Seeking input for a new project…

How do we grow in understanding? I’m working with the Interfaith Center to create a new public art project that challenges us to dare to understand each other: to bridge differences & create dialogue both between individuals of various religious affiliations, and between those who consider themselves religious & those who don’t, so that we might better work together in building the world that we want to live in. J…

Civic Participation: (get involved!)

This is Andrew Stober. He’s running for City Council as an Independent this fall. I can’t claim to know a lot about politics, but I know that while we can get distracted by a lot of news on a global level, the place where we really make our impact is on the local one.…

A prison visit… [sort of]

get_the_title()

The other day, I went to jail… I’ve never been to prison before. When the US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, it’s an interesting reflection on my privileged situation that I’ve really really barely had any brushes with the criminal justice system whatsoever, nor known many people who’ve done time.…

The Tool Library (an invitation)

get_the_title()

Picture your favorite tool: For me, recently, it was a pole saw that I used to trim the dead branches on the tree in our back yard. But tree-trimming isn’t a regular activity of mine, and if I’d bought a pole saw, it would have probably sat in my basement unused for a few years. Why waste money and resources on something used so infrequently? That’s where the West Philly Tool Library comes in. (Not familiar with them? Stop by…

Radical Hospitality

An invitation: The other day, Chef Steve taught me a better way to wrap a burrito. Rather than reveal his secret technique of burrito wrapping, I’m going to invite you to learn from him directly… not just about burritos, but about radical hospitality.…

Calling all Yogis!

get_the_title()

I took this picture at Studio34 back in 2013 for their yoga teacher training manual. In the next couple weeks, I’m putting together a community yoga photo event.  It will be similar to my How Philly Moves sessions, but rather than featuring dance, we’ll be doing yoga postures. (Please help me spread the word! Interested? Signup form is here. UPDATE: The first event has passed, but please sign up for occasional update…

An invitation to Interfaith work

get_the_title()

I met Imam Miller last spring while photographing the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia‘s annual concert & awards presentation (he’s on their board, and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.) It was a gorgeous evening, and one whose importance is all the more important today as recent events in Paris (and the unfortunate reactions to them) highlight the need for greater interfaith understanding and c…

The Philadelphia School’s gorgeous new website

I want to give a quick shoutout to The Philadelphia School, one of my favorite new partners, for their gorgeous new website.…

My father’s collections…

get_the_title()

Jacques Tiziou, circa 1975, by Jean-Pierre Martin Long before I was a photographer, my father was one. He specialized in the aerospace industry, and chronicled a large part of mankind’s quest to explore space. Over the course of his career, he’s amassed an impressive archive of both historical documents and collectible memorabilia from the space program. Now, as he transitions into retirement, we’re looking for…
