One of the coolest things I’ve done this year has been documenting the artists of the League. A lot of my photography from this activity has been feautured in the new Art Students League of New York 2014-2015 Catalog. It makes me happy to see my photography in print!

Epic moment of celebration when I saw my figure done by sculptor Matt White gracing the entrance of The Art Students League of New York, also known as The Heart of The Art World. Thank you Matt for making this a dream come true. To check out more of Matt’s sculptures check out his website at www.mattwhitesculptures.com
