Macbeth Poster Photoshoot

Some of my favorite shoots during the year are the Gamm Theatre poster photoshoots. It is fun to work such a talented crew including art director, production manager, costume artist and of course the actors. Last month we made the poster photo in the studio. Macbeth will open March 6th.

Cottages in Truro, MA

Shacks2_grabA few days in Truro and it is easy to become obsessed with all the small summer shacks or “cottages”. There seem to be thousands of them, some tucked away in woods others right along the main roads and many right on the beach. Small is beautiful and even boarded up many of these cottages sit up proud of their simple architecture.

Days Cottages a perhaps the most famous. 23 identical monopoly like houses line a strip of sand along route 6a. I remember first seeing them as a kid from the back seat of our family Chevrolet which would be loaded with 4 or 5 bicycles hanging over the trunk as we drove to explore the bike pathes in Provincetown.

Providence Underground part 2

The month of December started with a trip into the newest Narragansett Bay Commission CSO tunnel being made under Providence. Part of the Phase 2 construction. A few years ago I was documenting  Phase 1:  a 3 mile long 30′ wide tunnel under downtown Providence that took 7 years to build.

It has been called the biggest construction project in the city that no sees. “Rome was not built in a day” comes to mind.

The Phase 2 construction is a series of smaller tunnels being built to feed the larger main tunnel. One of the new sections follows the Woonasquatucket River through Olneyville and the Valley Street section of Providence.  We are in a steel cage being dropped 205ft . Once inside we walk about a 1/4 mile in the tunnel through solid rock. Water is constantly dripping from overhead. It is seeping out of the rock. In many places it literally flows out of the rock.
