Here’s one that I’ve been working on lately.
I climbed a local scrambling trail (Breakneck Ridge, for those curious) in the dense fog and steady mist to make this image of Storm King Mountain. The rain and wind were steady that day on the cliff. The chance to be alone on this otherwise crowded trail was truly a privilege.
I’ve been getting SUPER into climbing lately. These are from a climb we did in The Gunks.
I love hiking and backpacking; nothing used to satisfy me more than summiting a peak after hours of switchbacks and scrambling. Climbing my first multi-pitch made everything else pale in comparison though. I guess it’s time for some more challenging hikes (and to start climbing more).
I’m in the outdoors all the time, and I’m going to do my best to document those experiences. Here is one version of a photo I took while hiking Bear Mountain a few weeks ago.
Here I am in front of my piece showing at the Soho Photo gallery.

On Henrietta Lacks:
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization, and more. Henrietta’s cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can’t afford health insurance.

Hi everyone, just an update; this photo was accepted into the 2014 International Krappy Kamera Competition, at the Soho Photo Gallery. Krappy Kamera is a competition meant for lofi cameras with less than great (crappy) lenses, like Holgas or Dianas. This is my first piece that’s been accepted into the contest, and I’m pretty excited.
The show is February 5th through March 1st. If you have the chance, go check it out!
