Document NYC’s Changing Urban Landscape… From the Inside Out

Out My Window NYC Gail Albert Halaban contacted me about her brilliant documentary project and I wanted to post it as quickly as I could.

Out My Window NYC

Gail Albert Halaban, photographer, in collaboration with the Design Trust for Public Space is working on a documentary photography project about people and their views in New York City and beyond.

Be part of a documentary photography project…

We are looking for all types of people that have all types of views that are descriptive to New York City.

If you look out your window and see a pizza parlor, or you have a view of a bridge or some other famous landmark, you have a view of where the World Trade Center used to be, you have a view into other people’s windows, or you have a view of buildings being renovated, then we are looking to photograph you and your view. Basically, we are looking for all types of people and views that describe the old and the new New York, and the ever changing skyline. If you live in Manhattan, Queens, New Jersey, Brooklyn, the Bronx, or Staten Island, and want to be a part of this photography project, please contact us at newyorkviews@gmail.com with a jpg of you and your view today! You will receive a print for your participation.

My buddy Brian took these shots on his way up to a Pumpkin Festival on Washington Street in Keene, New Hampshire. More pumpkin facts: as in most vine flowers, pumpkin flowers are either male or female (rarely hermaphroditic or perfect flowers- which contain both male and female flower parts – as in roses).

Joni Has a Shine on Reverend Carlton Pearson

Shine on Reverend Pearson
Who threw away
The vain old God…” Joni Mitchell, Shine

On November 19th, I’m scheduled to speak at a dinner and exhibition of my work at the Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue and 29th Street in Manhattan @ 6PM as part of their “GIFTS” program, an LGBT outreach:

GIFTS is a gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered community at Marble Collegiate Church that seeks to reconcile spirituality and sexuality through God’s love. By celebrating the common threads between our lives and faith journeys, we embrace our spiritual inheritance. We welcome all who wish to grow and be energized through Christian fellowship and service.

In my search for a way to address issues of “faith” (in both Science & Religion) which I’ve always approached with skepticism and downright cynicism, I’ve become aware of the work of Reverend Carlton Pearson by way of Joni Mitchell. Mitchell addresses her own cynicism with the Church in her title track Shine on her recent CD with Hear Music/Starbucks. So I’ve done some Internet soul-searching and found these two YouTube pieces about a remarkable Pentecostal preacher who has had the audacity to give up Hell and embrace all “God’s children.”

“God is not a Christian.” Rev. Carlton Pearson

But does She recycle plastic 4’s, 5’s & 6’s?

Will Carlton Pearson ‘Win’?
