This past summer I did another series of my old roommate Wesley, this time dancing in Prospect Park. He’s an extraordinary athlete and such a graceful, creative dancer to capture. I am so proud of all he’s done and accomplished.
Truly one of the most interesting roommates I’ve ever had was my friend Wesley, who is a choreographer, has a Nick Cave-ish presence, and possesses an intellect of Niles Crane brilliance. Wesley came over to my Harlem sublet just before he headed across the Atlantic to Avignon to study, and after sampling some ancient whiskey stored in the previous tenant’s eclectic liquour cabinet, a really bizarre series of him doing some gothic movement work. If you ever want a thoughtful and honest suggestion for quality NYC theatre, Wesley’s your guide.
Models: Amy Schwartzman and Dora Schwartzman
I had the distinct pleasure of photographing choreographer Amy Schwartzman with her daughter Dora at their Brooklyn home in 2015. This shoot was very playful and incorporated Amy’s mother’s scarves in some impromptu dancing.
