Force of Attraction

Oh my. How much do I love this photo? Beautiful. Striking. Perfection. See more of photographer Pej Behdarvand's work here and read the article on Miss Ritter here.

P.S. Check out Behdarvand's awesome photos of the geniuses behind Flight of the Conchords, too, while you're at it.).

The Photographer Is Also Present

Check out this great blog post from the Year in Pictures about the photographer behind the scenes of the performance art piece “Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present” at The Museum of Modern Art. I first encountered her work, I hate to say it, in a Sex in the City episode.

It was really fun to see this piece in person.

Drew Danburry

Thanks to a post by Black Eiffel, I've become completely obsessed with the song "Nirvana By Kurt Cobain" from Drew Danburry. You can listen to it here.

You can also read about Danburry's inspiration for the song here.

2010 VCTC Urban Environmental Challenge 10K

I had the pleasure of being at Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx last Sunday, April 11th to shoot the Van Cortlandt Track Club's Urban Environmental Challenge 10K. It's a great race - participants run through the woods, over logs and through streams. Everyone has a blast. Photos can be found here.

I went to the AIPAD Photography Show on Sunday, March 21st. It's a show I look forward to all year. I found the photographs this year to be a tad on the safe side - and I wonder if the state of the economy has anything to do with it. As always, however, there was some truly stunning work on display. Here are a few examples:
