Been on an extended Instagram hiatus (for no reason, in particular). This seems like as good a way as any to get back on the horse
Just received 5 copies of the bound version of my Masters Project for VisCom at Ohio University. Three years of work. Thousands of photos. Hundreds of hours of speaking sub-par Spanish. More puzzled looks and “So what, exactly, where you doing in Ohio?” questions than you could possibly believe. Once these bad boys are shipped off to OU, I’ll be “officially” done with the degree, but not this work, the Work, and the new friends (and family) that have been created while making this.
Thanks to all involved.

So glad that I ran into this issue of Bloomberg Businessweek on my way home for Thanksgiving. Beautiful images by Claire Martin. Striking layout by the editors and designers of Businessweek.
And…deathly important story. One that, being from the soon-to-be Atlantis formerly known as Florida, hits close to home.
When Edward Burtynsky was born in the late 50s, there were 2.5B people in the world. Now they’re 7B+.
"That’s literally a billion in every decade, so I started recognizing that human enterprise was expanding like a rogue species."“I gave myself the view of the outsider, with the ability to look at the systems we need to employ to support the basic mammalian biomass of seven billion people.”

A year after the storm ravaged the East Coast, an exhibition and a book recall the devastation and emphasize, through photography, how it affected us all. (via The New York Times Lens Blog)
Two more images included in a recent post on The New York Times Lens Blog, promoting the show, "Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy."
One year ago, more than 800,000 photos were uploaded and tagged as Superstorm Sandy made landfall. On the anniversary of the devastating storm, Fred Ritchin writes for LightBox on the power of the photograph as self-documentary in 2013. (via Time Lightbox)
Excited to be included in a slideshow of Hurricane Sandy’s landfall, aftermath, and recovery on Time’s Lightbox blog.
If anyone is in the area, please check out the show, “Rising Waters: Photographs of Sandy” at The Museum of the City of New York from October 29 through March 2.
In the year since Sandy, a lot has changed and - unfortunately - a lot hasn’t. Important to continue to keep an eye on the way that the East Coast recovers as well as, takes care of their most vulnerable.
