Magdalena Baczewska Poster

Magdalena Baczewska poster. I photographed piano virtuoso Magdalena Baczewska for a poster for Columbia's Italian Academy, and leaves in Inwood Hill Park two days later. The idea to combine the two came while listening to Magdalena's performance of Bach's Goldberg Variations on harpsichord.

If you are in New York City on 18 November 2015 don’t miss her free concert at the Italian Academy.

Beto, London, UK?, 1982?

Feliz aniversario mano! Você é uma inspiração pra mim! Te amo!

Sunny Slope Avenue, Oakland, California, April 2007

Getting my first Leica was an unlucky experience (Marks on brand new M8 normal?). I fell in love with the feel of the camera however, and now have a new M8 along with a Leitz 50mm lens from the late 50s–60s in great condition acquired from International Camera in downtown Oakland. I went cycling around town to test the lens, and am happy to publish my first picture made with a rangefinder!
