hello world

so i’m officially living in new york interning for the one and only VII Photo Agency … my duties entail sifting through thousands of images from around the world, putting together collections for clients (woe is me). i’ve officially fallen in love with alexandra boulat and joachim lagedfold…. but more than all others.. eugene richards is the modern day walker evans.. the predecessor to boogie … eugene is the definitive street photographer, and does the important job of reminding americans of our flaws and weaknesses, but also our amazing ability to persevere.

so basically the internship is dope, and i work across the street from the Fashion Institute of Technology.. basically the student body is FIT (chuckle chuckle), and its nice to sit on the steps and watch people.

here are a few frames from the first few days in the big city. i’m currently living in Astoria, and will be shooting the neighborhood because it has this amazing summer energy.. the air has a sweet smell to it, and the pavement is worn smooth from the generations of neighborhood kids on summer break.

peace and love.. from my borrough to yours.
