This year’s Exposed DC Crystal City Fotowalk Underground Exhibition features 13 local photographers, including me. I contributed a 12 photograph series focusing on isolation and self identity. Modernism as a movement interested me because of its take on the isolated individual in the industrial world. My favorite modernist was Franz Kafka, with his characters often alienated and trapped alone in […]

Statistics show Flickr is experiencing a downward spiral in traffic. Given Yahoo! has put the network up for sale, Flickr may be beyond saving at this point.

Feel better now that Instagram restored some of its original terms of service, and recommitted to observing permission marketing norms with photos? It seems like every four or five months we experience some outrageous Internet drama where tech and marketing bloggers declare the death of a brand. Instagram, Chick-fil-a, Netflix, […]

I love social photography. Yes, it’s arguably the social web trend of 2012. But beyond the punditry, I just love taking, sharing and discussing pictures.

All in all, the photos were taken over a […]
