Twenty-Somethings in NYC

Twenty-Somethings in NYC

This summer, the New York Times asked thirteen young, emerging photographers to document the 20-somethings in their lives via their iphones as a supplement to Robin Marantz Henig’s article on ‘‘emerging adulthood“. The NYT consistently offers supplemental multimedia content on their site and this is no exception. Check out all the shots here. The photographers...

Meet in NYC

Introducing Meet, a beautiful hotel-like New York City-based collaborative rental space designed by Marc and Sara Schiller, co-founders of popular street-art site Wooster Collective. From art openings with Phil Toledano to creative powwows with SwissMiss, this creative 2500 square foot loft in Soho offers much-needed space for creative collaboration and community.

Sunny Brooklyn

Sunny shots from Brooklyn for your Saturday via NYC-based photographer Valery Rizzo. You should check out this great blog while you’re at it.

Moody Morning

Work by Flora Hanitijo, New York-based photographer by way of Macau and Montreal. Hanitijo has received a slew of laudable accolades, including being named in PDN 30 as a photographer to watch in 2009. I’ve had her work bookmarked for months and thought this cloudy morning was the perfect time to showcase her work.

Sustainable Design in Brooklyn

While in Las Vegas last week for the apparel shows, I stopped by sales and branding agency Indigo Showroom‘s booth. While looking through their client roster, I discovered Uhuru, a Brooklyn-based furniture company focused on environmental sustainability with an avant garde design sense. Uhuru was founded in 2004 by RISD grads Jason Horvath and Bill...

Comfort Food in NYC

If you’re visiting or living in New York, you’re probably hiding out from the cold and snow in your tiny apartment or hotel room. Mama’s Food Shop (200 East 3rd Street, btwn Ave A + B) is a reason to pile on the scarves, pull on the gloves and trudge to the Lower East Side....

Cultural Intimacy

Manjari Sharma‘s series of shower images are intimate, voyeuristic and eerily beautiful. For the past few months, the Indian-born, New York-based photographer has been inviting men and women who are essentially strangers into her bathroom-turned-studio to create portraits. She has subsequently experienced “the fastest, most disarming relationships I have formed with people in this country.”...

Raw in NYC via CA

I recently came upon the work of Tobin Yelland, a northern California-born, New York based photographer. His work is rough around the edges in the best way, covering everything from skaters to gang members. He started off early-on shooting for Thrasher as a teenager, and since his work has been exhibited The Luggage Store, Deitch...

Holiday Gift Guide #2: Kiosk

I realize I have posted about this little New York-based store before, but you’ll thank me for reminding you about it! Go to Kiosk‘s site this weekend and shop dozens of creative, odd, simple, quirkly, original, useful, friendly, inexpensive gifts for nearly everyone on your list. Okay, maybe everyone. The store’s concept is best described...

A little bright and sparkly neon inspiration from the streets of Manhattan.

Inside a Brooklyn Apartment

Here’s a little peek into JC and HG’s Brooklyn apartment. They had so many beautiful pieces of artwork, flea market finds and other fun objects that I had to share. Row One: Painting by Alexia Stamatiou (expect a longer post about her in the future!) // Crowd Photo (AIA #16) taken at Cochella Music Festival...

Sunday in Brooklyn

This past weekend I was visiting some friends in New York and we decided to hit up the Brooklyn Museum at the end of our Sunday. Although the visit was a little rushed, I’m really glad I got the chance to check out the space. We did a very speedy run through the permanent collection,...
