I’ve been shooting bands and artists. This spring/summer planning on taking trips upstate, getting some intimate road trip shoots and making a small book. I’m also curating an exhibition featuring 5 local photographers that I’m planning on showing at a gallery downtown.

Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

I’m inspired by old album covers and movies. I’m endlessly inspired by the works of David Bellemere, Jonathan Leder, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sam Haskins, William Eggleston. As far as emerging artists, Canyon Casator is an incredibly talented painter based in Brooklyn.
