CLICK THROUGH to read my most recent article on Narratively, which is a piece focusing specifically on the fishing community that I have photographed for my (a)Bonac series.  I teamed up with fellow journalist Doug Kuntz who has been working with the community for 30 years and together we present some words and pictures about some of my favorite folks.

Station to Station is a project organized by artist Doug Aitken.  The whole happening kicks off on September 6th in NYC, but before the train leaves the station they asked a few fancy folks to contribute their travel photos to the website.  ”Wherever I Am” is a collection of photos and memories from some of my favorite creative people.  I’m also thrilled someone other than me is interested in what makes this fish so sassy.  CLICK HERE to check out the entry.
