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.

Brooklyn Cafe

Currant Cafe is in Bushwick Brooklyn.  My favorite thing about this shot is the two people sitting at the table.  They were just there and I asked if they wouldn’t mind staying there while I took the shot.  It’s amazing how the color of the clothing and the woman’s hair work with the rest of the space.
