Extended Thursday: Travels to Honduras

leave a comment »

After my breakthrough with “Chicago River Winter (Extended)”, I was excited to keep the extensions concept in the back of my mind as I traveled to Honduras for a client project.  On the inside, Tegu’s factory provided a variety of graphically interesting aspects (you’ll notice that the fluorescent lighting is reminiscent of my much earlier grocery store extension).

And looking out through the loading dock, I was surprised to find dusk transforming a drab parking lot into a beautiful urban landscape.

This parking lot shot translated beautifully into a fine art print and was included in my David Strawn Gallery show.

Honduras trip log: I’m here, but my luggage….

…is HOPEFULLY on its way!  Apparently my two-hour delay in Miami didn’t give American Airlines luggage handlers enough time to get my duffel from one flight to the other.  And since there’s only one AA flight from Miami to Tegucigalpa each day, I’m hoping it’s on its way as I type.  To hold me over, the airline was generous enough to give me these supplies:

More importantly, I’m here safe and sound.  Chris and Cindy are wonderful hosts and I’m excited to dive into documenting the factory workers this morning.

Willy Wonka said it best:  “We have so much time, and so little to do! Strike that. Reverse it.”

First, I’m excited to announce that I’m going to Honduras next week on a photography project with Tegu.  The company was established by two old friends, brothers Chris and Will Haughey, to create beautiful, simple, imagination-provoking toys in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.  I’m thrilled with the project and can’t wait to get started!  Stay tuned for outtakes along the way.

Second, many of you have expressed interest in seeing my current body of fine art photography, “Explorations“.  I’m excited to announce a fun opportunity to see the art work AND support a great cause.  I teamed up with Cabrini Green Legal Aid‘s Young Professional Board to show my work during their upcoming annual Wine Tasting fundraiser event.  The event is Thursday, May 13th, from 6pm to 9pm, at Skylight Studios.  For more information and to buy tickets, go to

And last, a few images from a recent East Coast trip.  Many thanks to Andy and Pam for finally getting hitched and giving us an excuse to head east!
