Book Review: Festivals Are Good by Cheryl Dunn

As a lifelong music fan I have always appreciated festivals. However, they are not for me. I used to go to Ozzfest every year in my late teens and early – mid twenties and festivals for me ran their course. Flash forward almost twenty years later and the festival scene is even bigger than ever. […]

Book Review: Robert Herman’s The Phone Book

Robert’s last book The New Yorkers was a testament to street photography within the limits of NYC. The Phone Book takes that very same principle of street photography and puts it on a global stage. However, all photos were taken with Robert’s cell phone using the Hipstamatic app and yielded amazing results. Robert’s phone photography […]

Book Review: Naked Reflections by Peter Suschitzky

Committing to shooting nudes as a photographer is tough. It’s a road that has been traveled down many times since man laid eyes on woman. How many sculptures and paintings were dedicated to women before the camera came along? Our museums are filled with nudes throughout history. There are even nudes in the pyramids. What […]

Book Review: Briefly Seen: New York Street Life by Harvey Stein

Growing up in NYC one can’t describe the sheer magic of the place. It’s also tough to describe how at times NYC can be the greatest thing on this Earth as well as just one big balled fist of anxiety and emotion. Harvey Stein captures the emotion of New York along with the good, bad, […]

Book Review: Tattoo Super Models by Christian Saint

Who doesn’t love women with tattoos? Up until a few years ago it was a rarity to see women covered in ink. It was considered a taboo subject even among models themselves. This book bashes those archaic notions of what a model should look like or even what a woman looks like. I’m sure there […]

Book Review: Primordial Landscapes by Feodor Pitcairn

Landscape photography is such an amazing photographic art form. We only have one planet and the fact that there are so many treasures to behold with our eyes is a mind-bending thought. We never really give much regard to what visuals are out there. We’re so busy with our day to day lives that maybe […]

Book Review: Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham by Ryan Russell

As a native New Yorker it’s not foreign to me to think about what it would be like to live in another part of the country. One thing I find myself talking about is the fact that it must be kinda cool to move here from another part of the country and meet other like […]

Book Review: One Year on Kythera by Kristina Williamson

I have always been fascinated by Greek culture. Growing up in Queens there is a very vibrant Greek community with events in pretty much every neighborhood where everyone is free to join in and sample the food and ethnic experience. When I got a chance to check out Kristina Williamson’s book: One Year On Kythera […]

Book Review: Moon Viewing: Megaliths By Moonlight by Barbara Yoshida

When I was a kid and watched 2001: A Space Oddessey for the first time it rocked me to my core. I was too young to fully understand what I was watching but the imagery that Kubrick crafted for the film would never leave me. We all remember the monolith. The big black stoic chunk […]

Book Review: Bronx Boys by Stephen Shames

I grew up in Queens. I still live here. I live in a apartment in the neighborhood I grew up in. Even within the five boroughs there are stigmas about the other parts of town. Those stigmas pretty much leaked out onto mainstream America in the 70s and 80s. Even to this day tourists think […]
