Kaya Lee Berne, my all around keep my life straight first assistant, has come to my home to help me set my darkroom for the 100 8×10 prints I will personally print for the limited edition version of my upcoming Tell It Like It Is. While we are mixing chemicals for the darkroom we are here testing the Leica Monochrom up against the Fuji x100T set on b&w mode. This Instagram shot is the Monochrom shot which does have a file the Fuji cannot match . Right out of the camera the monochrome looks like an exhibition print yes even…

Emerging Photographer Fund 2015

Photo ©Vivian Maier Vivian Maier was a remarkable woman. When this self portrait was made Vivian was 29. An emerging photographer nobody knew. Vivian is to be admired for her self deprecation. She just took pictures. She worked from the heart.

Rio is Over

Rio de Janeiro. It’s over. Done. I still have a day or so to be here to finish my BeachGames zine, yet I know I’m done. It’s a let down to come out of the zone. Drug addict. So I will need another fix as soon as I can. Yet now I must flip. Go from pure passion to pure production and get things moving with layout and printing. I must go from dreamer to decider. Both work for me. Still mostly I will be searching for my next dream. ‪#‎beachgames‬ ‪#‎rio‬‪#‎leica‬ ‪#‎monochrom‬ ‪#‎burnmagazine‬
