Test print at my darkroom door made by Kaya Berne who works by remote for me here at Burn Magazine while a U of Va science student.
This print is from a med format neg of Kerry Payne and Justin Staley wedding. Kerry just aced a week on BurnDiary. Kaya just aced this print. It has taken us all day to get the darkroom set up and to make only one good print. Yet the mood of film and the darkroom slows you down. Like what’s the rush?
After super minor hernia surgery I am stuck at home eating almonds and drinking water and popping pain pills. Times like these force one to do what procrastination allows you not to do any other time. So I am now editing some Kodachromes from Barcelona and vicariously re-living my own life. From the looks of this take it appears I was having a lot of fun on the NatGeo expense account. Well I never get busted for having fun as long as I have the pictures to prove it!
The “Kibbutz”…from a book upcoming.
Alex Lettrich is a marine biology student at Florida Tech and a lifetime summer Carolina OBX’r. She is also an avid photographer, loving both the iPhone and the Fujifilm Instax. Her work is of the sea of course.
Summertime in the Outer Banks of North Carolina often brings an early morning rain. I travel around the world, however if not traveling I play with my iPhone and just shoot pictures close to home.
This in my driveway on the way to the grocery store. More and more my phone camera becomes a really creative tool.
Every morning I get coffee and breakfast at Nags Head pier to start my day. This is my favorite part of being home and not on the road, as many photographers tend to travel most of the year. Birds are usually my only (and most welcome) company.
Kitty Hawk beach..I love shooting any day of course. See how Burn Magazine readers are using Instagram with BurnDiary
I never met Melissa before in my life. I still have no idea who she is except that she is the girlfriend of one of my son Bryan’s friends who happened to be at my home for a recent steamed crab feast for my first summer party following Look3.
I take a lot of pictures on my front porch. Somehow there is always a lot to shoot there and again fulfills my personal mantra for not going anywhere to shoot Instagrams on my phone.
Sunset. Yoga. Dog. Frisbee. Beach. Home. Friends. Sand. Now.
5 year old Atlas Anderson does the New York rooftop high dive on a hot summer afternoon in Williamsburg. Atlas is the son of Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson and Newsweek magazine editor Marion Duran. Our building in Brooklyn has been the home of at least 4 Magnum photographers and is the old fashioned classic artist loft building. The rooftop is a community center of sorts with spectacular views of Manhattan.
The landlord of my building, his wife, and last daughter to be married. This will be part of my “Off For A Family Drive” series, shot with medium format film.
I love taking family pictures… this shot of my 25 year old niece Hannah, left, waiting for a taxi after lunch is only one of dozens I hv shot of her since she was a tiny baby. She just got engaged while assisting in the loft workshop.
