Last night’s super blood moon eclipse was quite a spectacular, breathtaking sight. I hope you got a chance to see it since the next one won’t be for another 18 years!

Into the Wild 

 I’m on a mission to get a dome housing for my camera, to experiment more with separating the water from the air.

| HOME SWEET HOME |  

 After 4.5 years of living here and numerous flights back and forth, this is the closest fly by I’ve ever experienced over Manhattan 😍 

 It’s fascinating how such a simple, fleeting moment of beauty can really stop you in your tracks.  

 And I’m so excited to be back home!

| THE MOMENT LIGHT BEGINS | 

 I started a new exciting project with @andrewmklein that entailed multiple 5 am call times to catch that magic morning light. 

 When you’re not a morning person but you’re willing to wake up at 4 am several days in a row for a project, something must be right.  

 We look forward to sharing more as we get geared up to tell unexpected stories in Africa this summer!

I had a blast working on this JR piece about immigration that is on the cover of today’s New York Times Magazine, Walking New York.  

 “We pasted Elmar, 20 years old who came from Azerbaijan, on the floor of Flatiron Plaza in New York City. The image was 150 feet high. People walked on him all day and no one really noticed him. Today he is on the cover of NY Times Magazine while everyone else is in the shadow.”

I’m so honored to have my first (and hopefully not my last) NY Times assignment published on page A16 of today’s paper. If you get a copy, check it out or click on this link to read the article and watch the video online:

 My heart is full, absolutely grateful, and still a bit shocked.

It was an honor filming JR and his team paste on the outside windows of the NYC Ballet today, especially since I’m a huge fan of his work and he’s one of my favorite artists (NYC can be so magical). I was impressed by how hard JR and his crew works, and they truly put a tremendous amount of heart and soul into each installation and pasting they do. JR is collaborating with the NYC Ballet and I’m very much looking forward to the opening night next week on January 23rd. Hope to see you there!
