Curated and hosted by Gina Healy, this show focused on photographers who are known primarily for other creative pursuits. 7 of my photographs were chosen and shown. These are two of them: Soundcheck and South Street.

The first is a photo of me in front of my wall of photos by Rosie Kahn.
I also did a reading at the gallery, photo by Rosita Roldan.
NOVEMBER 10, 2017: HOWL Happening!
I was  so happy to open this show, which was linked to the Club 57 exhibit at MOMA. Joff Wilson, guitarist, and Walter Steding, violinist, performed with me.
My work was also included in the anthology being celebrated, "City Primeval: New York, Berlin, Prague," an anthology written and curated by Robert Carrithers and Louis Armand.

The book title was also the name of the exhibit, which was emcee'd by Penny Arcade. Other performers included Tish and Snooky, Steve Dalichinsky, Lady Gaby from Berlin, Gary Ray, and Julius Klein.

"City Primeval: New York, Berlin, Prague" documents the zeitgeist of art and culture from the the late 70's underground scenes to the present. There are over 50 contributors including Lydia Lunch, Sara Driver, Nick Zedd, and this writer. The two photos below are by Robert Carrithers and Louis Constant Duit.
