Born on Long Island, New York, in 1989, there has always been a consistent presence of photography in my life; whether it be passing my father's slide prints that don the wall on my way to bed,...
A feature in the New Republic concerning KKK and Neo Nazi activity in the age of Trump. Despite momentum being ramped up in the previous decade, the movement has evolved in an effort to become more palatable to the American public.
Tomorrow evening at the ICP museum, I, along with colleagues and friends Cédric von Niederhäusern and Sarah Blesener, will be discussing our experiences photographing American politics in 2016 and the issues that are involved within the national conversation. Sarah and Cedric will primarily be talking about the their work on the public discourse over the upcoming elections and I will be presenting work from the RNC as well as my other projects relevant to the national discourse (KKK/White Power movement, civilian border patrol and Patriot movement).
Who would have thought four years ago when I made the leap into photography that it would bring me here. Excited to share that video footage/stills of my project on the KKK/Neo Nazi movement in the US has made its way to the big screen with none other than Harry Potter himself.
"Apart from the low thunder of airport traffic, the loudest sound in Hangar 17 is the buzz of fluorescent ballasts, echoing around the 1.8-acre structure. Water drips on a tent over a 10-foot-long metal tangle that would be unrecognizable as a vehicle if it did not have wheels."
The word surreal would be a true understatement of the experience I felt photographing the inside of Hangar 17 at JFK's International Airport. Inside this hangar is where the remaining artifacts from September 11, 2001 rest until the end of this summer, when the hangar is set to close. The deafening silence is unable to be reconciled with inside the tent where a rusted vehicle that looks as if it went through a pasta maker, sits. If I had not known where I was or what I was looking at, I could have easily been convinced that the object in front of me was part of a modern art exhibit, and not the largest terrorist attack on US soil.
As I moved from artifact to artifact I became aware that all of the remaining items were to be donated to varous museums, foundations, fire houses etc, on the condition that they be on display for the public.
Walking passed the WTC Building 5 plaza signage, I realized that this was the quietest place in not just one of the busiest airports, but in the entire city.
I had the pleasure of photographing the village of Roslyn on Long Island for the NY Times Real Estate section, "Living In" a few weeks ago. A village that is not far from my hometown and where I reside now, but it was great to reall explore a quaint hint of New England just around the corner. Link below
