Tales from “The Holy Land” with Rafael Alvarez

Spent a day this week hanging out with Rafael Alvarez on Fairmount and Patterson Park Ave (with a pit stop for lunch at the famed Attman’s) photographing Isaac “Irin” Levin, 90, in front of the building that used to house his childhood home and family bakery, Levin’s.  While photographing his old friend Lucy DiPinto, 85, popped in to say hello.

Experiments // NSFW

After a busy month or two its always nice to head to the studio and explore some new things.  In this set I collaborated with a friend to shoot what we hope are more raw, less “pretty”, less romantic nude photos.  Not sure how well I accomplished that, but I’m happy with these.

Crazy Tuna

Last year Brady Robinson and I worked together on an assignment for What Weekly.  We were sent to taste, photograph and write about The Crazy Tuna.  Brady handled the writing, I handled the photographs and we both enjoyed the food!  I love these surprise assignments that pop up every once in a while.  And naturally, I love food.
