1-2. Alternate images from a shoot at Persons of Interest, Williamsburg, originally featured on The Scout.

Hope you all are well and perhaps enjoying a mild winter like we are up here in New York.
Not much to report other than some travels and shoots coming up this month which I’m excited for.

RE: Inspiration
I used to have a Tumblr page.
That became a little stale and I moved my inspirational imagery over to Pinterest.
But I’ll be darned if I didn’t feel a little nostalgia for dear old tumblr.
So I started a new one.
Follow here.

And below, some recent i-net scourings and my much belated year-end music list.

My apologies for the lack of content. I’ve been traveling in rampant fashion and haven’t much down time nor a decent internet connection. All safe and sound now in the lovely throes of fall in NYC. Looking forward to the coming of snow, holidays and perfect winter light. For now, here are some outtakes from my travels.

1. Sint-Elisabethkerk’s attic in Gent, Belgium

2. Boat on riverbank in Düdingen, Switzerland

Don’t mean to overplay this, but the first installment of Kinfolk is just too gorgeous. I received my copy last week and had to document the process.  The first issue sold out before it was even officially released! Nathan & co. deserve many hip-hips and hurrahs.

In other news, the annual summer “heat wave” has descended upon greater NYC and things are balmy to say the least.
A slew of new posts are waiting in the wings, keep posted. Happy Wednesday!
