Artist Interview: LeSean Thomas

While I was Senior Producer at Freestyle Collective back in 2009ish (NYC), we had the opportunity to shoot interviews with some really fantastic artists. Here’s one of my favorites…enjoy.

Photo 365:  Transfiguration

Photo series I’m featuring on Etsy this week. I photographed this statue of Jesus in 1999 at the Church of the Transfiguration in Manhattan during one of my many photo meditations. It’s part of a diptych also for sale on my Etsy page.  These two prints are true C-prints, not digital, printed from negatives in a darkroom onto color photo paper.   Great fine art investment at $35 each print.    These are the only prints I will be making and are signed by me on the back.  Enjoy.

Remembering

Image

Remember these brave men in the fire house next door to my east village apt
the dust covered people walking home in shock
running to the blood banks to see if our blood type is what they wanted…
stuffing socks in the window corners to keep smoke from entering our apt
the deafening silence but for sirens and engines …
of mobile mortuaries..
and how all of New York City became brothers
and sisters…
helping one another.

Buckley On the Brain

Recently a friend posted a Jeff Buckley video on facebook and I was immediately transported back in time to the late 90’s, my first year in NYC, living as a poor struggling artist in the East Village. An actor friend introduced me to Jeff Buckley’s album “Grace.” This song most definitely should be included in the soundtrack of my life. Stop, listen and if you don’t know who he is… learn. If you know music, you should know who Jeff Buckley is.
