Brooklyn Tourism Postcards

I am thrilled to be one of the photographers chosen for the new Brooklyn Tourism Postcard Set. An Honorable Mention was awarded to my photograph of The Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the “Mi Brooklyn” Postcard Competition and will be part of a new postcard set representing the borough of Brooklyn (and rooftop farming) to the world. "Mi Brooklyn" is presented by Brooklyn Tourism, an initiative of Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, in collaboration with United Photo Industries and made possible by the generous support of Willoughby's Camera Emporium.

To learn more about the postcard set and to see all the other photographers and their images in the set click here.

Lohas Magazine / April Issue

Lohas Magazine, a lovely Health and Sustainability Lifestyle Magazine out of China featured photographs I took of both Brooklyn Grange and Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in their April Garden Issue. It's a beautifully produced magazine and I am happy to be part of bringing attention to two of the most special rooftop farms I know.There is an interview with me as well and links to both farms.
