Stan Kann

I just heard the news that Stan Kann was no longer with us. I had the opportunity to photograph Stan in 2005 for a personal project. I saw a documentary on a public access channel and gave him a call to set something up. He was the most gracious and kind person. He opened up his home to me and let me shoot whatever I'd like while he was speaking to Phillis Diller on the phone and scheduling performances. Of course I wanted to shoot him with his vacuum cleaner collection. Even blowing the fuses in his breaker box. His manager along with Stan and myself with flashlights in hand changed the fuse so we could continue the shoot. I am thankful for Stan's warm welcoming and patience. You will be missed.

One of my favorite blogs about photography featured a few of my images today. The images were out takes from an editorial project about children with autism. Check out The F Blog here.

Open Road

Just got back from a much needed road trip to clear my head
and get ready for a few upcoming projects.I enjoyed the break
yet looking forward to the new possibilities. I was able to
photograph the predictable and the not so obvious
on a few rolls of film. Looking forward to the results.

A few images of Milo from this past weekend.
He was a real trouper yet in the end he had enough.
