Back to the Future!

Been scanning all my old work and sometimes I need to remember what century I’m living in…

“Leveling Coney Island” 2010

The wreckers have been having a field day out at Coney Island lately. I dread my next trip out there, as I will find a few empty lots in place of some of Coney’s oldest buildings. I am very skeptical as to whether or not the new Coney Island will still be a place where the working class can come and enjoy themselves. Time will tell…

“The Sun Sets on Coney” 2010

I know I’m slipping back into “Rotten Splintered Wood Photography” but too much “street photography” makes Matt a dull boy…

Brooklyn 2010

Well, if I’ve taken any pictures more picturesque or “postcardesque” lately, I’m unaware of them. This is one of those pictures which we could take back into the film vs. digital debate. I’d say the quality of film is fairly obvious, and you might reply that you could sample my grain and import it into your own image. That would almost be as lame as a rapper who can’t sing or play any instruments, sampling some Led Zeppelin (Who stole plenty of riffs and licks from other bands) and importing it into his song…

Zoo York Again 2010

I was surprised to discover that my Coney Island Hoodies were selling in Russia. I asked him if I could take a snapshot for my archives and he whipped out his I-phone. I-phone photography is becoming very popular and should not be dismissed by anyone. Joel Sternfeld who is one of America’s premier large format photographers, recently published a book of his I-phone photos taken in Dubai. I think I-phones and other cell phone cameras will reach superb quality one day. Will that hurt camera sales? Yes.
