Broken Windows, NYC, 1992, Book Cover 2012

This summer was the 20th anniversary of hurricane Andrew slamming into my home of Miami, Florida.  When I wanted to write a piece about the hurricane’s aftermath I led me to open up an old portfolio of mine.  Looking at some of my old hand printed images got me thinking about some of my past projects I completed in my early 20s.  The first one that came to mind was the project Broken Windows.

Broken Windows is a collection of work that I completed in 1992.  All of the photographs were taken using a single use panoramic camera (disposable camera) that had been reloaded and taped up with black gaffers tape.  All of the 35mm images were developed and printed in a wet darkroom.  I took all the images that I had printed and composed a book.  It was limited to an edition 35, and was compiled and printed at my local Kinkos.  At the time that was the only way that was feasible to be able to print, and distribute.  I had always wanted to print a higher quality book, but that was just out of my means at the time.

As we jump forward to 2012, I thought that it was important to revisit this work.  I wanted to understand the photographer that I was in order to navigate the artist I am becoming.  I found my original prints from 1992 and scanned them into my computer.  Thanks to the wonders of Blurb, I was able to print a book that showed the details within each photograph.

Guns and Peace from Japan Scope March 2008

Monday, December 12th, 2011

I came across another publication of mine that had been put aside until I unearthed it while doing my end of the year cleaning.  This one is from Japan Scope Magazine and was published in March 2008 Vol. 17.  It was a feature issue that focused on a glimpse of Japan through foreign eyes and lots of fresh photographs to go with it.  I don’t think the magazine is still being published.  It is kind of nice to find something that I had forgotten about for so long.

Enjoy my view on the Guns & Peace society of Japan.
