Great to see Ray's Candy Store featured in last night's final episode of Parts Unknown. I love how Anthony Bourdain always strived to find those places and people that were the heart and soul of a location. People, resturants, venues that truely made an area unique. His down to earth global wanderings in search of authenticity and humanity will be dearly missed. #ripanthonybourdain #NYC #LES #partsunknown #rayscandystore #eastvillage #manhattan #potd #anthonybourdain
Outtake from my recent shoot with the amazingly talented NYC Ballet dancer and Broadway star Gina Pazcoguin. "Early mornings, late nights, and demands that test the limits of my anatomy: I rarely spend time at home. Restoring my body and being have become such an integral part of my artistic process. My baths provide the opportunity to do both along with being delightfully fun." #potd #ballet #NYC #broadway #nyhabitats #performer #artist #athome #nycballet

Mosh Pit, Mexico City. From my recent series Mexico City Underground. I recently spent some time in Mexico City and stumbled across the cities vast underground music and punk scene.
Eduardo Hernandez: photographer Mexico City. "My joy comes from playing with lighting and composition" In Mexico City every few blocks there is a neighborhood photographer, with a makeshift studio in a room of their homes. Seeing these, on my recent visit to the city I felt like I was stepping back in time to an era where every community had it’s own photographer, cobbler, Tortillaria and maybe even a blacksmith. At first it seemed my life as a photographer in New York City was so vastly different to that of these photographers, until I interviewed them and I realized how much more similar we really are and how the same passion for our craft drives us all. #potd #photographer #Mexico #CDMX #mexicocity 🇲🇽 #portrait #color #environmentalportrait

Susan Fox is a leader of the infamous Park Slope mommy mafia. Her online group called Park Slope Parents has brought thousands of families in her area together. From baby groups to restaurant recommendations, PSP is an ever adapting force to fit the neighborhood's needs and has supplied many parents with resource to ensure their children lead healthy lifestyles. I shot Susan as part if my series Locally Famous. Each neighborhood in NYC is unique, and all have their local celebrities. They are people that are the heart of the neighborhood, they are famous within their respective communities and help shape the area’s personality. I set out to photograph these people in all 5 boroughs.
