September 2017—Everything’s New
Breathe deep the new-pixel smell! Since I first cobbled together the old site, the web has been transformed by smartphones, tablets, high-definition displays, the horseless carriage, the discovery of fire … This new incarnation, I’m happy to say, knows all the tricks. It morphs to fit any screen. It gets out of the way of the images. And it’s easy to manage, so I’ll be inclined to keep it fresh with irresistible content (like this). Many thanks to the gurus at Minimal Themes, and to the amazing Laura Henze.
We’re planning a solo show and book release party at the Front Room Gallery on New York’s Lower East Side. Details to come.
June 16–July 16 2017
A print from the Domino Sugar Refinery project will be on display in the Front Room Gallery’s Summer Sampler show, in their new Lower East Side space. Lots of work by 16 other art stars from Front Room’s stable. Opening receptions Friday, June 16th 7–9PM
My book, Brooklyn’s Sweet Ruin: Relics and Stories of the Domino Sugar Refinery will be available this fall. You can pre-order from the Publisher or from Amazon. More about the Domino Sugar Refinery project in Brooklyn Magazine, Architect Magazine, CurbedNY, the Daily Mail UK, Beford & Bowery, and Animal New York.
May 19–September 10 2017
Two prints from the Domino Sugar project are in “Shifting Perspectives: Photographs of Brooklyn’s Waterfront,” the inaugural show at the Brooklyn Historical Society DUMBO.

January 20–29 2017
A few big prints from the Domino project will be in the Coda show, at the Front Room Gallery’s Williamsburg farewell exhibition. Front Room is moving afterwards, chasing the lower rents and gritty charm of Manhattan.
January 8-February 21 2016
Three prints from the Domino Sugar Refinery project will be in the Front Room Gallery’s show, Beyond Ruin Porn, along with Amanda Alic, Phillip Buehler, Sashca Bezzubov & Jessica Sucher, Sean Hemmerle, and Stephen Mallon. Reception Friday January 8.
A selection from a new project is part of an outdoor installation at Barclays Center called Another New York, curated by Artbridge. Multimedia story in the New York Times, July 21.
A print from Sub/Culture will be in the Museum of the City of New York’s Street Shots NYC, a massive juried show hung at the South Street Seaport Museum to celebrate its post-hurricane Sandy reopening.
June 28 to September 18 2011
A few prints from the Wilderness project will be in the show Brooklyn Bridges: Engineering as Art an Inspiration at the Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch, Grand Lobby. Opening Tuesday June 28, 6–8pm.
Some recent work is available for free download in issue 7 of the Irish magazine SuperMassiveBlackHole.
I’ll be having a solo show of the Lost Spaces, Found Gardens project at the Williamsburg branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.
Several prints from the Wilderness project will be in a solo show at the Brooklyn Heights Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Titled Ten Years Under the Manhattan Bridge, this show demonstrates how in a few short years a body of work can be reframed from a challenging look at the present to nostalgia. Put another way, these pictures are accruing layers of meaning, while their maker is just getting old. Whatever. You kids wouldn’t understand.
Selections from Lost Spaces, Found Gardens will appear in the Czech magazine Digifoto, with an interview and essay by editor Vondrova Silvie.
February and March 2007
Selections from the Wilderness project will hang in a juried exhibition titled Brooklynature at St. Joseph’s College, Brooklyn.
