Thinking about process: In high-school, I used to think even cropping an image was cheating on my own process. Now, well over a decade later, I find myself patching an open eye onto one of my closed-eyed subjects. It's an experiment and I'm still mixed about- not sure I want to acceptably allow this into my process. I'll think on it...

Daniel Cooney (of Daniel Cooney Fine Art) recently recommended Sarah to Magnet Media's Zoom-In Online TV to be interviewed as part of the new series called VIEWFINDERS, showcasing video interviews with photographers. She ended up doing an interview with Viewfinders at Cooney's Gallery, you can check it out HERE.

From blogs to printed publications, there were several reviews of Sarah's recent Tableau Vivant event. Hudson Valley News, a small print publication based in Rhinebeck NY, wrote a great piece on the evening. You can also check out the review by Time Out New York - a positive review, despite the "boobs and booze" emphasis. It seems the writer missed out on any of the performance's additional offerings, below the surface - but had a good time regardless! Here, you'll find a wonderful comment with particularly thoughtful, revealing content, blogged in response to the Time Out article.

I've opened up a New Miniature Edition size for tiny affordable prints. They are $200 each. The edition is 13 and the mini-diorama-matchbox size is 2x3. I imagine these hanging in multiples near each other or even touching in frames.

For those of you new to my blog, when not photographing, I sing with and arrange music with my Balkan a Capella vocal ensemble, Black Sea Hotel. We just found out that our first full-length CD, hot off the press, has been featured as the Editor's Pick on CD Baby today with a nice little review. YAY! Check it out!:  http://cdbaby.com

Check out 1000 Words Photography Magazine. Sarah's featured on their home page this month - and, if you log into her Gallery there, you can read an essay written by Cara Philips about Sarah's photography called Delight and Horror. She opens with this quote by Edmund Burke: "...I think there are reasons in nature, why the obscure idea, when properly conveyed, should be more affecting than the clear. It is our ignorance of things that causes all our admiration, and chiefly excites our passions."

Sarah was mentioned in New York Magazine's segment The Best and Worst of November Fashion Magazines for her Yves St Laurent Surface Magazine shoot (nude seniors paired with fashion models, image spread #12 in slideshow).

I just got back on the 9th from Europe... still jet-lagged I suppose, since my head is in some funny kind of unexplainable cloud. Can't really remember the last time I experienced jet-lag quite like this. I spent time with London, Paris, and then Barcelona. It was spectacular. I spent countless hours laughing uproariously with my sister and with my family and with my friend April. I also remember standing stark still in...
