Unfamous Neighborhoods of the Bronx
Irv Fishman grew up in the Bronx in the 1920s and '30s. One fine September day, we set out for an exploration of his old neighborhood by the Cross-Bronx Expressway. The ethnic makeup of Bathgate has changed, but the area was then and is now a gritty industrial/residential area filled with immigrant strivers. For more about Bathgate and Irv, click here.
Skyline New York 2002-2013—Falling and Rising
From thousands of stills of the view of downtown and the East River from my apartment on the Lower East Side I culled hundreds of photos to make a movie. The view is so compelling, always changing--the weather, the buildings the seasons.
Music by Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins, Joni Mitchell (singing "Stormy Weather") and La Bruja. No copyright infringement is intended.

International Labor Communications Association 2010 Labor Media First Award for a photograph, Local Unions Category
"Stella D'oro Workers Fight for Jobs" from The Clarion (Professional Staff Congress, City University of New York)
Judges’ comments: "The concern being expressed by the worker in this photo is quite serious. He has the attention of the politician, who seems to be listening intently. The photo is enriched by the banner in the background and the cameras recording what is really street-level rank-and-file lobbying at its finest."
After a press conference outside the Stella D’oro factory, longtime employee Eddie Marrero (left) urges NYC Comptroller and mayoral candidate William Thompson Jr. (right) to follow through on his promise to help the workers. Click here for the complete article from The Clarion in pdf format.

Slide show from a trip to Tonalá, Zacatecas, and San Blas, Mexico. To me, dogs, pastel walls, and carved out spaces for electric boxes were as embematic as the stone churches. I also loved tanks and laundry on rooftops etched against the blue blue sky.

Mardi Gras 2006, After Katrina
A photo blog of people, floats, and neighborhoods.
It was the first Mardi Gras after Hurricane Katrina, and we went because we were in New York for 9/11 and the early visitors meant a lot.
At the parades,
there were a lot of ruined refrigerator costumes and jokes at
the expense of FEMA and Bush. The city retained character if not
so many people or homes. Click here for the link.
