PHOTOLUST: Group show in Seattle

September 29, 2010

I met Ann Pallesen, the Gallery Director of Photographic Centre North West at Review Santa Fe 2010 and Rafael Soldi when he co curated Select Gender, a show at Farmani Gallery earlier this year. It gives me great pleasure to get to associate with both of these kindred photo spirits together. Thanks Rafael for the lovely post on PCNW’s blog and thankyou Ann for inviting me to participate with such a strong line up of names in this show. Both Ann and Rafael are incredible photographers themselves so please check out their works as well.

The opening for this show will be on October 2nd, Saturday in Seattle, Washington. Those of you who can manage to swing by and show support please do! Here is a list of people participating artists in this show to get you excited about being there.


Published, Penguin Books, The trouble with Half a Moon

I recently photographed for Penguin Books young readers division. They had a great story about a courageous girl who grows up in the projects fighting a rough upbringing and overcomes challenges in spite of what life has handed her. We used a brilliant location that fed our layout needs after a painful scout! A big shout out to Dima and Alla gavrysh who were not only gracious and trusting hosts but also a star creative couple to meet! Check out Dima’s fantastic photo journalistic work here.

But perhaps the biggest of all shouts on this project go to Jeanine Henderson who has had repeated trust and faith in my work as a photographer since I started here in NYC. Jeanine was not only the Graphic Designer/ Art Director on this job but is also herself a star Illustrator! please take a look at her work here to see some refreshing eye candy. Miss Jeanine here’s to many more assignments together!

Here is one of my personal favorites, an outtake from the shoot.

Times of India

September 27, 2010

I got some noteworthy press in India a little while ago. The article appeared in Crest the Arts and Culture supplement of Times of India. Deepanjana who is a terrific writer on Arts in Mumbai was such a ball to work with. I realized i never posted on the Ishaara about it, so here goes. On another note by the way, the blog has come to be such a digital diary for me really.

If some important news isn’t placed on the blog by me soon enough, I feel it finds a way to get lost in my life. I find it relieving once I’ve blogged about it though because I know it has now transformed to linkable information to be viewed, visited and shared just by one click. I never thought I would associate this much emotional attachment with a blog that I slowly nourish over time but now of course ,,, I’m just rambling.

In the midst of all this fashion week madness…. this caught my eye around the Lincoln Center fountain. Its amazing how people privatize public space in New York!

On my mind

My friend and photographer Tim Carpenter turned me onto a fabulous blog called Unless You Will . This is where I learned about Alessandro Imbriaco whose multiple bodies of work impressed me incredibly!
Please take a look at his work… he is most certainly on my mind!
