Breck Woolsey for Modern Luxury




Breck is an very talented interior designer based here in Dallas. I had the privilege of shooting his portrait for the current issue of Modern Luxury. Breck was an extraordinarily fun and enthusiastic subject. We ended up shooting for a couple of hours, every now and then taking a break to talk about music, style and travel. It was a blast. I wish they could all be like this one.

Here are a couple of other versions and outtakes:

NYC, How I Miss Thee...



It's been a while since I've had a chance to visit New York, and I'm thinking it's about time I head back east. Fall seems like a good time to see some old friends, set up some portfolio showings, and swing by my favorite optical shop, MOSCOT, for a pair of these:

Las Meninas, After Velazquez


When we were in Barcelona, we visited the Museu Picasso. There's an entire room dedicated to his series 'Las Meninas, after Velazquez' and I found it extremely inspiring. I guess I never fully grasped how absolutely devoted Picasso was to his craft. In the span of only four months, he painted fifty eight interpretations of Velazquez' work.

Las Meninas by Diego Velazquez

The museum describes his series as an "exhaustive study of form, rhythm, colour and movement." It was incredible to see these in person, imagining Picasso at work, studiously examining his own technique and approach. That examination, and the discipline with which he made it is what really impressed me.
