Why I Love Sex (NSFW)

Coming soon! My second collaboration with photographer Ralf Mitsch. The first one was called Why I Love Tattoos. This one is Why I Love Sex. It features more than 50 personal stories about embracing eroticism and sexuality in life and work, including a few famous ones like Xaviera Hollander and Kaat Bollen. I translated the interviews into English. Contains lots of pictures of naked people, and some really interesting stories. [more inside]

Film photography website get!

I'm a film photographer based in NYC and I finally bit the bullet, scanned a load of negatives, bought a URL + hosting, and put up a website. Mostly black and white (some color), mostly medium format (some 4x5 large format or 35mm), in a couple different genres. There's some moody street work, a fun hot sauce expo, NYC Pride 2016, and much more for your delectation. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

3 Generations of Tools, Photographed

I'm a third generation stagehand. My father and grandfather were both theatrical carpenters, and my father is also an antique tool collector. Many of the images are literally the drawers out of his roadbox and various tool chests at his home, others are some of my favorite pieces of his. I've been posting them with my recollections of a lifetime with these tools, or with stories from my father or grandfather. [more inside]

This Land, This Year

I'm traveling to every state in the USA in 2017 and writing about it. For several reasons. I've been to eight states so far. There's an Instagram to go along with the blog.

Evening.Camera: Fragments of my life from twilight

I'm a photographer. I wanted to make more, better pictures, so I started going out a couple of evenings a week with my camera. I've found myself drawn to what I've pompously called "liminal light", as artificial lights take over from the daytime. There's a blog post about the first 100 days of the project here.

cloud | light: photographs, mostly of clouds

I enjoy clouds, and maybe you do to. If so, you may enjoy my tumblr of my cloud photos, many from New Mexico, but not exclusively. I'm slowly working through my archive of photos, so I'll be prolific for a while, until I finally catch up with my current photos.

The Body Parts Project

This is an ongoing participatory art project about body positivity that starts with the question: What's your favorite part of your body? Parts, scars, moles, freckles, warts and all - funny or poignant... what's the part of your body you appreciate most? It might be a part of you that does something you like, or maybe you just like how it looks or feels. [NSFW] [more inside]

In Training, photographs of bonsai trees

A few years ago, I began photographing bonsai trees as a personal project. Fast forward two years later, I have a beautifully-designed book of my photos I'd love to share. I wasn't sure why, but I felt a deep, visceral connection to these ancient trees. The bonsai, themselves, seemed the very opposite of the subjects I usually photographed - they stood before me fully present, their sense of time measured in decades, even centuries. From my first glimpse of the trees all those years ago, I knew implicitly that there was something to be learned from them, from their endurance and quiet dignity. [more inside]

A Visit to Cementland

Here's an album of photos that I took one day in Cementland. Cementland is an abandoned/unfinished industrial playground/amusment park kind of place (if you're in to that sort of thing).

Time Lapse of Daily Show set change

I'm a lighting tech and a photographer who loves to make time lapse movies of shows I work on, when I'm there for the whole run of an install. Occasionally the show finds out. Sometimes I get in trouble and sometimes I don't...my latest time lapse is a 7 week long shoot of the set change from the the set change from the Jon Stewart Daily Show to the Trevor Noah Daily Show.

word.camera generates paragraphs from a photograph

With Clarifai, an image concept extraction API utilizing convolutional neural networks, and ConceptNet, a lexical relationship database, I built a template system to generate paragraphs of text from photographs. word.camera is responsive — it works on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. The code behind it is open source and available on GitHub, because lexography is for everyone. [more inside]

SeattleFocus: Personal Photography Portfolio

I recently moved to Seattle, and so I decided to use the move as an excuse to redesign my personal photography website. I would love to hear comment, critique and constructive criticism about my photography or the website. I am hoping to use it to both get my photography projects out there and pick up freelance work in my new home city. I have done quite a bit of freelance work back home, but this is very much a new market for me. Thanks!

#BringBackOurGirls and the Misuse of Imagery

The Twitter campaign #BringBackOurGirls helped galvanize a response to the kidnapping of 276 Nigerian girls by the Islamic militant group Boko Haram in early May. Accompanying the hashtag are images that have been reposted thousands of times—by everyone from Chris Brown to the BBC. The only problem? These are pictures from Guinea-Bissau, three years ago, of girls that have never been kidnapped.

Nervous Times, Photography by Lawren Hyder

Just what the internet needs, more still images. I spend the majority of my time as a photographer working in Victoria, BC, Canada, particularly within the 2 km² confines of the James Bay neighbourhood. Through the lenses of crap cameras, Leicas, Nikons, and everything in between, I've amassed a veritable mountain of mostly incidental photographs—snapshots, failed attempts at fine art, and, above all, an inordinate amount of stuff that makes me think “What exactly was I thinking when I tripped the shutter?” [more inside]

Coachella Valley Photo Spheres Project (Tumblr)

I want to map cool, interesting, and (mostly) scenic places in a region I live and drive around a lot in, and have come to appreciate and love. It happens to host the largest music festival in the USA at the moment. It's kind of a quiet, nice place to explore and relax in (though not as much in the scorching-hot summer). [more inside]

A love song for New Orleans, except in photos

I've tried to present my New Orleans; how I see this place that surrounds me and won't let me go. It's the result of years' worth of photography and my desire to show what the Crescent City means - it's not a commentary about crime, or Katrina, or Bourbon St. tourism, but the scenes that stand out in the everyday.

Extrasolar

A few years ago, I helped build a prototype of an original idea for a web game, and today it's out of beta and open to all! "What is it?" you ask. It's one of the very few games in which you are yourself and not playing a character. It is an experience you can have over the course of a month or so, a few minutes at a time. It increases your understanding of exobiology. It's exploring a new planet, one picture at a time. [more inside]

The Grove

A few years ago I inherited a Prohibition-era portrait of my ancestors. As I researched who was in it and where it was taken, unknown relatives began to emerge with historical detail and an alternate version of that very portrait. Questions remain. So I'm hoping that more descendants come out of the electronic woodwork.

Picflood

Picflood presents an unfiltered stream of pictures publicly posted to Twitter, updated in real time, with or without a filter for text in the tweet. Because of the specific Twitter API stream that Picflood hooks into, users see only a small subset of Twitter photos, but they still come through fast enough that it's hard to fully process each image before it disappears. Very NSFW.

Lonenote App

At times in my life, I struggled to connect with the people around me and found myself alone. Sometimes I felt at peace, sometimes it was really difficult. Lonenote is a mobile app where people can express these moments — whether peaceful, silly, or sad — through handwritten notes. My hope is that by sharing this experience we’ll feel a sense of connection when we’re alone, and find more acceptance of ourselves and each other.

Small Landmarks is my first book

I just published an ebook, small landmarks. It's a visual journal of photography and notebook writing, a meditative account of walking with a camera, finding things, and making connections. I wrote about my experience of publishing it on the Apple iBookstore using iBooks Author, including a few problems I ran into because of the unconventional nature of the book. [more inside]

The “Fortieth Parallel” is a photographic examination of precise yet arbitrary places found along this parallel across the American landscape.

This series unites my interest in mapping with conceptually-based art practices and references several “histories”—my father’s history as a surveyor, my interests in maps and systems, the history of the mapping of the U.S. and photography’s role within it, and the history of GPS and locative technologies. Begun in 1998, before GPS selective availability was lifted, this project was completed in 2012. By documenting the seemingly random terrain found at these intersections, I invite the viewer to consider the history of landscape, land use, and the built environment as well as their own relationship to place.

Feathers, photographed and scanned.

So I've been photographing and scanning feathers for a little over a year now. They're fascinating up close, and when printed over a foot tall reveal whole little universes.
