Portrait of an Artist

Noah Kalina is a Photographer and a great contemporary artist. These are my photographs of Noah at his Brooklyn studio as he photographed me and we talked about the business of being a photographer.

Thanks Noah, for inviting me to your studio, I have such a respect for you and your work.

Hooked by Red Hook

Secret gardens, vintage pick-ups, quiet seaport town streets, and thrifted wares for sale on the corner… this past weekend I hopped on the free ferry and explored all Red Hook had to offer from stunning jewels at Erie Basin, to the best damn Key Lime Pie outside the Keys, Red Lipstick’s unique boutique, addictive dumplings by The Good Fork, and what artists had to offer on the Brooklyn waterfront. 

PS- while I was there I stopped into IKEA to pick up a bunch of these classic & CHEAP dishtowels I learned about from THIS photo shoot!
