Rufus Wainwright at the Bowery Ballroom, NYC

Negative Photography

I began photographing my favorite musicians using high speed film without flash. I love how the grain makes each frame look like a pencil drawing. I now sometimes use a digital camera but similarly without flash.

Thrush Hermit

Vintage photos from this much too short-lived band followed by their triumphant reunion tour {from the color images on}

Pulp  + Jarvis Cocker

Most of my closest friends are Pulp fans. We met because of them and waited together for 14 years for them to come back to NYC. It was well worth the wait and Jarvis Cocker solo made it a little easier.

Camouflage Nights

An electronic dream band from Toronto on one of their only trips south to NYC.

The Joel Plaskett Emergency

Since Thrush Hermit disbanded Joel Plaskett has gone on to have a prolific and acclaimed solo career, and I've been lucky enough to be there from the beginning and document some of it.

TUNS - basically a dream come true - Mike O'Neill, Matt Murphy and Chris Murphy writing and singing together. Pop rock perfection.
