Hi Friends -
Heading into fall I'd like to share with you a few recent soulful projects that I'm happy to have photographed.
This season is a time of reflection and my personal new year with my arrival into this world October 4. The change in colors of the season is a reminder of an inevitable will for growth. This definitely rings true as my partner and I are expecting our first child in December :]
Hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my work
When I was in architecture school, I created a few large watercolors of this fantastic space while dreamily losing myself in google image searches while it snowed outside my dark basement studio.
Over the summer while I was in the Italian Alps I made the trek. The Therme Vals by Peter Zumthor was a formative influence on my perception of spatial and tactile experiences from an early age. Despite no cameras allowed, I managed to hide a sizable medium format camera and a few film rolls in my robe without being scolded.
In August I spent a day running around the city with a small team including stylist Savannah White to add some color and life to the apparel for the NYTimes Store. Inspired by the feel of my Home For Now series, they wanted the sublime and subtle on the streets of NYC. I'm thankful to all that helped bring this quick and fun project together.
475 Kent Ave

@fvonf commissioned me to go inside and photograph the lives and spaces of four creatives at 475 Kent Ave - an 11-story artist's loft building in Williamsburg that is the last of its kind thanks to the glacially paced wave of gentrification that's swept the area in the past decade.
There's a newsprint out into the wild that should be landing on desks anytime now. Be on the lookout! If you'd like a copy but didn't receive one - please get in touch.
