MANHATTAN BRIDGE AT NIGHT, FROM BROOKLYN
The New York Times published one of my photographs this week. I took the picture in Central Park at 1 a.m, just as a snowstorm had begun to blanket the City, offering a rare opportunity to capture the Park void of people, and with the snow untouched. The image, which appears below, was published the next day in the City Room blog: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/01/13/central-park-wednesday-1-a-m/
This week, I became a collector of photography after I came across the work of Dennis Cordell on Flickr. Dennis posted a portrait of a Tibetan Monk which he made in Bodhgaya, India. I studied Dennis's work and was struck by the many extraordinary portraits he has made of Tibetan refugees. His photographs capture the radiance, kindness and candor of his subjects, who he says are often flattered to be photographed. And his technique, he explained, is quite simple. He shoots with a Hasselblad camera and pushes Tri-X film, then scans the negatives and prints digitally.
You may not have heard of Dennis Cordell just yet, but that is only because he has not shown his work very much. I hope he does, because his images are a beautiful blend of history, documentation, and fine-art.
Please view the work of Dennis Cordell on Flickr.
