Hurricane Sandy has caused massive amounts of destruction and has left so many residences of Rockaway Beach homeless with nowhere to turn. We are so proud to receive emails everyday from people we know asking their friends and coworkers to donate their time and resources to help rebuild the communities that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
We are not through the storm yet. With the harsh winter cold upon us, the victims of Hurricane Sandy need our help more then ever.
In part 1 of the post, I thought I would start with some overall questions about Darren’s history and his personal interpretation of the fashion/beauty industry. In part 2 I will ask him more technical questions, and invite Darren to share with us a “behind-the-scenes” of one his shoots.
One of the great many advantages, of having my photo studio in the Chelsea Arts Building for the past three years, was being surrounded by so many top creative professionals. In addition to the benefits that come from being surrounded by good people, I also became more familiar with the work of one of my studio ‘neighbors,’ fashion photographer, Darren Keith. Darren moved across the hall from my studio in 2010 and over time, as we got to know one another, we became friends and I discovered what a wealth of information Darren is (hence this blog post).

Sean Gilligan lives in Harlem. One day, while walking along his street, he met an old neighbor named Peanut. Peanut began telling Sean about their block and the history held within. Sean learned how Peanut had once been a great dancer and about their neighbor Poncho, a legendary conga player who’d once played for Fidel Castro during his historic visit with Malcolm X. Enthralled by these stories, Sean soaked in as much in as he could. Then, last winter Peanut passed away, and Sean realized how many stories he’d taken with him. At that moment, Sean became committed to gathering and sharing the stories of his fellow Harlem residents.
