A few words with Katie Buchanan

I've recently photographed singer song-writer Katie Buchanan on her show in NYC at Mercury Lounge, and took the opportunity to chat with her about a few other things:

One, two, three, four!

Which movie would you love to have written a song for?
Katie Buchanan: Notting Hill. That was the first non-musical movie where the music stuck with me more than the film.

If you could go back in time, who is the artist/band that you would’t miss a concert?
KB: Otis Redding.

Favorite thing to do in NYC on a day off? 
KB: Searching for the perfect almond cortado. Harder than it sounds. The Australians are getting close though (Bluestone Lane, Blackfox, Voyager, all in the running).

How would you describe your music in just one word?
KB: Layered.

VIΛ 57WEST, New York City

On a recent class I took at ICP, one of the assignments was to shoot a modern building of our choice, exploring the various angles and details. As soon as I've heard the words I already knew which one I wanted to photograph.

The VIΛ 57WEST is one of NYC’s newest residential buildings, located in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan, and was designed by the Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG).

A few words with Jesus On The Mainline

I've recently photographed NYC-based band Jesus On The Mainline on their album release show in NYC at Mercury Lounge, and took the opportunity to chat with them about a few other things:

One, two, three, four!

Which movie would you love to have written a song for?
Andrew Neesley: The first thing that comes to mind is composing a Bond movie theme song. The producers of those movies have generally hired a very wide range of artists, which I think is cool. Although many of the theme songs have never seen the light of day, they've hired acts ranging from Radiohead to Adele. Given the nature of those theme songs, composing an original song would also give me a chance to stretch my orchestration chops. I think it would be a blast.

If you could go back in time, who is the artist/band that you would’t miss a concert?
AN: Miles Davis, Clifford Brown, or Louis Armstrong. I'm a jazz trumpet player--at any given time of the day, it's likely I have one of their solos running through my head.

Favorite thing to do in NYC on a day off? 
AN: Day off? What is that? 😎 Haha. A fun day would be brunch at Quality Eats and an afternoon Yankee game.

How would you describe your music in just one word?
Heat.

Henri Cartier-Bresson • India in Full Frame

From April 21st to September 4th, The Rubin Museum of Art in NYC hosts an incredible photography exhibit by Henri Cartier-Bresson, considered by many one of the great masters of all time. For those who are not familiar, Bresson was the French photojournalist who created the concept of the "decisive moment" in photography.

In this show, we are invited to dive into 69 photographs from the photographer’s many travels to India, including his world famous series with India’s great leader Mahatma Gandhi, before and right after his death in 1948.
