Take This Hammer

I’ve been listening to a lot of Lead Belly lately while I work. His voice makes my skin tingle. Makes my feet tap. Gets me goin.

just for fun… a side-by-side comparison

I gave a presentation of my work at the Convent of the Sacred Heart school in Manhattan this past week. The students were really excited about the musicians series, and really wanted to hear what the music sounded like. So, I dredged up this video footage that Heart Montalbano took from my unorganized computer files. We looked at the video footage and the tintype side by side, and the kids thought it was a funny comparison, and I rather enjoyed the comparison myself, so I figured I’d post it. You know, just for the heck of it.

My Morning Jacket shoot with Danny Clinch

Some time in late February, I got the opportunity to work with photographer Danny Clinch.

Danny had called me up earlier that month with the idea to photograph My Morning Jacket in wet plate. I was totally game to help out. So, I rounded up my gear, stuffed it into my trusty vehicle, and headed for Industria Studios.

It was a bitter cold, completely sunless New York winter kind of day. My car was parked half-in, half-out of the studio so that I could work from the trunk of my car – (which is where my darkroom is.)

I had a great time working with Danny. He has a great, inexhaustible energy that is totally contagious.
