Ahh...The Met

The Met. Also known as 'my church'. Walking through these halls you can feel the presence of human greatness. The miracles and holiness of the universe are revealed in these halls. This is where I feel the potentiality of connecting to the "Other", and in so doing every living thing. The sense of awe that one experiences here is all too familiar to a religious person. So what can art do from here?

This hall has a specific overwhelming presence when you consider what an ancient civilization accomplished. Like a church cathedral this hall, home to The Temple of Dendur, was designed to inspire a sense of wonder and heighten the senses to leave us open for the beauty that surrounds us. And surely to crack the surface of all the beauty inside of us also.

Lincoln Center 2016

Most dance photographers would love to have the access to these dancers that I get. I consider myself incredibly grateful to live and work amongst a group of generous artists who have dedicated their lives to something so great. These days I think they've grown used to me spying on them with my camera. So here's a collection of images I made during our three week run at the David H Koch theater at Lincoln Center. All photographs were taken with an iPhone6 plus in the Obscuracamera app. A few were edited in Snapseed.

New Series: Piano Movers

I started work on a new series with some of my Taylor people. These are in the experimental phase. The final products will be much simpler. Thought it might be fun to post these of James Samson. More to follow in the next few months leading up to our Lincoln Center Season in March 2015.
