  1. Mardi Gras 2018

    10 Sep 2018

    I spoke to Bruce Guilden at the opening night of his “GO” show opening a couple years back.  While talking, I mentioned that my favorite book of his was his monograph on Mardi Gras, “Hey Mister, throw me some beads.”  In what was quickly becoming a trend of that conversation, he…


  2. Gentle monster

    31 Jul 2018

    Gentle Monster close, Los Angeles  2017 Gentle Monster far, Los Angeles  2017 On the day that I made these images, I remember thinking that I had never experienced a sun shining so bright–nor, for that matter, had I ever seen concrete reflect as much lights as Broadway was currently endeavoring to do that late…


  3. 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 napped…


  4. 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…


  5. Hairy Scary

    12 Jan 2018

    “Hairy Scary” Santa Monica 2017 The idea for this image came in a flash.  Ella and I were sitting in the living room.  I was reading the Sunday New York Times and Ella was behind me, on the other side of the room brushing her hair with what could only…


  6. Low

    09 Jan 2018

    “Low” Venice Beach 2017 One of the best parts about living where I live is that I’m only a stones throw from the Venice Beach boardwalk.  Venice is seething with images just begging to be made and time after time when I head down there, close to sunset with a…


  7. Behind

    04 Jan 2018

    “Behind” Carson, 2017 Over the break I’ve taken some time to edit.  I’ve tried to be brutally honest with myself and the result has left me feeling a little conflicted.  Of my last 250-300 or so pictures I had pulled perhaps 20-30 selects.  That puts my hit rate in the…


  8. Hail to the Chief

    22 Dec 2017

    “Hail to the Chief” Venice 2017 I’ve been sick and upset and not in the mood to post here or on Insta.  I haven’t even really been in the mood to be a citizen of the United States or even a human of earth lately.  I have a sinus infection and inflamed lungs due…


  9. A is for accident

    07 Dec 2017

    “A is for accident” On the days leading up to that trip to Ikea a couple weeks back, I had an aching feeling.  Anyone who has shot long enough with the same camera–especially film cameras with a bevy of mechanical bits–can tell you with some degree of accuracy when something isn’t…


  10. There

    28 Nov 2017

    “There” Time for something different.  I need to stop raging about the world for a few minutes and have a little bit of light-hearted, old fashioned enjoyment, if even only for a minute or two.  I may or may not have mentioned that I’m trying to shoot a little more…


  11. Hello, Hej

    17 Nov 2017

    “Hello, hej” “Mirror mirror… mirror…” “Twin size bed” If you’ve spent most of your adult life in Sweden and then moved abroad, it’s a moral imperative to locate your closest Ikea the second you come up for air.  It’s a law actually… in the Swedish constitution.  Given that subconscious mandate we find ourselves, from time…


  12. Shadows and legs

    14 Nov 2017

    “Shadows and legs” I made this image on a Sunday a while back.  AM and I had just picked up the girls in Century City and were headed to the Farmer’s Market in Beverly Hills for some fresh produce and then to the library so Ester could take-out a few books.  The…


  13. Metroreflex and other nearest misses

    13 Nov 2017

    “The Driver” “Metroreflex” “Meanwhile on the red line” “Doritos” “Sunbeam” “LVR” “See something say something” “Nap time” Here’s another batch of images that were all about to hit the edit room floor.  They span the course of the last few years with the earliest being in September of 2015 and the…


  14. At the end of the day

    03 Nov 2017

    “Trifecta” “Smoke shop” “Ladder” “Curious boys” “Bike your walk” I love the sunsets here in Santa Monica and I don’t get out as often as I wish to shoot in that glorious light.  During the summer it’s a bit easier since sunset comes just late enough that I can make it out…


  15. 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 hoped would…


  16. 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…


  17. 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 in a pretty good mood.  The…


  18. Estranged

    14 Oct 2017

    “Estranged” I don’t know how long they had been drifting apart.  It could have started last week or last year or last time they really talked.  But it had happened at some point and all that really matters is that it would have happened no matter what they did.  I…


  19. Arrivals

    11 Oct 2017

    “Arrivals” I’ve been out in Palmdale and Lancaster shooting for work and I haven’t had a chance to post for a couple days.  I’ve missed it actually.  There’s something therapeutic about trying to write a few words every day about the real work you make in your life–the passions you…
