I am speaking at the School of Visual Arts and I would like you to join me. While I was thinking of topics to speak about, I thought to myself ‘what does your audience really want to know…?’
Even if you are not able to attend, you can still take part, the talk will be available here on iTunes so please feel free to give me your input either via a comment here on the blog or send me an email.
As part of the SVA i3 : Images, Ideas, Inspiration Lecture series and Art in the First Person Lectures,
my talk starts at 7 pm sharp, is open to the public, in room 418 F at 136 West 21st St, between 6 and 7th Ave.
For more info please check the School of Visual Arts website. Hope to see you there.
Come on out tomorrow and cheer on the athletes paddling around Manhattan to bring awareness and funding to the Surfers’ Environmental Alliance (SEA) environmental projects and ancillary Autism charities.
Join us at the start at 7:30am on Pier 40, and at the finish line around 12:30 when the first Elite Race paddlers will be landing on the beach underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, or for the White Water Party on Pier 17 at 6pm. For more info please visit SEAPadddle NYC.
As in the last years, I will be covering the event with photo and video front to back. Here are some images from last year.
Yesterday, PDN Magazine featured my SEAPaddle portraits from last year on their PDN Photo of the Day site highlighting the great cause of the event.
It would be great to see you there!
I love NYC, but I need to get out.
It started out as a cool, overcast Sunday morning on an empty ferry, the mood mellow, slow and meditative. It turned into a delightfully warm, clear and sunny day. Full summer will soon arrive.
Once past the Verrazano Bridge, the smell of that salty air immediately brought me into a different state of mind. The sound of the waves crashing was like what I believe John Muir once said “washing my ears” from the sounds of the city. My feet in the sand and my gaze upon the open horizon. The sun is about to break through, it is just 11am and I am beginning to unwind.
The ferry ride is somewhat of a personal luxury to me. It enabled me to hang on to the mellowness and relaxed state achieved by spending time on the beach and riding my bike along the outside perimeter of the city at sunset, not having to dive in until the last moment, helped to preserve that feeling. The mellow Sunday evening vibe of NYC helps as well.
