Central Synagogue’s B’nai Mitzvah Retreat

I had the pleasure of photographing the final hours of Central Synagogue’s b’nai mitzvah retreat at a hotel in New Jersey. Families gathered for a spiritual journey leading to their childrens’ entrance into the adult Jewish community.

TAG Limited Art Editions 1999-2017 Opening Reception at Westbeth Gallery

Treatment Action Group (TAG) presented an art exhibition and sale, TAG Limited Art Editions 1999–2017, at Westbeth Gallery in New York City.

The TAG art collection started in 1999 through the donation of more than 30 silver gelatin selenium-toned prints by the photographer Ben Thornberry. Thornberry’s images document AIDS activists during the height of the AIDS crisis, from the late 1980s to the early 1990s.

Since 2005, the collection has continued to grow. Overseeing the editions is board member, artist, and long-time AIDS activist Joy Episalla, who has helped gather a stellar group of artists who have generously donated editions specifically produced for TAG.

Included in the exhibition are Erica Baum (2017), Rosalind Fox Solomon (2016), Joy Episalla (2015), Kate Shepherd (2014), Nan Goldin (2013), Robert Gober (2012), Bill Jacobson (2011), fierce pussy (2010), Donald Moffett (2009), Tony Feher (2008), Carrie Yamaoka (2007), David Armstrong (2006), Richard Renaldi (2005), and Ben Thornberry (1999).

March for Our Lives in New York City

March for Our Lives in New York City

Here are some of my photos from March for Our Lives in New York City. I focused on the activity in front of the Trump International Hotel and on Central Park South. I commend everyone who came out to demand an end to gun violence, and I was proud to be part of the march.
