It’s the start of 2012 and as far as these things go, this blog is ancient (born Nov 2006). I think it has been overdue to be put to bed for some time now. So this is it.
If you want, you may visit this new site, /blog2. It will have it’s own personality, because as they say, we have to change to stay the same.
Thanks to everyone who visited and participated here over the years. It was a lot of fun.
I wanted to give an update that there are only about 30 or so copies left of Savage, Dixie, Slaughterville, so if you were thinking of getting one now’s a fine time. Email me directly to get a copy, or Dashwood Books and Printed Matter in NYC are carrying them if you prefer to buy one in person.
Schilling stuff like this isn’t my preferred schtick, but I would love to get the last stack of these out and into people’s homes, so send me an email and I’ll get you one.
As promised, here’s a slideshow of the entirety of this new book.
I’m excited about this new book, since it represents for me both a confluence of old ideas and also a growth into new ones, but beyond that I don’t know what to say about it in particular w/o betraying it, so I’ll leave the rest up to you. A slideshow of all the images will be up on my portfolio site and here when it’s done in the next week or so, in the meantime a few pics. Finally, there are only 100 copies of this, so let me know if you want one.

I don’t really show this sort of candid street stuff much anymore. I still shoot it, but only for myself – it’ll maybe get a shitty contact sheet scan and then stuffed in a box. The other night I flipped through some of the contacts from this summer and cropped out ones I thought were cool.
