I Know What I'm Doing This Weekend

Central Park / New York City, NY / April 2013

Awhile back I met up with a few folks and photographed. It was hott and loaded with action. It was a great time for sure. Just hope I can go back to New York soon.


I'm Back from California


So, it's been an entire week since I last blogged and I can tell you that it's been a bit crazy. I had a mini vacation in California with my fiance and it was pretty damn good. Not much has been going on since then, but with these rolls of film that I have not developed I can tell you that I will be quite busy. In the coming days I will be releasing the online zine, talk about exhibitions happening, and will be releasing other zines in the process. Though that much of this is still in the works I can guarantee that it's going to be good... stay tuned.


In the Works: I Can Only Remember Everything in the Dark

Monday, May 20, 2013


Pretty excited for the next pressing of the Bueno Power Blogzine series. For this issue I will be presenting new and returning contributors to a night time photography theme titled I Can Only Remember Everything in the Dark. Photographers that I respect the most are included which I am upmost excited about. You don't wanna miss this issue. More details of the release soon.


This Friend of Mine

Keith Levesque / So G Coffee - Glastonbury, Ct / April 2013

This is a person who I just recently friended. He's a bit young (23 years old and I'm 27.. well.. I guess not that young) performing as a DJ and is an artist on the side. I will be doing an exhibition with him soon. Cool dude. Probably the only person I know so far that seems pretty grounded.


Glastonbury Kids

I just finished watching this video. I must say that it brought me back to some of the people I knew who took these extremes, but not as far as these kids. My friend Keith let me borrow the dvd. It really shows the aspect of the youth's world and how they respond to the environment they live around. It's pretty interesting to say the least, but it something I could sort of relate to. If you can check it out. It's pretty crazy.

Film was shot by Justin Donais

What's the Problem

Tuesday, May 14, 2013


Donna / West Hartford, Ct / April 2013

I was able to get a roll of 120 film processed correctly. I had 2 rolls shot previously and when I sent them to the labs nothing came out (they were Ektachromes which cost more to process since it's slide film). I shelved the camera for awhile until I got the inspiration to photograph with it again (it's a Bronica ETRSi by the way). Today, I got it back from the labs and all the shots pretty much came out spectacular.

Anyway, this is my Fiance. I took this shot at a sushi restaurant. We were seated by a window and the light looked incredible. It only took me a minute to take this, but now looking at it this is probably the most honest image I've taken of her. Slightly candid and slightly posed. That stare though...


Disfigurement as a Measurement

Monday, May 13, 2013


Module 13 - Constructed Portrait / AAU Assignment / May 2013

Most of the assignments that I created this year were interesting to say the least. I got really busy with this stuff, trying to construct ideas to complete the assignments, hours of pictures that I don't really care about editing. But this particular one... this image... it was something that I don't usually think about constructing. I've been inspired by Vivian Fu as she has been posting up some interesting conceptual diptychs lately. Other than that I kind of wanted to create this image in ode to the disfigurements that society sees in our world through the media bending of health and shape. This is almost a middle finger to their absurd comments about weight and what you should look like.


My So Called Still LIfe

Tuesday, May 7, 2013


This is what I've dealt with all semester. I took a still life class just to see what it was like. From last year my interest in this kind of photography had actually grown. I've taken influence on Theo Slavin as his work had inspired me to take still life photos in a more "contemporary" way. The images above, however, are more of my commercial like aspects to still life. It's more studio based than anything, but I tried the best I could to create a "look" that defined the images as it were taken by me. As you can tell... I really love color.



Thursday, May 2, 2013


Things just got weird in April. Lots of rain, allergies, plans for wedding, meeting new people, seeing Bladimir again, getting to know people, and school just sucking the life out of me. I'm also unemployed since the easter season is over. It's like this endless cycle of being broke will never leave me behind. Alas, I persist on finding a job that will carry the weight of everything I need to lift up. April fuckin' sucks


villeBURG: Unordinary Photo Arrangements by William Mebane

If you've been following me for quite awhile you know that I've been doing a number of diptychs as of late. They sort of represent an idea of how things could suddenly go together without any thought of it going together in the first place. Just recently Feature Shoot had posted about William Mebane and a new blog he just opened up. It's sort of a rough draft space to see if there are any ideas he could cultivate for future projects. Without any intent of combining images together his theory was to make images everyday with or without a motive.

If you notice that much of his work has an underlying relationship with each other whether if it's in one frame or two. This is something that most photographers don't really see. This blog has definitely given me a fresh look towards a project I've been working on for awhile.

Check him out. It's definitely worth it.



To Carry / Throw Away

West Hartford to Tower District / Middetown , Ct - Fresno, Ca
Winter 2012 - Spring 2007

Another combination of photos I've been thinking about posting for quite awhile. I've been into colors a lot lately as it's been an enhancement towards what I shoot on the daily. It's weird seeing an old photo from my archives suddenly become an relavant post to new work I've been doing as of late. I've really held down the aesthetic of these types of photos since the start of photography. It's interesting.....
