1. Bobby Gold

    I stumbled upon a man named Bobby Orange who was preaching about God and creation among some skateboarders at Rochester’s Liberty Pole today. He was saying things like, “God took one blood and made all colors,” “Salvation is in your heart and in your body and in your soul”. He explained to me in a southern drawl that he “found the spirit” on March 29 1958. He ended with “We comin’ home and we…

    A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing the Dixon Schwabl family during their weekly Sunday dinner. For those of you who are not familiar with the Dixon Schwabl name, Lauren Dixon and Mike Schwabl are the CEO and president respectively of the prestigious local advertising agency Dixon Schwabl.

    The whole family was a group of really wonderful, very kind and gracious people. And…

  5. Off-Season Chautauqua

    Today I ventured down to Chautauqua Institution where I will be interning this summer at the Chautauquan Daily. It is a very peculiar little community. It is a very quaint, idyllic village on the shore of Chautauqua Lake that sits behind steel gates. Since it is a summertime destination, the whole community was deserted and eerily quiet. All of the houses were veiled behind large tarps.

  7. Despatch Junction

    Here are some images I made for a story a classmate and I worked on about a brief history of the railroad in East Rochester, formerly known as Despatch. Incorporated in 1897, Despatch was designed around the New York Central Railroad and was home to a booming train car manufacturing plant. We tied in the history to a local train shop, Despatch Junction which is one of a couple institutions that…

    Returned home tonight from Warwick Rhode Island where Northern Short Course was held.

    I was greeted by the usual flurry of rowdy partiers shouting gratuitious profanity. It’s good to be home.

  10. An Uninstallation

    My good friend Kei recently exhibited his senior fine art thesis at RIT. He spent about a year working on it and within 24 hours it was ruined. A window swung open in the gallery causing snow to blow in, soaking part of his very delicate piece made of rice paper. It’s a downright travesty. Why are there windows capable of opening in a gallery? Kei wants his tuition refunded and I can’t blame…
