Richard Long at the Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires – Mendoza Walking

I recently had the privilege to meet Richard Long, as I was hired to shoot his installations at the Faena Arts Center before opening to the public.Just came across this link to an article in Wallpaper about the exhibition.  

Shigeru Ban wins 2014 Pritzker Prize

In 2007, on an assignment by the New York Times Magazine to cover many of Shigeru Ban’s buildings, I was fortunate to travel extensively through Japan for almost two weeks. This allowed me to see other parts of the country besides Tokyo, as we visited the Paper Art Museum in Shizuoka, a private home called […]

Architectural Digest June Issue / Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects

This was one of those remarkable photo shoots where I had the opportunity to spend two days with the architect himself. To say Tod Williams is “hands on” would be an understatement in this case. Within minutes upon his arrival Tod was rolling up his sleeves and moved, with the help of the owner, my […]

Daniel Libeskind: 18.36.54 house, Connecticut

As I need to bridge an enormous gap between my last post and NOW, may as well start with what is most current: This morning, designboom (according to their own description “the first and largest independent publication dedicated to architecture and design”) ran a very image rich article on the only private residence ever built […]

Recent work in NY Times Style Magazine, Architectural Digest and Harper’s Bazaar

1100 Architect / Kelly Klein / Anita Calero / Architectural Digest / Full circles…

Starting to wonder if I need to hire someone to keep my site current. My last post was in April… So much has happened, not quite sure how to recap. Why not start with this: I have a story in the August issue of Architectural Digest that is significant to me on several different levels. […]

When is a Peep not a Peep?

Read Amy Kellner’s Blog post on my experience at the Just Born factory in Bethlehem, PA. The “proper” article on the production of Peeps is coming out this Sunday in the New York Times Magazine.  

Aspen to Denver

I just finished a shoot for Architectural Digest in Aspen. I was working with Michael Reynolds, whom I have known “forever”, dating back to my days as a photo assistant. I have always known, that apart from being a great stylist/designer/editor, he can be hilariously funny, but this time around I actually learned that he […]

Fashion Week Addendum

As I am catching up with my Sunday New York Times, I read this great article summing up the week’s events, echoing some of my own feelings and observations. My favorite quote in Guy Trebay’s article is by RoseLee Goldberg, art historian and director of the performance art-biennial Performa : “No one looks hard enough […]

Fashion Week NY

Over a coffee at the Mercer Hotel about three weeks ago, Marcelo Junemann, founder & editor in chief of BIG magazine, asked me if I was interested in “covering” one or two of the shows during fashion week in New York. I really had to give it a few minutes of thought. At that point […]

Public Chicago Hotel by Ian Schrager

Here is an interesting write up by Pilar Viladas of the New York Times Magazine on Ian Schrager’s latest endeavor, the Public Hotel in Chicago. Her article is accompanied by some of my pictures I have taken for the hotel. I am now in my 12th year taking pictures of Ian Schrager’s projects, and I […]

Tom Kundig Lecture

On Wednesday, I attended a lecture by Tom Kundig at the New York Public Library. He recently published his second book called Houses 2,  featuring 17 residential projects, of which two I had photographed (Montecito, CA and Sitges, Spain) and some of those pictures had been included in the book. Admittedly, I have not attended […]

My past seven weeks:

San Diego, Helsinki, Chicago, Buenos Aires, Jamaica, Bilbao, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Berlin = 359 GB unprocessed raw files (stills only, no video data) I received this email from American Airlines while traveling, which made me appreciate the number 1 Million (during times where people own billions and countries owe trillions) in a refreshing new way: […]
