World of One: School of Cambridge

School of Cambridge (from the series World of One) 2013 Archival Pigment Print from 35mm Negatives 24″ x 38 7/8″ inches | edition of 5   This was the most straightforward and yet most labor-intensive World of One image I have produced thus far. There are 91 frames collaged into School of Cambridge (112 before the edits), which is roughly 3 times the number of frames that have gone into any of the other works in this series. This was shot at MIT behind the Strata Center where they have this cool outdoor seating area. I’ve wanted to do a …

World of One: Invictus

Invictus 2013 Archival Pigment Print from 35mm Negatives 24″ x 43″ inches | edition of 5   “Being unconquerable lies with yourself: Being conquerable lies with your enemy.” – Sun Tzu’s the Art of War The next two pieces in the World of One, Invictus (Latin for “unconquerable”) being the first, will explore the idea of being alone in a crowd. While originally the idea was to only create one picture exploring themes of loneliness, the more I thought about it, the more my thoughts started to focus on the difference between being alone and wanting to be alone. For …

BBoy Monster: El Nino

BBoy Monster: El Nino, Vitruvian BBoy Happy new year everyone! Trying set this year off right, today I unveil my latest creation. Behold! The BBoy Monster: El Nino!!! If you’re a bboy, this guy needs no introduction. If you’re a bboy and you’ve never heard of him, then you’re doin’ it wrong! El Nino has been a dominating figure in the bboy scene for over a decade…which is ridiculous when you consider the fact that he’s barely old enough to drink! It’s pretty difficult to overstate his bboy credentials. At age 11 he teamed up with Kmel of the legendary …

World of One: Yin Yang Whisper

Yin Yang Whisper (from the series World of One) 2012 Archival Pigment Print from 35mm Negatives 24″ x 41 1/8″ inches | edition of 5 + 1 AP   Ladies and gentleman, allow me to present the next installment in the “World of One” series: The “Yin Yang Whisper.” As I walk pass this building on my way to practice everyday, I always think to myself “wow that looks really cool maybe I should take a picture.” Then I never do. Finally, I got my shit together and made it happen. Whenever I’m trying to come up with a new idea …

World of One: Reflection

It feels like I’ve been waiting all summer to take this picture. Unlike the previous images in the world of one series, this was shot on 35mm kodak color film. Of course the film is scanned and manipulated digitally after. But actually shooting with film again, reminded me of how I’d completely forgotten the feeling of fear that came with it. The big difference is this, when you’re shooting with film, you’re bleeding money every time you press the button. I hear dollar signs in my head for each click of the shutter on my old Minolta. But film has …
