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.
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.
that day at coney island with my bestie wife. minolta point & shoot with ilford hp5.
camping on the beach
35mm point and shoot with expired film.
on the first weekend of june me and sakshi went out of town. we camped on the beach in seaside heights and saw alabama shakes, the flaming lips, the maccabees, the vaccines and mumford and sons live.
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.
an afternoon at coney island
spent this sunday afternoon by the ocean with my bestie sakshi, (who took images 4 and 6). well needed.

blue star equiculture, massachusetts II
blue star equiculture, massachusetts
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!
tomorrow i have a presentation of an assignment called memory. this is my take on memory. shot with and underwater disposable camera in my friend (and hypothetical big sister) julia's pool.
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.
here's the scanned negatives from last weekends workshop in large format photography at school, where we learnt how to work a view camera and develop 4x5 film ourselves.
