I shoot a monthly photo story for a website called Nona Brooklyn. The site is a resource for Brooklynites looking to discover local, artisanal, sustainably-produced and just plain good food in Brooklyn. My previous story for April was about Urban farms and gardens, which you can see here.


  1. How did the vendors feel about being photographed? I love that you captioned the photos and wonder if the people in them have seen this blog... I love the variety and theme.

  2. All the vendors loved being photographed and were all notified about the final photographs and article.
