Gowanus Wild by Miska Draskoczy
Edited and sequenced 57 images; consulted on print image selection for collector's edition
Gowanus Wild is a photographic exploration of nature and wilderness in the contaminated industrial neighborhood of Gowanus, Brooklyn. As the Gowanus Canal has been declared a federal Superfund site and seen over 150 years of industrial abuse, the images reveal just how tenacious nature can be when faced with grave environmental destruction. Accompanying texts include an essay by Gowanus Canal Conservancy director Andrea Parker and nine poems and an essay by photographer Miska Draskoczy.
Out of Fashion by Landon Nordeman
Consulted on edit and sequence of 112 images; consulted on copy for publisher's sales materials
For the past four years photographer Landon Nordeman has been regularly dispatched byNew York Magazine and The New York Times to document the world of fashion. Shooting hundreds of shows backstage in New York, Milan and Paris, Nordeman brings a fresh, joyous and bold perspective to contemporary photography. In the over-photographed digital culture of fashion today, Nordeman’s approach cuts through the clutter. He sees photographs where most people don’t, and he has gained an enormous following on Instagram for his surprising images, filled with vivid color, complex gestures and funny juxtapositions. Finding the enduring in the ephemeral, Nordeman blurs the line between reality and fiction, document and art, and shows the exclusive world of fashion to itself and to us as never before.
