Photos from today's Family Planning Advocates Day of Action. Over a thousand New Yorkers gathered in the Empire State Plaza Convention Center for a Planned Parenthood rally, featuring PP President Cecile Richards and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo. Afterwards, they mobilized into groups and lobbied their representatives.
Day 9 of Trump's presidency continued with protests across the country. The reason for the protests today was his executive action to ban Muslims from certain countries from entering the United States. As noted by many news organizations, such as NPR and the Washington Post, only those from predominately-Muslim countries Trump has no financial ties to were put on his refugee ban list. People from countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar which have actual links to terrorism attacks in the US, are still allowed here. Massive protests erupted last night in airports around the country as refugees, who were in the air at the time of Trump's signing of the ban, were detained by US Customs.
These photos are from a protest started by CAIR Massachusetts held in Copely Square in Boston, MA on January 29,2017.
This has been the first election that have been politically aware. I formed my own opinions, despite what my mother says about my education or the media's bias. I voted. I was a part of the process. After the election, I went to NYC to photograph the #NotMyPresident protest that was happening there in front of Trump Tower. People were still in shock. Fear was growing among those in marginalized communities. It was such a difference covering the protests of Trump's Inauguration and the Women's March the next day.
People from all over the country descended on Washington, D.C. They were fired up. These photos show the people who want better. Photographed for the San Francisco Examiner.
On November 12, 2016 numerous peaceful protests and gatherings were held in NYC in reaction to Tuesday's election naming Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America. Trump's campaign has criticized for being racist, bigoted, and misogynistic. These photos are from a protest that formed around noon in Union Square and then marched down 5th Avenue to Trump Tower. More than 10,000 people were in attendance. Some of the chants included, "Shame," "We reject the president-elect," "My body, my choice," and "No hate, no fear, refugees/immigrants are welcome here."
I may not have networked or drank as much as I intended at Geekfest DC this past weekend, but at least used my camera. Nothing really as intimidating as photographing a room full of photographers. These photos are from Saturday night's festivities where we witnessed the magnificent pan chug. All shot with my Holga lens on my Canon dSLR, which I think worked splendidly with party scenes and direct flash, even though 60mm is far closer than anything I normally use.
The bi-annual chalk festival in New Paltz took place this weekend from July 22-24. Dozens of artists from across the country came to participate. They created works using only chalk and pastels and based them on popular photos or references like Spock and Harry Potter or their own doodles.
The 2016 Victory Cup in Pawling is an annual polo event for charity. The day included tastings of local spirits and fare, live music, a car show, a polo match, and a farm-to-table dinner.
This is a glimpse at a Super Bowl 50 party in Virginia Beach shot by me and 7-year-old Natalie A. She loved using my camera. She took dozens of photos, directing people and getting all up in everyone's faces, making sure everyone was photographed.
The evening of Christmas 2015 was one filled with smiles, laughter, and wine. This is my family.
A little selection of images from the 2015 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the crowd.
The Cortaca Jug is a football game that goes on every year at the end of the regular football season between college rivals SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College. The event is notorious for the large amount alcohol consumed by students. 2015 was the sixth year in a row Cortland won.
Shot for S.I. Newhouse's Fall Workshop. I followed my classmate, Alec Erlebacher, on his shoot with Barbara Randall, and captured her and her large American Girl doll collections.
For my Eddie Adams workshop story, I was given the Fitzpatrick family, a Greek Orthodox family in Central New York. On the morning of Sunday, October 11, part of the family went to church in Middletown, where the father, James, was the visiting priest.
