three cancers eat meat
the night in july when we celebrated veronicas, natashas and nicoles birthdays with a big barbecue in their backyard.
shot on hasselblad, in january last year, on the night that new york shut down everything becuase there was a massive "snowstorm" coming. the storm never really came to my block in crown heights, brooklyn though. everyone was told to stay inside.
memories of new york
35mm expired color film, from when my mom and my cousin came to visit in april. we went to coney island, to the top of rockefellar center and strolled around the lower west side. among a lot of things.
waiting for a train in the bronx
35mm expired fuji superia 800.
finding these made me think of all the small day trips we used to take when in new york. getting lost, and stuck up in the bronx was one of them. we were going to meet some friends at the bronx botanical gardens for some event. after getting lost to find the bus, getting the wrong bus and staying on for the entire lap we finally made it there, to realize it was twenty bucks just to enter. and we were broke and decided that we could spend that money on lunch instead. we waited for the train back to the city for over an hour. but we had fun. it was one of quatlify time trips. i miss you.
a night from my other life

4th of july
minolta point and shoot with expired film.
i celebrated 4th of july with annie, her wife caitlin and all their friends. we had an amazing barbeque in their backyard with hotdogs, brisket, corn and fruit! this was what i thought living in new york would be like!
one day in late may, maybe early june, me and sakshi went to coney island and dipped our feet in the ocean. it was just one of those days.. a very needed break from art projects, finals and exhibition preparations. and now i really, really miss it.
one sunday afternoon a few weeks ago we just decided to skip working on our photography and had a pic nic in central park.
hasselblad. porta 400 and tri-x 400.
POINT AND SHOOT II
at the end of our seminar classes, the one class that we've all had together every tuesday afternoon for a year, we all went out and had a beer and danced together. even our lovely seminar leaderes joined in!

shot on 35mm fuji color film.
this weekend me and my two icp friends angie garcia and julia pontes went on a roadtrip to massachusetts to get out of this loud, fast city for a while. we went all the way to springfield, massachusetts! there we visited paul and pam rickenbach-moshimer at their horse farm, blue star equiculture, where they take care of retired work horses. pam and paul were so warm and welcoming and are doing an amazing job with all thirtytwo horses!
it was such an amazing trip and a well-deserved break from school stress and new york city!

the brooklyn room
a roll of ruined negatives
during a very, very intense weeklong workshop with photographer and artist robert blake we got an assignment to split up into pairs and in turn take each other - blindfolded - to our favorite place in new york. i took my friend sakshi, blindfolded, to strand bookstore at union square and had her walk around smelling books she couldn't read. then she led me sixteen blocks, blindfolded, to the east river park, overlooking brooklyn.
while being blindfolded we were instructed to focus our hearing, the way we focus our eyesight. to try and hear what's around you in a one meter wide circle and gradually expanding it. and we were instructed to photograph while blindfolded, using our other senses (primarily hearing and touch) to frame our pictures and set our focus.
these are my images taken while blind at the east river park in new york. i must say, pretty decent for not being able to see anything - while shooting on film with the hasselblad. and changing the film, while blind.
