I took these pictures of Jeff Newelt for a superb article by Alex Williams on the difficulties of losing old (and new) friends we have out grown that ran in the NY Times last Sunday. Ironically enough, Jeff and I realized in the middle of the shoot that we have a lot of friends in common. As […]

I live in Little Italy in NYC, which is essentially three blocks of Mulberry Street as the rest of the area has been completely taken over by Chinatown.
