The gentleman with the Cyclone hat is lucky enough to have a brother who makes him a Coney Island hat every year for the Polar Bear Plunge. See previous years here and here.

Harlem Shake | Harlem, New York

Last year I had the distinct pleasure of shooting a piece my husband wrote for New York Family (he was hands-down one of my very best clients). You can read it here.

Jazz Age | Governors Island | August 2012

I brought an old Canon AE-1 with me to the Jazz Age Lawn Party back in 2012. Unfortunately, half way through the day the camera completely died. Never to be resurrected again. RIP Canon AE-1. You can see photos from previous Jazz Age Lawn Parties here and here

The Cow Takes Manhattan | Manhattan | March 2004

Back in 2004 I entered a photography contest (I believe it was for Time Out NY). The editors requested a photo series that "represented New York" and was "quintessential New York."  Now, I have no idea why "quintessential New York" translated to a cow wandering the streets of New York to me, but apparently, that's what came to mind. Needless to say, I didn't win the contest. Not even an honorable mention! Anyway, I can hardly believe that these were taken ten years ago. I love looking at the people in the shots and being reminded that there was a time, not so long ago, when the masses had no camera phones, no Instagram, no twitter and were left to just talk about it, with maybe a stack of photos developed at a drug store, this sighting of a lost cow, wandering the mean streets of Manhattan. 

All shot on a Pentax K1000 on Kodak.

Jazz Age | Governors Island | August 2013


 I was lucky enough to attend the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governors Island not once but twice last year. Photos from the June 2013 Jazz Age Lawn Party can be found here, if you'd like to see.

Lower East Side - New York City Photographer

Last year I had the opportunity to tour several NYC public elementary schools. It was a fairly nerve-wracking experience. In order to alleviate some of the anxiety, I brought my K1000 with me and explored the areas surrounding the schools. First up, the Lower East Side.
