Hurts So Good

I decided to manipulate this photo because, as is, it functioned more as a portrait which really wasn't the intention. I liked the image and the the way that it played into the glamourization of smoking. At the time I was yelling at my friend about her habit and this was her mocking response. She later quit, and I later started. Such is life. Furthermore, the photo just wasn't technically that good. Why not play with the color?

Rammed Earth House

It took me all day but here are the additional Joshua Tree pics I promised, with some more detail of the rammed earth structures. My friend David Weisman was making a documentary about alternative architecture titled At Home With Mother Earth. That's him with the camera. He took the pictures of me sitting on one of the structures and trying my hand at making bricks. All of the bricks were handmade with personal details

The Homestretch

The marathon is sometimes just as long for the spectators, especially those of us without tickets or special
access. The picture on the left was taken just a few hundred yards in front of the finishline; The picture on
the right a few hundred after. The middle picture shows the walk around the Great Lawn we had to traverse
to get from one side to the other. The finish line is in the middle there somewhere.

I'm still not used to the digital camera. I like the spontaneity but the focus and framing leave a great deal
to be desired.

26.2 miles, huh?

Due to the sorry, dismantled shape of my computer, I'm having trouble updating the site (See picture on the far right.) However, l wanted to share a few pictures from this year's NYC Marathon. These were taken at Central Park South about 1 mile from the finish. This is the group averaging about 10 mins/mile. Congratulations to everyone who ran and especially women's 1st & 2nd place finalists Paula Radcliffe and Susan Chepkemei who put on the best display of sportsmanship I've seen in years.

Civil Disobedience

New York City, East Village, Summer 1996: Mayor Guiliani evicts 13th Street Squatters

The past election got me thinking about the various ways we express our feelings about our government. (On one hand an orderly election, defeat graciously conceded, victory accepted. And on the other hand... )
I lived in the building I took those pictures from for 8 years. I was not a squatter, yet I was treated as if I was a vagrant by the occupying police force and dragged out from the apartment where I paid rent. Luckily I grabbed my camera.

Another article from the squatter perspective: Squat the world.

Jen Profile

I took this portrait for my first photography class in 1990. Today, my model (a wonderful friend) had her first baby, a girl. What a day to be born.

The softness is a resuolt o scanning a slide without a transparency adapter. Normally, that produces garbage, but I like the effect here. Better than any filter.
