Photographed in Brooklyn, NY by David Kimelman in 2011.

    George McCracken is a New York based independent fashion designer. His clothes utilize high end tailoring and elevated fabrics, but his designs speak in a casual minimalist voice, even across a range of garments, from high-end suiting to his new line of japanese-made denim. I personally experienced George’s clothes for the first time last summer […]

    Photographed in Brooklyn, NY by David Kimelman in 2011.

    Rachael Warner is a Brooklyn based painter and a friend of mine from college. I’ve followed her work over the years as she’s developed a really wonderful and unique style of portrait painting. Rendered in hyper real colors and patterns, her paintings highlight and celebrate the individuality and charisma of her chosen subjects. I photographed […]

    Photographed in El Paso, TX by David Kimelman for <i>Latina Magazine</i> in 2011.

    Latina Magazine sent me to El Paso, Texas to photograph a story about the people who cross The Paso del Norte Bridge. The bridge connects the downtown area of Cuidad Juarez in Mexico to downtown El Paso in Texas. Every day up to 30,000 people cross the bridge on foot from Mexico into the US. People cross for a variety of reasons including school, work, shopping, entertainment and family get-togethers.

    Photographed in New York City by David Kimelman in 2011.

    Andrew Yang is well known for his incredible Kouklitas, a series of beautiful and intricate couture dolls. I met Andrew two years ago when I was asked by East Village Boys to photograph him selling his creations at a doll expo in New Jersey and I’ve been following his work ever since. After running into Andrew at a party a few weeks ago, I felt compelled to photograph him again, this time in a more personal way.

    Photographed in Los Angeles, CA by David Kimelman in 2011.

    Frohawk Two Feathers (Umar Rashid) is an artist I met on a recent visit to Los Angeles. His gorgeous, highly detailed, paintings and drawings are provocative reimaginings of colonial history, but they are also, on a very basic level, pictures of awesome dudes, wearing cool outfits, doing badass stuff. On the day I photographed him, […]

    Photographed by David Kimelman for <i>East Village Boys</i> in New York City in 2011.

    I had the pleasure of hanging out with Bridget for a day last week before she performed in her monthly show, Our Hit Parade, at Joe’s Pub. The day included lingerie shopping at Rainbow, a hot bath to relax and memorize song lyrics, rehearsal with her band backstage before the show, and culminated with her killer performance that evening.

    I met Scott Matthew at a party last fall and soon after came to know his gorgeous music. When I heard that he would be performing at the Tompkins Square Library this past week, I asked him if I could photograph him on the day of the show. We began the shoot at his home […]

    Autumn Whitehurst is a Brooklyn based illustrator, and a good friend of mine. Her clients include Glamour Magazine, Lillet, and The Principality Of Monaco.

    From The series, <i>Reality Wanted</i>, photographed by David Kimelman in 2010 / 2011.

    Reality Wanted is a series of portraits of individuals who hope to be cast on a reality television show. I became interested in fame and people who seek fame when I worked for a number of years as an art director at Star Magazine. During that time, I found myself particularly drawn towards those who were looking to become famous through the medium of reality T.V. Though some of the people I photographed for this series have particular skills and talents that warrant our attention, such as singing, cooking, or design, the main commodity being offered by my subjects is simply themselves. Many of the people I photographed just want to have a television show made about their lives.

    From <i>Broad Channel</i>, photographed by David Kimelman in 2009/10, in Queens, NY.

    Broad Channel is my first-time collaboration with filmmaker Sarah J. Christman. Friends since childhood, Sarah and I share a fascination with altered landscapes and an expressive documentary approach. Broad Channel is a multi-channel project exhibiting our year-long exploration of a narrow strip of public shoreline in Jamaica Bay, Queens. My photographs and Sarah’s films and soundscapes closely witness the unceasing waves of visitors, the cycling seasons and tides, and the flight patterns of airplanes and migratory birds surrounding the unusual urban island of Broad Channel.

    Artist, Cammi Climaco, photographed for <i>East Villlage Boys</i> in Brooklyn, in 2011.

    These are the portraits I shot of the artist Cammi Climaco for her interview with East Village Boys. Looking at Cammi’s work, I thought it would be appropriate and fun to do some studio portraits of her that are informed by the customs, and to a certain extent the aesthetics, of american high-school senior-year portraits. My aim was not to make silly ironic fake senior portraits of an artist acting like a teenager, but rather have the senior-portrait qualities function as the construct for a serious portrait shoot of an artist who is obsessed with that period of personal development. I was also really happy to have a good reason to use that purple back drop.

    Paul Bruno asked me to shoot the artist Barnaby Whitfield for his third issue of Dirty Magazine. Since Barnaby is a bit of a style icon around town, we thought it would be fun to give his shoot a fashion treatment rather than shooting straightforward portraits. Stylist and friend, Shandi Alexander helped make that idea a reality.

    From the set \"Karen Azoulay: Carnations Thunder\" photographed at Soho20 Gallery in New York City by David Kimelman in 2010.

    My friend, the artist Karen Azoulay, asked me to document her latest conceptual dinner party titled, Carnation Thunder. The event was held at Soho20 Gallery in Chelsea. Here’s how Karen describes the project:

    “CARNATION THUNDER is a fizzy meditation on fireworks and a smoldering sampler of effervescent sensations. This conceptual dinner party will delight you with a parade of dishes, each an interpretation of how the shimmering explosions in the sky might taste.”
