Superbowl 2012: The Moment Of Truth for NY Giants

February 6th, 2012 by Andrzej Superbowl 2012: The Moment Of Truth for NY Giants

The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots and won the Superbowl in a tense showdown last night in Indianapolis. I spent the evening wandering between various downtown bars and wound up at B-Side in the East Village, where I took this picture of the moment Ahmad Bradshaw scored the Giant's winning touchdown. The […]

He moved to NYC about 20 years ago and has become enormously successful here. I photographed […]

February 1st, 2012 by Andrzej Building Bridges And Crossing Them: I moved to NYC six years ago today

To honour that anniversary and in recognition that I haven't been back to Australia since moving to NYC, the pictures I am posting today are all Australian. Some were personal and some were commissioned. This first one was taken as part of a photo essay I shot on the Sydney Harbour Bridge for The Bulletin […]

What is a Friend? How do we collect them and how do we lose them?

January 31st, 2012 by Andrzej What is a Friend? How do we collect them and how do we lose them?

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 […]

Happy New Year: It Is The Chinese Year Of The Dragon

January 23rd, 2012 by Andrzej Happy New Year: It Is The Chinese Year Of The Dragon

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. And whilst the area normally remains open over Christmas and New Year, today everything around here is closed because it's the Chinese New Year (Of The Dragon). […]

CMJ Part 4: The New Pretenders? Dum Dum Girls Reboot Garage Pop

November 25th, 2011 by Andrzej CMJ Part 4: The New Pretenders? Dum Dum Girls Reboot Garage Pop

Dum Dum Girls are my new favorite band. The last time female garage pop sparkled so brightly was when the Pretenders released their debut album back in 1979. Like the Pretenders, they have songs. Unlike the Pretenders, this is an all girl band. They are also hot and stylish too. A combination guaranteed to succeed. […]

Baaba Maal & Chris Salewicz: Talking Drums and Spoken Words from Africa To The World

November 10th, 2011 by Andrzej Baaba Maal & Chris Salewicz: Talking Drums and Spoken Words from Africa To The World

I don’t know many musicians who would take a journalist on the road with them and agree to be interviewed on stage every night before playing a show. Two weeks ago I watched Baaba Maal discuss the state of Africa, womens rights and the world in general with respected music journalist and author Chris Salewicz. […]

And the band played dress ups as killers for the Halloween Night as well as playing a set of killer songs. They […]
