I haven’t photographed any Japanese musicians in about a year, so it was a pleasant surprise to get a phone call from an old friend about covering the Morning Musume concert in NYC. You’ll most likely find the rest of the photos at RESONANCE Media. Hopefully they’ll spread to other media/news sites from there. I’d forgotten how cohesive and well run a Japanese show was and the fans are always so devoted.
After a dry summer of photographing landscapes and product, I decided I should actually interact with people. I attended the September SNAP mixer for creatives at the Art Factory in NJ. It’s a really great space, a converted mill with thousands of square feet and original architecture. It was great chatting with new faces, seeing old friends, and getting in some photo time with wonderful models.
