Throughout 2019 Cleveland Print Room is partnering with the library and NPR, to share the diversity of everyday life in Cleveland through photographs and stories.

I’m excited to share that I’ll be part of a group of photographers who are photographing the current landscape of the city of cleveland for their upcoming 150th yr anniversary, their permanent collection, and show. This one was made on the 4x5 earlier this year in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood. Before this site became lakeside apartments, it was home to the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Co. during the first half of the 20th century.

Allen Frame’s work has always been an influence to me due to the subtlety. The work I was first drawn to was of the people he knew closely during the 90’s. Documents of who was with him in a way where it seems he wasn’t even there. Mainly made with the use of a single sourced light, deep tones, and grain - They are sensitive yet strong, simple and informative.

His more current work from a year long residency he served in Italy last year drew me in with his use of color and balance of the scene and figure. They are shown alongside a collection of pictures he owns that contribute to the narrative.

Seeing him and his work again was a refreshing and informative. His work is worth seeing in person to understand how they fit together.

Foundry Sailing

I always feel fortunate to be able to build sets of images for people who are hyper committed to what they do or believe while it takes time to edit the work to match their meaning, especially in this age where everything is super instant and fleeting.

These images were made for the Foundry after a couple of times out there with them and it would seem sailing is a summer activity, though they host a Frost event in the fall and also held the US Sailing team championship last year. Big moves for a new organization!

Expect more from them with the sailing circuit. They’ve recently built the longest rowing docks in the world and completely renovated the Old Coast Guard Station in Cleveland on Whiskey Island to become a sailing and rowing destination.
