I am happy to say that I have a story about the Chinese Olympic weightlifting team on Nowness today. An amazing day at the Chinese national sports training center in Beijing.
I had the honor of photographing Wu Jingbiao (吴景彪), Zhang Jie (张杰) Lu Xiaojun (吕小军), Zhou Lulu (周璐璐), Li Xueying (李雪英) and Tian Yuan (田源).
Zhou Lulu is considered the worlds strongest women after winning the gold medal and beating the world record in the process! Lu Xiaojun both won a gold medal and beat the world record as well. Li Xueying won a gold medel and Wu Jingbiao won a Silver Medal.

A couple of months ago I shot a story for Barnard Magazine about alumnae in the military. It was a pleasure to meet such interesting and smart women and hear their stories about life in the military.

The last thing I will post about the UB 2011 Calendar for the year. It's a great one. Andrew Hetherington (the excellent photographer) writes about his experience of being the proud father of a kitty who didn't make the cut. Check it out here. And a bonus - sign up on the mailing list and I will send you a free kitty print.

Just got back from a month in China and Taiwan (6th trip to china this year!).
A feature I shot for the DEC/JAN 2011 issue of Dwell about a conversion of an old school house in Milford PA.
When I started out as a photographer I was way too shy to take portraits of people I didn’t know. I mostly shot architecture. It was lonely. I decided I needed to change. I gave myself an assignment to hang out in parks and take portraits of people. The two rules I gave myself were 1) I had to ask if I could take their pictures, and 2) the more awkward I felt about asking them the more I forced myself to. At the beginning of this exercise it would sometimes take me 30 minutes before getting the courage up to approach – I would follow them through central park at a distance hating myself – feeling like a stalker. I worked on this more and more till I felt comfortable approaching strangers.
In New York people say yes 99% of the time when I ask. I tried the same thing in Miami and people also said yes – but thought I was trying to pick them up. In LA it’s hard to get close enough to people to be able to ask.
