  1. Living My Best Life: My Week As A TruLife Acrylic Feature Photographer

    28 Feb 2018

    Way back in 2016 I wrote an article for LightStalking that addressed a few options that are available for people who want to make fine art prints – you know, metal, canvas, acrylic. It was a relatively popular article, but it lived its life, served its purpose, and everyone moved on…

    14 Jul 2017

    Repost of a piece I originally wrote for Lightstalking.com Commenting on the Hungarian-French photographer known as Brassai (Gyula Halasz), Henry Miller proclaimed that he was a man “equipped with no ordinary eyes.” According to Miller, Brassai’s “sharpness of vision and depth of insight are revealed in” his “photographic exploration” of…


  6. The Meaning of Life

    27 Jun 2017

    Many people, upon their first encounter with the often scantily clad, curiously unkempt Matthew Silver, assume he’s crazy. I assure you he is not. On second thought, maybe Mattew Silver is crazy — crazy about being alive. And he just wants everyone to live and love out loud like he…

    So, the Tribeca Film Festival happened (April 19-30, 2017). If you’re not familiar, the Tribeca Film Festival was established in 2002, purportedly as a means of helping to revitalize the area (Triangle Below Canal Street) in the aftermath of 9/11.

    28 Apr 2017

    As progressive and liberal as New York is, it is by no means a city devoid of administrative and law enforcement corruption. In fact, when you pull back the spirited, cultured blanket many of us live under, you will discover a long history of political misconduct. While NYC has achieved…

    25 Apr 2017

    Oh, Ilford SFX 200, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways Ok, I’m not going to actually count the ways. Just know that I do love this quasi-infrared black and white film. SFX 200 often comes up in conversations about infrared film and almost just as frequently…

  12. One for the Money: Agfa Vista Plus 200

    08 Apr 2017

    Kodak gets all the love: Portra 160 and 400, Ektar 100, Tri-X 400. And if it’s not Kodak, it’s Ilford and Fujifilm that get to bask in the warm glow of film emulsion prestige. Those are indeed big names and they have unquestionably earned their reputations as great film manufacturers, but…
