Someone has been attacking women in my neighborhood. 10 women have been assaulted in the past seven months, and the police have yet to arrest a suspect. Tammyli Gonzalez of CrossFit 718 decided to take action, and hosts a class taught by Ariel Yarden at her gym. In these pictures, the pair demonstrate ways to escape an attacker.
This weekend, I photographed reenactors in Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. They set up camp, marched and answered my questions about their petticoats to commemorate the 150th anniversary (or sesquicentennial, if you prefer lots of syllables, which I do) of the Civil War. There are 4,500 Civil War veterans buried in the cemetery.
Paying for dinner, bowling, eating curly fries, showing off, texting, eating again, kissing birds, and looking at a Robert Frank picture before bed: these are some of the things we did.
Here are a few pictures I took of my dear buddies, XXXChange, Chris Devlin, and DJ Ghostdad. They called me up and I went down the hill to quickly take these pictures of them in their digital creation: Win Win!
Back in August, I photographed Battle of Brooklyn reenactors at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Sunset Park, Brooklyn for the Wall Street Journal. It was a hot day (remember those?) and the re-enactors marched, shot a cannon, and laid a wreath in memory of Battle of Brooklyn soldiers.
