Polaroids with Elena Karma



It was a lovely sunny day in the dead of winter in Washington Heights and three girls were ready to take on the town, or at least their local supermarket. My dear friend and sensuous model Samayah Jaramillo and I let passion and fury take over as we grabbed lettuce leaves and radishes, jumped inside of shopping carts and climbed light posts to get the shot's that were running through our heads. The most adorable Russian I ever did meet (possibly the only adorable Russian I've ever met) Elena Karma was there to capture the temporal moments with the flash of her Polaroid camera. The results are the beginning of a story that embarks upon the moment that I began to unleash the over flowing joy and elated-ness that has been boiling inside for far too long with my partner in crime by my side. This is only the beginning people, there will soon be much more to come.

NYFW Style Sightings

As I mentioned in yesterday's post this past weekend I had the pleasure of finding myself at the Lincoln Center for Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. No, I did not attend any shows (this season) but I did take full advantage of the influx of people showing up in their finest and fiercest dud's and photographed the shit out of them. There were so many beautifully and challengingly dressed people and then there were people who would dress in ways that were just so ridiculous in all the worst ways. To say the least you had extremes on both sides and as someone who just moved to New York I had a blast hanging out in front of the shows to see it all happen. Since I have to work during the week I am sadly not able to do this for the entire fashion week but at least I got to spend my weekend watching it all go down and now get to show you all what I saw. This post is dedicated to Saturday and tomorrow will be Sunday. I hope you enjoy and happy NYFW!

Brooklyn Style Sightings

These past few weeks I have spent a lot of my time underground for commute to work. With that said it is safe to assume that when I'm not on the subway I'm indoors since I am now working a 9-5 for SCOPE Art Show and the spare time that I do have to document my fellow inhabitants of New York are only on nights and weekends. So I decided to challenge myself to photograph people indoors, outdoors and underground last week; the following photos are the results. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them. I will admit it has been much more difficult photographing people in the city. For example, when someone did notice me shooting them they would either stare me down or tell me that I can't take their photo. Definitely a challenge and why most of my images are of the backs of people's heads but it is something that I greatly look forward to tackling as time continues. 

This girl seriously had me awe struck. My jaw literally dropped as soon as I saw her sitting in front of me when I stepped onto the subway.

Some major inspiration and mood influencing has been happening since my encounter with this alien creature. Hoping that our paths will cross again one day soon.
