Back On Monday
Happy New Year everyone. Three days rest and the jet lag has worn off. There are a few more espressos between me and normalcy, but I am excited to be back in NYC. The trip to Matera was a big surprise. Most of the people I consulted before the trip recommended we stay a day or so in this small Medieval town. I could have stayed for at least a month. The hillside caves were a seductive place to spend the New Year and the winding streets were a fantastic setting for street photography.
Starting on Monday the articles will be flowing once again. Picking up where we left off, our quest to understand Cartier-Bresson’s Surrealist roots will continue followed by:
- My impressions of Matera through its faces and history
- A strange story of a Leica stolen from a German factory during the war
- More “Great Compositions” leading off with Rene Burri
- Announcements for my upcoming workshops with Eric Kim, here in NYC
- And an update on a project I started towards the end of the year called OnSite, a portrait series of NYC Construction Workers.
Lets raise a glass to those mysterious Mayan’s and welcome in 2012 together!
