The opening reception of my exhibit in NY was a blast. It was a bit of a freak to walk around the bizarro but wonderful world that is Times Square at dusk and enter the Conde Nast building right there where my show is.
New York Times reporter Corey Kilgannon came to the opening – he’s a fellow lover of urban rot. Two days later we were out shooting crumbling structures at night in Brooklyn for a story that will be out in a few
days. There was also a NY Times photographer documenting my habits in the wild. They got a taste of what I go through when cops caught us in the wrong place at the wrong time. Can’t wait to read it!
I stay with Satchel Jones (left) when I’m in NY. He’s a gifted singer, songwriter who I met when I was a regular at the Ypsilanti, MI dive bar, T.C’s Speakeasy. He usually keeps me up til 3 or 4am.
Gerry Wagschal (center) and I grew up together. He’s my best friend and my NY agent. We’ve had many adventures together. Xavier (right) came to the opening when he heard there was free food and booze.
