Recently I was in Rockland and Owl’s Head, Maine photographing Primo Restaurant. Emily Lowe, a college classmate, is the head vegetable grower. Her days are filled with planting seeds, harvesting vegetables from the gardens and greenhouses and assisting with planning the menu based on the results. The chef, Melissa Kelly, is a James Beard Award winner and she kind enough to allow me in to … Continue reading Primo
Congrats to Bresca for making Conde Nast magazine’s hot list, joining a prestigious list of 105 other restaurants from AROUND THE WORLD. It’s been a pleasure working with Krista Kern, who has been nothing but gracious. I had some hint that there would be a mention as she’d asked me to return to Bresca after my initial photographs were made to shoot more. Alas, the … Continue reading Bresca/The Kitchens Project

New year, new exhibition. Three of my photos will be included in the annual Maine College of Art staff exhibition at the June Fitzpatrick Gallery at MECA. The work is a little different from what I typically show, but it didn’t feel like either the right venue or time to show the still untitled hate crime/speech work.
I also designed the postcard. Over Christmas I noticed it was upside down on my mother’s refrigerator, always a good sign. The image is from the inside of the Porteous building in the 30’s or 40’s, I also added the store’s logo. It’s a bit of an homage to Warhol’s purposely, mis-registered screen prints (like it wasn’t obvious).
It is First Friday that night, so make the rounds and load up on free wine, cheese and crackers – oh yeah, and see some artwork too.

I’ve begun working on a new photography project with my friend Danielle Askini. She’s a writer, social worker and a trainer for The Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence (not to mention one of my favorite people). The idea for this project began while I was working on my family’s genealogy. As it turns out a few racist words were actually created on Ellis … Continue reading Collaborative Project/Site (Update II)
