  1. Look here

    30 Sep 2019

    Look Here, Los Angeles, 2018 I’m fighting the impulse that people–a vast majority of people by my humble reckoning–are not capable of deciding what is in their best interest.  Maybe my attitude is a product of the twenty-four-hour-cable-news-cycle-pandemic that’s currently infecting anyone with the remotest interest in current events.  It’s…

  2. Muse-ums

    17 Sep 2019

    Muse-ums, LA 2018 There’s a quick simple story behind this image that I rather like.  I made this image during a trip to the Marciano to see Yayoi Kusama’s ”with all my love for the tulips, I pray forever.”   We were just about to leave the exhibit after having shot…

  3. Gleaming the cube

    05 Sep 2019

    Gleaming the cube, Los Angeles 2019 I fell in love with the works of Ai WeiWei over the course of last year.  I was late to the party–something that my friend Tim was more than eager to point out.  I hadn’t seen Disposition and when I saw Forever, photographing both…

  4. Size matters

    16 Jul 2018

    “Size Matters” Los Angeles 2018 This will be a simple, cheery post for a weekend that has over-flowed with a wide-variety of naps.  I’ve taken quick naps, long naps and medium-length naps.  I’ve had naps on the couch, naps on my bed and even a nap on the floor.  I…

  5. Not like the others

    03 Jul 2018

    “Not like the others” New Orleans, 2018 I was walking through the sculpture garden right outside NOMA when I turned a corner and came across this installation.  At first it didn’t dawn on me that the life-like statue in-living-color was actually a real human being.  He was being so still…

  6. An Ending

    11 Nov 2017

    “An End” The image says a lot but not the whole story.  Since the early days of scientific exploration, coinciding with European imperialism, we white people have done whatever we deemed nessecary at the time to further our empires and our fortunes.  We have always perpetrated these crimes of progress…

  7. Twinning

    31 Oct 2017

    “Twinning” Here’s another attempt at seeing what’s happening around me instead of looking for the image I’m expecting to make.  I walked into the LACMA book store right after the guy in the picture.  Anna Maria and the kids were already wondering around inside looking at books and posters and…

  8. Head shrinking

    24 Oct 2017

    “Head shrinking” I’ve been trying to see things differently.  I’m trying to really look at what’s happening around me and to not see what I’m expecting to see.  I feel like I’m missing things, important things that are worthy of finding and exploring are happening and it’s not for want…

  9. Grumpy old men

    23 Oct 2017

    “Grumpy old men” I followed the gentleman in the photograph for a while.  I liked his suit and bald head and didn’t quite understand the bag, but then again I didn’t really need to.  I found him interesting and I thought he will make an interesting subject in what I…

  10. What it’s all about

    22 Oct 2017

    “What it’s all about” You put your left foot inYou take your left foot outYou put your left foot inAnd you shake it all aboutYou do the hokey pokeyAnd you turn yourself aroundThat’s what it’s all about I really have no idea what this guy was doing.  I’m guessing he…

  11. One by one

    20 Oct 2017

    “One by one” The story behind this image is more anecdotal than anything but at the same time a testament to how sheep-like we humans can be at times–or at least how sheep like I can be at times.   I had just walked out of the LA/LA exhibit at LACMA…
