Photo Essay – The Occupy Wall Street Zuccotti Park Eviction

About 4:00 am on the morning of November 15th I woke up to tweets about a Zuccotti park eviction. I got so riled up that I decided to take an early morning trip to Foley Square and join the movement to take back the park. This is my photo essay of that day’s events.

Later that night as is my habit I was watching The Rachel Maddow show and was surprised to see myself on TV marching with the people. You can see me at the 1:11 mark on the far left (no pun intended).

HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD is a short-form Docuseries exploring the power of Public Art and innovation to uplift and revitalize urban communities. I am headed down to Miami Art Basel in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to see this project in person.

Leica Portraits – Jonathan Mannion

It’s been awhile since we published a video from our very popular Leica series. Hopefully this one will get us back on track. This video features Cleveland, Ohio native Jonathan Mannion, who began capturing images of up-and-coming urban music superstars after working for a year with world-renowned photographer Richard Avedon. In 1996, he launched his professional career by shooting the photographs for the classic hip-hop album “Reasonable Doubt” by Jay-Z. Since then he has gone on to capture a who’s who in music, celebrity and sports. In this video Jonathan gives us a little insight into his process as well as some advice for future shutterbugs who want to be like him.

“Brooklyn-based graffiti artist, creative entrepreneur and rapper Michael McLeer, aka Mr Kaves. Providing insight on what it was like to grow up in the late ’70s, we get an idea of his beginnings from scratch and building up an empire revolving around the creative industry.”

Most recently Mr Kaves designed a bottle for George Dubeouf which will be unveiled at an event benefiting Meals on Wheels on November 16th at Stage 37. You can RSVP here.
