The Intercept presented us with a unique opportunity to work up close and personal with Senator Bernie Sanders and renowned author and activist, Naomi Klein this weekend at the Sanders Institute’s The Gathering in Burlington, Vermont. It was very compelling to hear Mr. Sanders and Ms. Klein discuss the affect of climate change on our changing world among other pressing topics. Also had an opportunity to chat with filmmaker Avi Lewis (husband to Ms. Klein). Quite an inspiring group of folks to work with!

We were psyched to produce new video work for Portland, Maine- based company Zootility Tools on a new campaign for their take on the key ring, called Keyround. It’s a really well-crafted, no-fuss key ring. We’re always psyched to take a walk through their shop to check out what’s on tap next- and there’s some really cool stuff.

Our last day of the first leg of the Hujar project it snowed- seemingly for the first time in a long time. Luckily we spent our Saturday inside the Hide/Seek exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum checking out some of Peter’s work as well those by other luminaries such as Nan Goldin and Robert Mapplethorpe. Jonathan Katz gave us a critical eye on Peter’s work and he and Stephen took a stroll around the galleries, examining Hujar’s famous Susan Sontag photograph amongst others.
We braved the cold and enjoyed a day at Matthew Marks Gallery with a few interesting subjects including Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons. Antony used Hujar’s photo of Candy Darling on her Deathbed for his album cover. If you haven’t heard his music, his voice is amazing. Check out a video. Antony plays Radio City 1/26.
A day trip to Long Island to visit with master printer (and photographer), Gary Schneider. A real treat to get to see Gary’s giant camera and some of his long-exposure nudes in person. Hearing the intricacies of the photo craft was truly amazing for the whole crew. Plus, Gary had some very interesting bits about Hujar, for whom he printed.
Down in Chelsea at the PPOW Gallery we took in some extraordinary, psychedelic paintings by Thomas Woodruff– which had nothing to do with Hujar but was interesting all the same. We also chatted about close friend and disciple, David Wojnarowicz. PPOW has a number of David’s works- definitely check it out.
