SPDT promo

This week I had the pleasure of shooting some promotional photos for Stuart Pimsler Dance and Theater, based out of Minneapolis. In March they'll be performing at the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, Tennesse -- so we decided to show them what Minnesotans are made of by dancing in tank tops in just-above-zero temperatures. I've never had to shoot more furiously in my life. Cheers!

Here you have it, dears, my first "legit" (as in "gallery-worthy") piece of visual art. So much love to Paul F Van Gauguin, who masterminded the project, and to Marcel Duchamp, the lucky SOB who got to invent a new word (mobile) and graffiti the bathrooms in the U of M art building without repercussion.

Sch-ism

Watch my friend Kari Mosel dance her heart out (gorgeously so) in "Sch-ism," a multimedia dance piece she's choreographing for Open Call at Patrick's Cabaret in Minneapolis. I was lucky to be asked to provide some photographs, to be projected during the piece. Friday and Saturday, November 19 and 20, 8 p.m. Be there, and be bamboozled (you know, if I do say so myself).

Jenny and John (aka Jonnifer)

I can't even explain how much love I have for these two. Jenny is a coworker who has become one of my dearest friends, and through her I have had the pleasure of getting to know John as well. I've never seen soulmates like these two; they are the cheese to each others' macaroni, each others' raison d'ĂȘtre. I have watched their love grow stronger over the past year I've known them, and it is exactly the kind of love I hope to find some day. This shoot showed me a side of their relationship I'd never seen before, and what I saw left me speechless and inspired. I never wanted to stop photographing, and now I don't want to stop writing... ah! If I make it through their wedding next summer without weeping, it'll be a miracle...
