Just worked with Livestream and Maison Martin Margiela to bring out the next Autumn/Winter line by video.

That’s me behind the main camera and edit.

Reading the city

Reading the city

(click the link above)

I’m blogging about this piece in the Times for others and so that I can go back and follow up on all the books mentioned. It’s a collection of works from this past year on the subject of cities and how we live in them. Also, of note, from last year, was David Byrne’s Bicycle Diaries, in which the author/musician muses on various cities as he tours them by bike.

‘Up on the Roof’ going up on Thirteen

Up on the Roof, my documentary about pigeons above and changes below, will premiere July 7th at 1pm on WNET/Thirteen. If anyone in the tri-state area has yet to see this film (and frankly, that’s most people), this will be their chance. Thirteen is one of the best programmed and highly regarded PBS stations in the country and I’m proud that they’re following up the successful broadcasts of “Last Summer” with this movie. And because they’re currently running encore broadcasts of Last Summer at Coney Island on both Thirteen and the sister station, WLIW/21, both films will be running concurrently. Up on the Roof will likely have other air dates, too, but I probably won’t find out about them before they happen. So check your local listings or heck, just go to the website and order your own copy on DVD! Bonus features include two historic films about New York pigeon keeping from past decades.

the truth is…

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council commissioned me to do this one about an art show they mounted to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. (Not ABOUT 9/11.)

It was a beautiful day on Governors Island, another one of NYC’s less celebrated treasures. Just a free ferry ride away!
