This last weekend I saw the former Limelight nightclub that was turned into a mall by the NY developer Jack Menashe.  It was a marketplace of sorts, back in the early nineties, when I used to photograph there.  Now they are just selling different stuff.  They have mannequins positioned where the stage used to be, assuming, I guess, that many of today’s shoppers are also former club goers.  It made me think while I was in there how there used to be such an uproar when NYC became a little bit more of a mall.  Looks like most residents these days would rather have a mall than a nightclub.  Below are the photographs I made there circa 1992 and it’s current state.

I attended the opening Of Bodies and Other Things the exhibit of ICP full time students on Friday night.  Sadly I got there only as they were blinking the lights for everyone to leave.  But there was a lot of amazing work there (even in the dark).  I will be heading back to give you a better report.

Congratulations to all the 2009-2010 full-time students at International Center for Photography for finishing the grueling certificate program there.  Their work will be featured in the year end exhibit, Of Bodies And Other Things, opening tonight running through August 15th.  More about my talented students to come… in the meantime, here are class portraits of my two classes this year:

I am moved to make class portraits every year influenced by my own beloved teacher and mentor Lois Conner.  Below are portraits she made of my class in 1986 with her 7″x17″ camera at School of Visual Arts where I went for undergrad.  I was 20 years old.

Every great trip has to start somewhere and this blog might as well start here.  I invite you to join me as I share my inspirations, travels and thoughts as I live my life as a photographer.
