I made this portrait of A$AP Ferg for NPR Music last month using a gridded speedlight in a dark corner at NPR HQ. These five minute portraits sometimes make me nervous but he was a total delight. I think the best thing you can do is immediately get too close — the worst pictures, to me, are the ones that are coolly distant for no real reason. What a guy.
Made some candid portraits of Dipset backstage before their reunion show last month and then photograph their performance from the stage. It was tight. Hell Rell showed up. Hey Juelz. Sup Jim. Hi Killa. Freeky!
probably the prettiest live picture i’ve taken in a long time — this was taken standing on the stage after action had climbed into the audience and then onto the bar at bb king’s. what a great show
I photographed the protests here in NYC after the decision came down to not indict Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. Things got intense once the march reached Times Square and there were a fair number of arrests, but overall the demonstrations stayed peaceful. Proud of my city.
The intersection of Sixth Ave. and 34th St… The march effectively shut down traffic in Herald Square.
