Barnum Parade 2012 / For The Love of Circus

I have always loved photgraphing people since my very first Black Plastic Kodak Instamatic Rectangular box. Accidently encountering the P.T. Barnum Parade was a treat. There were no animals in the Parade.

HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL

ABOVE: A Rainbow Arcs Across the Sky At WildReds Gardens. A peaceful moment. A gift from nature. Awe inspiring and humbling. There are very few moments in my life where I am setback from all the current contexts political personal etc. and can just breath and watch. This was one of them. It was hard to take a picture because I just wanted to look. A double rainbow floating in the mist on the first day of June of 2012.

FRAGMENTATION SERIES: Edit # 5 No Slo-mo VIMEO HD

ABOVE: I know I have posted several versions of this video work however I am preparing a new shoot and am editing it in different ways to try and figure out the best strategy for the live shoot. Some lighting issues and the slight jiggle of the rig are two problems that will be solved in the next version of this series ( as opposed to the next edit of the existing series) Hang on to the end for some extras and B-Roll stuff.

non-verbal street performance art

I recently Performed in Torino Italy. I was performing primarily for pedestrians, tourists and local people who happened to pass me by. My Italian language skills being next to nothing forced me to stick to entirely non-verbal means.

Wandering Streetz of Warzawa, Poland 2010

BELOW: Warsaw, Poland. A bas-relief of a mother with child from the socialist realism era within Poland slowly decays in the acidic rain as a late capitalist cultural force represented by ZORK leaves its global human scrawl beneath it.
