Midnight in the Garden Slideshow

Midnight in the Garden Slideshow


Many thanks to those that came out to Campos Community Garden on E. 12th Street to see my community garden work actually projected in a garden.

My "Magic Gardens" series has been rechristened "Midnight in the Garden: Photographs from the Community Gardens of the East Village and Lower East Side" and is an ongoing project documenting all of the areas community gardens (over 50) for an eventual publication. 

The event was part of the Closing Party for the Harvest Arts Festival in the Gardens and after my talk the slides played on a loop all night long to live music by the great LES legend Ray Santiago!

Dear Friends, I hope that everyone is having a great summer! Here is a little update on some of my activities. First, I would like to thank everyone who came out physically (and in spirit) for  my exhibition, 色色 Iro Iro: The Colors  of Japan After Dark. It was really great to be able to exhibit this body of work!

As some of you may know, after a nice run of showing for several years at Ernden Fine Art Gallery in Provincetown on Cape  Cod,  MA, the gallery  closed its doors in  2013. 

This season, I am really excited to  once again be exhibiting in  Provincetown at  "A Gallery", one of my favorite galleries in town.  
I will be showing new work along with a few images from my 2008 book  "Blue Nights"  which I worked on with author Norman Mailer. 
I know that this is an FYI for many of you but please help spread  the word and stop by if you are in the area!  Best to all!
