Community Living in Brooklyn

Happy New Year

Recently I’ve been working with Node, a company that is re-imagining community living, where residents connect, meet and collaborate locally and globally.  Their buildings are comprised of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments that are fully furnished and decorated.  Node works with local architects, interior designers and furniture makers to give their residences a style that reflects the history of the building and its local area.

Here’s a recent shoot from a brand new renovated building at 163 St. Nicholas Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

A Space Without Art

This beautiful Manhattan interior was designed by architect Joel Sanders for GLSEN a non-profit championing LGBTQ issues in K-12 education.

This shoot presented a frequent problem.  The space is ready to be photographed but the artwork has yet to come in.  Most of the time the easiest thing to do is wait.  That wasn’t an option in this case.

We knew that one wall would have a mural of hands joining, symbolizing GLSEN’s values, and another a collage of LGBTQ pioneers.

Both pieces of art had to be created from scratch after the shoot and applied to the walls at multiple angles in Photoshop.

Time Machine

No, not a time machine.  These photographs were made at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in Manhattan for Potion Design.

The exhibit is a replica of an apartment where a real life Puerto Rican family lived on the Lower East Side in the 1970’s.

Higher Learning

The client for this photograph is Wilk Marketing Communications.  The architect of this space is BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers.  Having the students in there really makes the shot.  Thank God they were so patient with us.  There was a lot of wait time between shots as we got the room set up to be photographed.
