The “Intersecta” show opening, a project that had been conceived more than a year ago, finally had its debut on March 29th in Rio de Janeiro’s Duilio Sartori Gallery.

Designer and gallery/store owner Duilio Sartori was immediately taken by my Hazyvision work when I showed him an edit I was hoping to exhibit in Rio de Janeiro that was shot exclusively in New York City. He thought it would be a great challenge to create a body of Hazyvision work for a show in Rio.

The next day, I started shooting in the streets and on the beach in Copacabana. I shot mostly during the magic hour when the sun goes down until dark for the next 3 weeks, working my way around Rio, over to Ipanema beach, up the Sugar Loaf and the up the windy road to Santa Teresa, around the Lagoon and again and again through Copacabana beach. It was hard to edit the series down to 8 images, but we managed.

In addition to the exhibition I worked together with John Dill, whose design and typography sensibility is simply stunning, to design a coffee table book entitled “Dreaming in Rio” (click here to view the book). I printed the book online and I’m looking for a publisher to print it on a high quality offset press. Any recommendations are welcome!

Tonight “Intersection” is opening at Duilio Sartori Gallery in Rio de Janeiro. Check out the video invite at http://vimeo.com/39073317. I will be showing 8 pieces of my abstract Hazyvision work along with brilliant Glass designer Anna Torfs work. I’m very excited and curious how the people from Rio will receive my work. More later!

Oumlil Fall 2012 Video and Look Book

I had a wonderful time shooting for Hashim Oumlil’s Fall 2012 Collection!

One of the highlights during my time at fashion week was seeing Hashim Oumlil’s sharp men’s collection. The cuts are superb and his esthetic very 1930’s European, which I absolutely love! When he approached me to shoot his Fall 2012 look book and mood images for his website, I was instantly sold. We had a great model; German-looking Brazilian William Jagnow from Request Models was perfect to bring the retro-modernist look to life. I set up studio in the showroom in Oumlil’s showroom. Super-talented David Widjaja from Intro Artists, with whom I’ve worked a number of  times, styled the shoot. Hairstylist and professional groomer Hugh McGuire made William look like a  Bauhaus student.
I kept the set-up simple; I used 2 strip lights on each side to create a cross-shadow, which gave the shoot a stark architectural feeling without distracting from the fashion. I hope Oumlil’s next collection will be unisex!

Also, The Fashionisto was kind enough to post our photo collection to their popular blog site!

The following are some of the photos I took at the shoot…

And here are a few fun behind the scenes shots…

Inspired by New York City’s ‘High Line” transit track converted park, Los Angeles has proposed plans for a High Line park on the west coast, in the neighboring Port of Wilmington.

“The new park, designed by San Francisco– and Boston-based Sasaki Associates, will stretch 3,000 feet wide and slope in an angular fashion from a flat area known as the Great Lawn up to about 15 feet above grade, with a walkway along the top—labeled the Paseo—affording views of the Port’s massive shipping containers as well as the ocean in the distance.”

OHWOW Book Club

July 6th, 2010

The OHWOW Book Club is located below street level in a landmarked historic brownstone on Waverly Place. Taking up only 150 sq ft, this little store was designed by de Cárdenas to echo a classic black and white, pre-war NYC bathroom.  The store is a little crazy, but completely Fitting of OHWOW’s vision.
