Barbara's Candy Store #01, 2001 

Project documenting an old school Latino candy store.
Bins of candy lining the walls filled with 1¢ Swedish fish & 25¢ lemon heads.
Sold alongside cuban espresso, pasteles de guyaba, old man hair oil and plastic combs.
A gathering place for crazy characters to have loud animated conversations.
A place and an era I will always remember with love.

Old NYC Nightclub Invites




Found these relics...NYC Nightclub Invites / Flyers from waaaay back.

Japan was an amazing after hours party -
Quick had pigs as seats and a coed bathroom which was its own party -
and DJ Keoki spinning.

Ah, nostalgia for the old NYC night life.
Nights were unpredictable and gritty while being beautifully lit to the beat.

Perfect Day for a Cold Drink



Raspberry Delight - 2005

This image reminds me of how much fun it is to shoot large format.
The ability to focus and pull out a small area of the film plane and throw out the rest.
Going to shoot a few 4x5 sheets this week.

Expired Polaroid - Architecture

 Bergen Avenue, Jersey City, NJ - 2010


 51st Kennedy Blvd. WNY, NJ - 2010


2010



I have always enjoyed shooting expired film,
 you never know exactly what will develop.
Polaroids above all others give you the funkiest results.
This group was shot on a Mamiya RZ67 - film was from a mixed lot - all super old.
