Adam Baran at Butt magazine had made a request to me last week to submit photo for the BUTT blog. I sent him these photos that I had sent to Jop at magazine back in August. I made these images of myself back in August when I was assisting a photographer in Texas. The room that he had put me up in was at a bed and breakfast. It was meant to be a romantic get away in the country for the big city folk from Austin. They had never intended a 25 year old brooklyn hipster to call it home for 3 weeks. As one of the many features to the room, they had a large novelty jazzuci hot tube, and no shower. So every night when I came home for the long, hot day of assisting I would take a long bath. I made these butt inspired photos as some sort of photographic love letter for my then boyfriend Casey. Today, adam has posted them to the Butt Blog (www.buttmagazine.com) as "Monday Morning BUTT". Check it out, and expect more to come from BUTT MAG and ME.

Back in the early Fall while I was still freelancing around town, I was asked by Sadie Magazine's editor Jesse Sposato to photograph the band School of Seven Bells. For those of you that don't know, Sadie is a new on line magazine (www.sadiemagazine.com), for girls, guys and ladies. They had at the time run out takes from the photos I made of Mirror, Mirror. I was really excited about shooting SSB, as they were an up coming band I discovered though Adult Swims free mix downloads "ghostly swim". The band is really awesome, and I knew I wanted to do something bigger. I talked to my friend Ethan Whitney who's an amazingly talented prop stylist currently doing window display full time for Barneys. We came up with this great idea for a tree. We are calling it white Gothic. The images are set to run on Sadie's website soon but, here is a sneak preview for all to see. Also check out my website for images of the twin sisters, themselves.
