davidalanharvey Mr. Skater, Anthony Smallwood, @brokensquare, his board in a goodbye gesture, leaves my loft this morning. Tony has a book to do. For years he's been documenting pool skating in Washington DC. Maybe you know what pool skating is, maybe you don't. Yet for sure it ends up a fascinating documentary for skateboarders as well as for folks who had no idea about a group of skateboarders who use satellite imagery to find abandoned swimming pools and then go clean them and yes skate them. Cool stuff. BurnBooks will publish this book later this year. Stay tuned. #BurnBooks #475KentAve #poolskating 1d

davidalanharvey @vbley @sunnykhalsaphoto I love this building. Step out your front door and head for the rooftop on a mild day and you're gonna make a new friend. So it was as I was hiking up to the roof that I found these two professional artists doing a shoot. The afternoon light makes every floor a photographers dream studio. 2d

davidalanharvey My new version of "Tell It Like It Is" from 1967 is printed and bound. Ready for distribution and sale soon. I am only waiting for the components of the 100 copies only edition. There will be in the limited edition all 38 contact sheets, a darkroom silver gelatin print made with great care by me, an exact replica of the original $2. booklet and the new book itself. An assemblage intended for collectors and universities. A scholarly package.This work is of the Liggins family photographed by me in the summer of 1967. Retro in a way and brand new in another way. 50% of the new book has pictures not included in the original booklet. So it's truly a discovery even for me. I re edited after 48 years of not even seeing the contact sheets. What I love most about this is my reuniting with the Liggins family after all these years. Lois Liggins will join me at Look3.org Festival of Photograph for the 32 print exhibition. Join Lois and me and the whole BurnMagazine team. @look3festival #tellitlikeitis #burnmagazine 3d

  •   davidalanharvey @dee_inna I have in my hands the book and the darkroom prints. I will be on press this week for the replicas. The box to put it all in is being built. So once I have all the pieces together, then I can distribute. I am guessing mid May before its all done. It's like building a house. First one thing, then the other. No short cuts. 2d

davidalanharvey I will spend this week in New York. "The Kibbutz", my NYC home for about 7 years may become a real photo focus for me. A few other Magnum photogs have lived here but now it's only @christopherandersonphoto, @michaelchristopherbrown and myself. It's a classic loft ex light factory building sitting right on the East River with an amazing rooftop view of Manhattan. Characters live here. It's a community. That won't last. Developers will kill this place sooner rather than later. So I might start shooting in earnest. Today there was an elevator shaft fire and I took this picture of passersby. Never a dull moment at The Kibbutz. 5d
  •   ojhammel Wow! Amazing Photo 4d
  •   patricialaydorsey David, I think you're smart to do this sooner rather than later. Everybody tells me that Williamsburg has become *THE* place to live! Its special character will not last long. 3d
  •   brennanphotoguy @davidalanharvey I'd love to meet you sometime. I live in Williamsburg when I'm not working in the Used Dept at B&H. 3d
  •   maiya.rose Loooooool @_cenay_ 3d
  •   davidalanharvey @brennanphotoguy Hi Brennan. We have various photo gatherings at my loft . Keep your eye on BurnMagazine.org for announcements..I will be pleased to meet you. 2d
  •   davidalanharvey @patricialaydorsey You are absolutely right..Soon it will be just too trendy here. You wouldn't even believe how it's changed since you last here. Of course I already have a couple of pictures of you and the gang here for the book if I do it. Too bad our timing for NYC was just a bit off for your last trip. Love to get you back here at some point. 2d
  •   patricialaydorsey @davidalanharvey Somehow NYC and I manage to connect every so often and I'm sure our paths will cross there again. But before then, I'll be seeing you at LOOK3! 2d
  •   brennanphotoguy Awesome, I'll definitely be on the lookout. 2d

davidalanharvey My living room is a mess. The kind of chaos where I thrive. Pictures all over the floor. Pictures all over the tables and chairs and taped to the walls. We are swimming in pictures. Kaya and I are making a dummy for my upcoming zine BeachGames. Runs to the copy shop, pizza ordered in, fresh spring breeze, doors all opened and a fire going just to have a fire going. This is no way to do a dummy. Best to start on a wall. Yet the mood hit and so we just started doing it. These hand crafted dummies become one of a kind objects. Rough. Ragged. Raw. This work from Rio is brand new and all from the last 10 months. Fast work. Not to be put on a pedestal. Yet I hope I will draw you in. Force you to feel it too. The whole point of all my work. So it's very fortuitous that simultaneously I am publishing Tell It Like It Is my reprint from 1967 and BeachGames from a few weeks ago. Both large print exhibitions at Look3.org in June. So I am putting in long days long nights. The spring breeze brings energy. It's always about the energy. #beachgames #obx #BurnBooks 2w

davidalanharvey Kaya Lee Berne, my all around keep my life straight first assistant, has come to my home to help me set my darkroom for the 100 8x10 prints I will personally print for the limited edition version of my upcoming Tell It Like It Is. While we are mixing chemicals for the darkroom we are here testing the Leica Monochrom up against the Fuji x100T set on b&w mode. This Instagram shot is the Monochrom shot which does have a file the Fuji cannot match . Right out of the camera the monochrome looks like an exhibition print yes even on the screen. Done deal. BUT I will bet the Fuji would compete if it was a monochrom -- minus those filters. Fuji file great and if you didn't see the Leica you would be pleased. Leica has very slow buffer. Fuji super fast. Leica expensive. Fuji a great deal. Anyway we are all b&w mode for the moment. #obx #leica #monochrom #tellitlikeitis 2w

davidalanharvey An exhibition life sized test print hangs on my door at home. That's Lois Liggins,7,in 1967. Lois and I are friends again now. She was the cover subject for the original Tell It Like It Is and now the cover for the new reprint coming any day now . I am starting to print for a show for the upcoming Look3 photo fest. I am hoping Lois, now 56, will join me at LOOK3.org #look3 #tellitlikeitis 2w

davidalanharvey Storm hits Copacabana. One of my most recent Rio pictures and part of my final shoot for BeachGames zine upcoming. Also soon to be featured in Leica M magazine as part of my Brazil portfolio. I worked with the Monochrome for a month and fell in love with the dreamy files. Some other more affordable manufacturer needs to make a mono b&w only camera. However many thnx to Leica for the loaner. I love the user friendly simplicity as I always have with Leica my entire career. #monochrom #leica #copacabana #rio #storm 3w

davidalanharvey Sunday musings. See story BurnMagazine.org So I didn't move today and for this picture taken just now I did not get out of my chair by the fire. The afternoon light always does amazing things in my house . Different every day. Here is Mike Halminski's "Seashell" and some slides that need filing and my grandmother's chair and pillows from India and woven women's belts from Maya Guatamala and my dad's sled and my photo from college and my nearly beyond repair fave porch swing..Not much going on here. Perfect. Sunday musings. 3w

  •   zacarias_35mm I stayed at the old cbd in Rio for 2 days last year (Cinelandia, Lapa, Santa Teresa...). The good shots were popping up everywhere :) Such a rich environment for street/documentary :) Specially if you're shooting in colour. Gotta go back there this year! 4w

davidalanharvey I am not a tech person at all, yet I do take pride in my ability to hand hold slow shutter speeds. Yoga trance. This image from Bahia on ISO 50 film must hv had me wide open 1.4 at a quarter of a second. I love slow film in low light. No other look quite like it. A tripod would get in the way of spontaneity. So I never carry one. Nimble works. Upcoming piece in Leica M features my Brazil work. Nice n easy #Bahia #Brazil #leica 4w

davidalanharvey Salvador, Bahia. One of the images featured in the upcoming Leica M magazine. Velvia ISO 50 film using a beer bottle as a tripod. Leica M-6. Finest workhorse camera ever. An exhibit of my Brazil work also coming up at LOOK3.org Festival of the Photograph June 10-13. Show up, buy me a beer, and I will give you the tripod in a pinch demo. #Bahia #Brazil #leica #beachgames #magnumphotos 4w

davidalanharvey Carnaval. Bahia, Brazil. One of 15 of my Brazil images being featured in the upcoming issue of Leica's M magazine. This one shot on Fuji Velvia film with a Leica M-6 and a tiny tweak of hot shoe strobe. Other work featured shot with the M-9 and photographs shot very recently for my BeachGames zine with the Monochrom. A very handsome layout to be sure. With an interview by Diego Orlando. Previous featured photographers include Anton Kusters with "Yakuza"; Alex Webb with his Rochester series; Jan Grarup and war in Africa; Bruce Gilden with NYC portraits; and Trent Parke with his "Dreamtime" essay in Australia. #Brazil #Bahia #carnaval #leica #magnumphotos #burnmagazine 4w
