The Fuller building on east 57th Street is very beautiful. Even the elevators are amazing. Here I’m photographing my kid after seeing the Peter Sekaer exhibit at Howard Greenberg’s gallery. Sekaer was a good friend of Walker Evans and traveled with Evans down south as Walker made many of his signature images. Meanwhile Sekaer was busy taking  pictures which at times were virtually identical, and at other times completely different than Evans. The monograph on Sekaer was very overdue and is a good book to say the least. I usually lament the books that come out a few years after a photographer dies, but in this case it’s fucking ridiculous…Peter Sekaer died in 1950 and his monograph was published in 2010!

Better late than never…

  1. Matt,
    this to me is the perfect photograph (if there is such a thing), you totally captured the moment and something tells me this girl of yours is going to model someday.

  2. Nathan, Again you’re too kind! I actually would prefer if she became an actress. She’s pretty emotional and if she could learn to harness that part of her and call it up on demand, then she’d have potential…She’s been predicted to top out at 5′ 2″ and unless things change, that’s a wee bit small for modeling which is a vacuous profession anyway…
