Playin some quiet, serious, slow ass music in Allston, MA back in March. 

This was so pleasant. Room full of people I love and respect so much, ahh, heart swells. You get to see me out of focus but definitely grinning like an idiot in the back for the first few seconds. ~swoonin’~

“Today, the tradition of photographers making somber, dignified portraits of poor people—the clichéd yet steadfastly popular kind where we are meant to interpret the dignity of these kind but struggling folks through their bright, crisp eyes—needs a reconsideration. Not only is this type of work uninteresting; it is actually offensive. Its aesthetic agenda is to pronounce, in a heavy-handed way, a judgment of goodness on its subject (i.e. “look into the eyes of this kind man; do not judge, for he is poor but good; he is your equal”). Traditionally, this has been a safe, widely condoned documentary strategy, but it is ultimately uninteresting—and unfaithful to the complexity of reality—to wrap people up into such a neat package of comprehensibility. Furthermore, this strategy is founded on two faulty premises—that the photographer knows his/her subject well enough to claim his/her dignity, and that the photographer has the ethical authority/superiority to make a judgment of goodness.”Gregory HalpernOn Documentary Ethics' at American Suburb X

“Maybe photography can’t live up to experience. Maybe photography steals away – or sullies – the preciousness of memory.” —Pete Brook

1. Tell us about your approach to photography. How it all started? What are your memories of your first shots?

My mother handed me the family point-and-pray 35mm Kodak camera at my sister’s 8th grade graduation. It was my job to finish out the roll of 24-exposure film so we…
