Last weekend I documented the Brooklyn Rock Lottery 3, an event whereby New York musicians gather for 1 day, randomly forming bands through a draft, creating songs during the afternoon, and performing them live that night. Press and info here.
Photos of Amelia Midori Miller shot for ArtBridge, the NYC-based organization who seeks to enhance the urban experience by transforming overhead construction scaffolding into temporary art installations. Studio portraits of Ameila done in her Bushwick studio. Below, a photo of of Brooklyn resident Angel in front of Miller’s work at the Barclay Center.
Earlier this Spring, I shot the publicity photos for the Sugarman 3’s new album campaign. The band was key in establishing New York’s vibrant funk/soul scene. Sugarman is the co-founder of Daptone Records, and a founding member of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. We shot the images near Daptone’s “House of Soul” in Bushwick, Brooklyn. One of the images was used on the back cover of their “What the World Needs Now” LP.
Atlanta’s Gringo Star rolled through New York this week. I shot them in the Orchard studio and in the East Village. Their new record “Count Yer Lucky Stars” will be out on Oct 25 on Gigantic Records.
DJ Comrade aka Comrade da Xao is a producer, deejay, and a gifted purveyor of all things Brazilian and Baile Funk, based out of New York City. I photographed him on a frigid day in the winter of 2011 on Bond Street in New York. Twist your mind around what this kid is doing: http://soundcloud.com/comrade-xao-productions
