stones (not all ideas actualize)

Other artists will know this: sometimes you have great ideas, and do a lot of work, and it doesn’t get used. Alas. Back in the summer I worked with Kripalu’s Creative Director on a concept for Kripalu’s bi-annual magazine cover.

We created some great images, but then the focus of the feature article changed and the concept no longer matched. Kripalu never used the images, so I want to give them a little exposure here.

Ridiculous and Sublime: Life in an Inner-City Franciscan Monastery

The trailer is now complete for my in-progress still-image documentary film about the Little Brothers of Saint Francis in Boston (it begins on black so don't be worried).

portfolio rejects

Young girl with her grandmother in Boston's North End

I’m about to launch a new website with new and updated portfolios. Oh man, the process of selecting images to represent myself is quite challenging. I have to resist simply choosing the images that I love because portfolio images should also be technically sound and relate-able without context so that people consider hiring me for work.

I have finalized my selections and the new site will be up shortly. I thought I’d give a little tribute to the images that missed the cut...

photo slideshow/video for Kripalu Center

Watch the photo slideshow/video piece that I made for Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. I took the majority of the photos and edited the photos and audio together.
