Few weeks ago, I had a great opportunity to photograph a beautiful program rehearsal “Dancing the Grimm” (highlighting the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm through dance) choreographed by Donald Borror for the Lincoln Center Education.
Feeling the warmth of the sun and welcoming the new season, that is about to begin….. In a city, crowded with people, their energetic waves and conflicting emotions, all you have to do sometimes is just look for a moment and dedicate it to yourself. Breath in….

Some snapshots of Yen during NYFW, in between the shows :-) Such a pretty model & a good friend, love her!
Manjari has always been one of my favorite photographers, I met her during SVA when she reviewed my work, and immediately connected with her vision and passion for what she does. Yesterday my friends and I attended her The Darshan Project gallery show opening in NYC (go see it if you can), packed house and so much energy. The artwork looked incredible. Congrats, Manjari!
I had a great opportunity to visit New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week - the show of a very talented Korean Fashion designer PARKCHOONMOO. Here is how things looked from the front row seat :-)
Of course I couldn’t help but admire all the photographers …. :-)
And here’s the designer behind the brand, with my fabulous friend-model Yen Kim.

A year ago I lost my uncle to cancer. You think you know how to deal with loss, until loss actually happens. There it is - strong, powerful, aggressive and ruthless. Selfish. Cold. Sad. Fast. Slow. A year ago. A month ago. Yesterday. 10 years ago. No matter when loss happens, it hurts the same. No matter how you lost someone you love, it hurts the same. All you can do is remember. Truth. That moment. And this IS my dedication.
“I could have lost myself so many times, but you didn’t ask me to be weak, you asked me to be me. If only I could say ‘Thank you’ again, I would. “
"In the memory of" is not really a project yet, nor it is an assignment or a quest for beauty or perfection. I don’t know what it is yet. I’m photographing people who look for ways to devote a moment in time to someone they lost…I watch them honor, remember, look back… just like I do. More coming soon….
