Unlike my photo journalism friends, I wanted to steer clear of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 things happening in the city, so I scheduled shoots in the outskirts of Brooklyn. I took the train out there and then my friend Karin picked me up and leant me her car for the day. We also stopped by the awesome vintage pop up shop she runs on the weekend in Red Hook. My first shoot of the day was expat Mainer, Rachel and her fiance Sean. The both work for the ACLU and are hoping to move back to Maine soon. Rachel wrote a very beautiful story for the pwyc sale and also made me a killer cup of coffee.
Andrew's place in Sunset Park. Another Brooklyn neighborhood that was new to me. He has a small studio in his apartment so I got to see some drawings/sculpture/installations and a few cell phone photo books that he is working on. Although we saw each other in Los Angeles last fall, it was nice to just sit around and talk about art and life.
writer and Robin is an interior designer. They all had just woken up from a difficult nap session, so it was extra awesome they rallied for a picture. And Henry really wanted to show me how he destroyed his room pre-nap.
Red Hook Bait and Tackle. Karin met us and then we all went a party at their friend Norbert's studio which was filled with welding machines and fantastic lights. He also had a really nice 9/11 memorial, incense shaped like the towers.
