Struggling Elements

Did you realize we are still here, you thought we are useless…

The beauty cannot be defined.  It’s time for a new prospective.

Can you see you are the one who can save us? Our fate is in your hands.

Models: Edo and Alexandra

Wardrobe: David Morgan

Location: Green Spaces

Clothing: Ryann, SDN and vintage pieces (stylist’s own)

Accessories and props: Stylist’s own

Inspired by beautiful sustainable artwork of Susan Benarcik in Green Space in SoHo, I created a story of ‘Struggling Elements’, portraying the trial of our natural envionment we are witnessing.

We are often discouraged by ‘how little’ we each can do but that same little effort by each artists at Green Spaces ignited my creativity!  These guiding lights are around us always, as long as we choose to see them… well, we can even be one by doing our little thing here and there.

All Wrapped Around

December 16, 2009

Sustainable clothing designer, Raina Blyer of Ryann launched her 2nd line, Creem this Fall.  Her launch event at R Bar in LES for this organic active wear line featured NYC performers, like caporaira dancers, contortionist, house dancer and pole dancer to show off just how ‘active’ you can be in her super comfy and feel-good fabric of choice and design.

I mean, you can bend, kick and fly without anything falling out of these super mini bra-top and shorts?  I bet not many of us are doing much more in our active wear than this awesome pole dancer, agreed?

Roots

Whoever tells me there is no difference between film and digital photography, they must be blind, or they don’t know how to look.

I have previously put (somewhat of) same photos of MOE on this blog but they were shot using my digital camera.  Do you see the difference?  That’s why I always go back taking photos using my semi-ancient camera, hey I am an artists and I should do what makes my art better.  In this case, shooting film = going back to my roots.

Blacksnow Back & Front stage…

KaylaSuperCamoNot your average Tin ManWhite MagicInto the lightI just got lucky.  I had my camera with me to see the BlackSnow show the other day and I happen to document their back stage as well as them on stage, I mean, I really got lucky…

Black TheMicahLight + Opie Snow creates this super-duper clothing line, all of them are custom-made, one-of -a-kind pieces made by the designers themselves.  I just don’t have good enough vocabulary to describe how freakin’ AWESOME their things are, so you just have to see them for your self.  I bet you, you won’t quite find the word either, because it’s that new…

Something New

Abigail RamosBrick CitySometimes, we just have to do something new to open up the door.   Obscure subjects and rather abstract images might be something what people remember my photographs by but not this time…

These are from the photo shoot for Abigail Ramos jewelry, custom-hand-made jewelry line.  She searches and collects coins, stones, little statuettes and metal pieces to create uniquely beautiful and earthy collection of jewelry, right her in Brooklyn.

For more of her jewelry line, visit her blogsite at http://www.abigailramos.wordpress.com.  Remember, all of her pieces are one-of-a-kind pieces, don’t hesitate to contact her to acquire her waerable artwork before someone else does!!

Bed-Stuy Alive, for sure

October 18, 2009

BlowJust in caseJohn was hereThe days of ‘do-or-die’ seem to be far away nowadays.  The Restoration Rocks brought many talents and beautiful people from the neighborhood, it was buoyant and amicable.  Sure, it was the first cold day of the season (yes, I have to put on my winter coat in Oct…) but this was one of those things you don’t think about leaving.

What can I say, I love my hood.  Bed-Stuy Alive, for sure.
