alive and well in this iconic neighborhood. Ironically, someone – an NYU student most likely – scrawled “No MoreContinue reading “From the New York City Collection”

Street Photography: Looking Down

A while ago I was reading up on San Francisco in anticipation of a visit I was making to the city. I read about how it is one of the most populous US cities and other statistical facts. What caught my attention though was that the city was dealing with a chronic problem of humanContinue reading “Street Photography: Looking Down”
