Grandpa thought I was photographing his cat. I’m so sneaky (deceptive?). So very sneaky.

Dr. Trayes’ Photo Seminar Class walked around Philly armed with a camera, two flashes, a black background, and one question — what is the one piece of advice you want to share with us? This is their reciprocal wisdom.

Sean (Left): “Don’t go into the entertainment industry for money.”

Clare (Center): “Climb the highest mountain. Reach its peak. Build a rocket ship and soar higher. It’s always about trying to be the best you can be. Once you get there be even better than that.”

Tom (Right): “Today’s solutions are tomorrow’s problems. Remember that one. Human beings go bumbling and stumbling through the universe, through time, but it’s still interesting and lots of fun. Don’t expect too much, but enjoy it.”


My best friend Walbert Young, the artist at 26. Walbert was a doll and gets all the credit for post production on this piece, even though he was understandably stubborn about editing together his own interview.

In coalescence with our Waste Exhibit, the Wisdom Exhibit is on display in Temple University’s Annenberg Hall until Friday, April 27.

I’m creating a book! And it’s my most personal of personal projects to date, the book of Ono, PA, my hometown of 122 people. I’m attempting to photograph every one of them and have shot 101 to date. Here are a few of my favorite portraits thus far.

Ono, PA

My buddy Matt Wallace was born without eyeballs. Here are some preliminary shots from a project we are working on documenting his life and interactions.

Place where I am from, from whence I came.

If looks could kill.. lucky for me this death stare made the shot. Love strangers, love this city.

If I had to choose a recent favorite, this might be it. Love this moment!
