Madoff's New Home

Tucker Milligan, 7, Central Auto Sales & Service, Butner, N.C., 2009.

This past Friday I traveled to Butner, NC, with a reporter from the Wall Street Journal. Ponzi scheme king Bernie Madoff is serving out his sentance at the federal prison North of town. The story focused on the Butner's origins as a POW camp for german soldiers and its current hard economic times - detailing a lack of sympathy for Madoff. Read the full article.

Pyrotechnical Institute

Years of careful research in the pyrotechnical arts resulted in a stunning display for the fine folks of Olney, Illinois this past weekend. My esteemed colleagues, Prof. Haglund, and Mayor Lambird, set the night sky aglow and managed to walk away without injury, say for our deteariating eardrums. We would like to thank the fine folks at St. Pepper's across the Indiania state line for providing our artilery for the evening and to the Lambird family for hosting and funding our efforts to further the enjoyment of anyone within a five mile radius of the farm.

Boom Town

Rocket City, South Of The Border, Dillon, S.C.

I've always lived in a state where the purchase of high-grade fireworks is illegal. This has made for some phenomenal road trips and big receipts, "because you never know when we'll make it back again."

Mt. Moriah

A film negative really does posses magic. It can fill you with all sorts of doubt. Then it rewards your diligence and renews your faith in the original form. For a moment, this shoot with the righteous Mt. Moriah was unusually tense as the wayward leaning church pictured in the background sounded like it was going to collapse with all of us inside of it. I thought of photographer Richard Nickle and the moment before the Chicago Stock Exchange came crashing down upon him.

I found the stacks of simple river stones used to support the church fascinating. Surely they would not forsake us; though I did refrain from any outward expressions of blasphemy just to be sure.

Summer Fashion

Summer in Durham means droves of modern dancers can be found skipping across intersections and riding around in brightly colored buses. A few donated their time to try on some interesting fashions for a recent shoot.

TRKfest Music Festival

TRKfest 2009

The fine folks at Trekky Records put on a delightful music festival with a line-up comprised of all local music. There was also free haircuts, musical chairs and a pants-off dance-off. Looking forward to next year's show.
