I got my photo taken a few month's ago for Inside Out project, a collaboration between the artist JR, TED and communities around the world. Anyone can submit their photo to the site and pastings are happening in public spaces all over the world as a way of reasserting personal identity into the fabric of our communities. The wheatpasting of me (!) just went up on a building in DUMBO alongside many of my coworkers and other friends who work in DUMBO.

I just wrapped a fun and (sweaty) shoot for Issue 2 of Kinfolk Magazine that is all about coziness, texture and warmth. I can't share all the details yet, but will let you know when the issue is out! Thanks to my lovely lady models: Brit, Viki and Chrysanthe for spending the day with me and for lugging over all of your wares. (A few outtakes of the ladies hanging out on-location above.)

Jacob and I started renting a studio in South Williamsburg earlier this summer and this is the view out of the west-facing window. A 17-story condo is going up next door, but we are fortunate to avoid losing our view by a scant 10 feet or so. We have been spending a lot of time here these last few months -- especially Jacob -- working on the film and excitedly attacking all kinds of new projects.

I visited CP in Ithaca, where he's just started law school at Cornell. We picked early season apples at the wonderful Littletree Orchards in Newfield, NY where they had a fairytail field of lotus flowers and oversized waterlillies. We hiked through Buttermilk Falls on a muggy day and dipped our toes into the water at trail's end. We found two mushrooms along our way, and ate neither. And of course, we went to the farmers' market twice, and ate Cambodian food by the water's side. My mom insisted we buy a stem of asclepias, still in its milkweed pod stage, to take home and stick in a former-wine-jar, now-vase.
