SUSTAIN THE ROMANCE




















Photos from "Spring Break Massacre," an Oceans of Blood fundraiser party on the Gowanus. Full gallery here. If I hadn't been working my ass off in Braddock, PA I might actually have gotten around to promoting the party BEFORE it happened. Wouldn't that have been nice.

I am also honored to be included with some of my favorite artists and photographers in the collection Smoke Bath put together by Peter Sutherland. Funds raised from the sale of the book go towards supporting Fresh Air Fund.
