Wedding self portraits October 5th, 2009
I have a collection of images of myself shot using the windows at weddings in my downtime. It’s kinda nerdy, I know, but ingesting cards is super boring. So if you see me shooting photos out a window with a strobe going off come over and get your picture took with me.
Olympic FAIL October 2nd, 2009
As I was parking my car to attend a big party where Chicago would be named greatest city in the freakin’ world and get anointed with the crown that is the 2016 Olympic games, NPR reported the vote went the other way. I wasn’t totally in favor of the Olympics, nor against it. The city has way more serious issues that could use attention, like gun violence, poverty, gentrification, failing schools, I could go on. So the reporter I was working with, Chris LaFortune, and I hung out as a handful of students and faculty at Concordia University Chicago watched news reports.
Most people declined to be photographed, the gym was super dark, and we missed the moment. But you can’t publish an excuse.
