50/50: United States

Image

This wonderful scene is part of my Waiting for Lady Gaga series photographed one sunny morning in Times Square. I was walking north on Broadway and spotted this crowd that had gathered outside the back door of the Good Morning American Studios on West 44th Street. The scene was other worldly; each person seemed frozen in a pose, and the light bathing the scene was reflected off a distant skyscraper. The fans were waiting in droves on both sides of the street with phone cameras at the ready, all facing the exit doors of the studios in anticipation of Lady Gaga’s exit from the building.

50/50: Japan

While on assignment in Tokyo for Hewlett Packard I had some time off over a weekend and decided to visit Senso-ji, an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa. It’s the oldest temple in the city and one of the most famous. What I did not realize is the breadth of the shopping arcades surrounding the sacred buildings and also that this was the center for the celebration of Brazilian Samba in Tokyo. So picture scantily clad Japanese dancers followed by drummers and surrounded by police, local tourists and the wayward monk as they wended their way through the Buddhist bazaar.

In Honor of MLK Day

In honor of Martin Luther King Day I’d like to share a photograph from my series of images taken at the 2009 Obama Inauguration. The combination of the expectant crowd, the circle of flags and the truncated monument symbolize for me how fare the nation had come since 1968, when Reverend King was taken prematurely from all of us.
