So happy I saw Daniel Johnston the other night. Despite that it was dubbed his “last tour” I’m not going to believe that as I said to his brother, who replied, “Who knows, I don’t even know..” My first time seeing him was in Seattle in 2000 when he opened for a then hardly known band The White Stripes. I thought that would be my last. He was even more magical 17 years later, even his band teared up..I can’t find a more fitting word than genius.. #TrueLoveWillFindYouInTheEnd❤️ #danieljohnston #hihowareyou @hihowareyouofficial
Hey internet I’m teaching a 6 week course on Music and Event Photography at the awesome @brklyncentral starting Oct 26th. We will be going to shows and working hard, but I’ll share the mistakes I’ve made so you can save time guessing and quickly learn how to not be like that one guy bouncing his flash off a black venue ceiling wondering why his photos suck. This prob doesn’t apply to most of my photo friends, but if it interests you go to www.wearebkc.com for details. DM or email me if you want to know more. Class is limited to 12.. xx .

@princessnokia last night at @villainstagram. This first photo, mirrors my expression when head security dude had me kicked out cuz I asked for water when I almost fainted (sober) from the heat and cigarette smoke inside. Luckily she jumped in the crowd during the first song, cuz that’s all I saw. My first time at Villian, and def my last. F that place!
Nothing hurts me so deeply than when someone so young is robbed of life from fucking cancer. 4 of my friends in the last 5 years, and many others I didn't know, whom were friends to many. All under the age of 42. It makes me so fn mad. This isn't "my loss" this is everyone's loss.
When is this country going to stop prioritizing building walls and bombing other countries and put serious resources in to our HEALTH CARE system FIRST? Can we just ALL refuse to pay taxes until medical coverage is free and available to all? And put this money in to finding a cure for cancer?? Fuck this country's rulers ("leaders" leading us in to a vacuous pit of disrepair) and their blatant disregard and neglect for the lives of those who live here. No one should have to rely on fucking Kickstarter donations for medical coverage to continue living, as all of those affected by this disease have had to do simply because our government will not provide. It NEVER has. We deserve better. The entire planet does.

@thosedarlins this photo I took of her and Nikki Kvarnis (R) backstage at 4Knots Fest 2014.. which Jessi seamlessly orchestrated so perfectly I only took two frames. Her song "Ain't Afraid" is nothing less than haunting, ironically written 3 years prior to diagnosis. Rest in Power xx #wedeservebetter #fuckcancer
@afropunk today.. sorta blew it on photos with a broken lens and somehow feeling off, but got a few good moments + @sza @princessnokia @jojoabot
Post storm from Brooklyn. Shout out to my neighbor @extraniceness for leaving his reggae record in flip flops to pull the roof door shut for me when I got it stuck climbing up a mildly functioning sketchy ladder to film the lightning (not pictured) ⚡️⚡️😂
Before dawn on Coney Island followed by sunrise thunderstorm. I swear the sky is not doctored with filters, it truly looked like a hallucinogenic trip, still the camera did it no justice.
Exactly 2 years ago I tore 89% of the calf muscle in my left leg and thought it would be ok if I made my mind keep telling my body it was, following the 3 months I was unable to walk. That was incorrect I've discovered, still dealing with the constant residual effects of said injury. Yet that attitude allowed me to think it was perfectly normal to get Margaret Cho half naked in bed smoking weed for High Times and climb on top of her in a fancy hotel bed for and stuff her cleavage with prop buds, despite that every step I took felt like an additional bullet wound to my calf. But I didn't feel a thing in this position, because the only cure for pain is not the big pharma pills but creating new shit/art and leaving something worthy behind. Reminding myself of what I need to remember and not get it twisted, cuz it's easy to forget. 📷: @ursula_mann
Outtakes from Pride Parade on Sunday. Generally the ones that go unpublished are the ones I like best.
#SubwaySeries outtakes I randomly found from 2 years or so ago(?) for the book I'll probably delay another few months or a year? My emotions delay production in general, which I know is detrimental... anyone have any tips??? .. I went to a cafe to work (how I do Friday nights) and forgot the stupid Apple head phone port adapter to listen to audio so I'm stuck drinking tequila and going thru old random stuff on computer, not without said emotions .. but yo happy summer.
Black Lives Matter NYC march from Harlem to Trump Towers on Saturday following the aquittal of Philando Castile's killer. A decision made by a jury comprised of 10 white men and 2 black. In the last image here, the police officer took away the president of the BLMNY groups megaphone for speaking about justice "without a permit".

Best time of the year in New York is summer. And the start of Pride..which really isn't one day but all damn summer in this city. After these long, dark and stormy months, people really earned this. I feel like it's appropriate to say it's about to get "lit" but I'm kinda too old for that term, so I'll just say thank you people for being you, keepin' it weird, and letting me blast you with my flash. Happy Friday!! #pride2017 #pride🌈
WuTang at @govballnyc this weekend for @brooklynvegan. I forgot how much I've seen and heard since jet lag kicked my ass and I woke up days later to recall I drifted like a zombie all week.. #wutangclanaintnothintofuckwit #jetlagainteasy
I spent the majority of a 3 day music festival looking for teenagers embracing or making out to shoot like a creep. It wasn't easy but here are a few of them at Governors Ball this weekend @govballnyc @randallsisland
Childish Gambino spitting and some of his many fascinating expressions @govballnyc last night.
