Prime Collective

I'm over-the-top excited to announce that, after a good year of hard work, I'm part of an amazing group of photographers launching a collective today called Prime. The six of us - Dominic Bracco II, Melanie Burford, Charlie Mahoney, Lance Rosenfield, Max Whittaker, and myself - are eager to explore the possibilities of collaboration and the collective model. For now, head over to Prime's website and have a look around. If you like what you see, spread the word!

Best of 2010

I thought I'd follow the trend and, as I begin the process of looking back at my year to prep contest entries, share some of my favorite images from 2010.

Tough Weekend

This weekend I flew home to be with my family at a difficult time. My cousin's young son passed away last week at the age of 4 due to complications with an epilepsy-like condition, believed (but not conclusively) to perhaps be a form of leukodystrophy. The kid was a fighter but everybody has their limits, unfortunately. Being asked to take photographs during the wake and burial seriously tested my ability to photograph thoughtfully during intense situations, and the grief of his parents was only offset by the knowledge that he had the best care possible. You can get a sense of how much support he had by reading my cousin's blog, Letters to Jakey. I tell you all this mainly in the hopes someone will be moved, per the family's wishes, to send donations to the Massachusetts General Hospital Pediatric Epilepsy Program, c/o Dr. Elizabeth Thiele, 175 Cambridge Street, Suite 340, Boston, MA 02114.

Haiti Relief Auction

Many months ago, I was approached by photographer Marc Baptiste to donate some pictures to a charity auction he was organizing to benefit a number of relief organizations working in Haiti. I jumped at the opportunity and am very pleased that the exhibition and auction will soon take place. The launch party for the exhibition is coming up on December 16 from 7-11pm in New York City (check out the invitation here), and you can see all the work available for purchase, including mine, over at CharityBuzz. For those who would like a bit of background information, here you go.

Go on over and bid on some art!

Back Again from Haiti

I returned almost a week ago from another trip to Haiti, where I covered the presidential elections and expanded on my coverage of the cholera outbreak there.
