Berlin Mondiale Calendar 2020



What better way to wrap my work with Berlin community arts and network organization Berlin Mondiale than to curate a calendar highlighting some of the past year’s programs and artistic collaborations.

For this project I was able to team up once more with Imad Gebrayel, whose beautiful design work with type in Arabic I had gotten to know during the production of WAS GEHT?! Magazine’s first print publication.

The typography design approach allowed us to create a collection of works that was able to seamlessly incorporate projects that are extremely divergent in style, plus, of course, be able to feature some of the literary workshops active in the network.

Here’s to a fabulous, creative year 2020.

migration, the publication is proud to present
its first print volume.

Here’s the WAS GEHT?! Vol.01 digital copy,

version for full effect by writing to:

New work: Zurich video production

While shooting the Swiss portion of this 2019 Fields Medal Awards honoree video for the Simons Foundation, I got to spend time with math genius Alessio Figalli and learned a thing or two about Queen Dido and old Carthage – while running all over Zurich’s old city and sneaking rides on cable cars.

On Borrowed Time – revisited

In honor of this year’s World AIDS Day, I decided to reach out to some of the former Camp Heartland kids who were featured in the OSF Moving Walls 11 exhibition, or had been profiled in the book that I co-produced for the HIV/AIDS NGO‘s peer prevention outreach. It has been 15 years since I first began photographing and interviewing teens who were facing the continuing stigma surrounding HIV, and all these years later, given our new sharing culture and social media connectivity, it seemed time to follow up.

The series ran over at the Open Society Foundation’s Instagram feed this week, presenting updates on the young people’s lives, as well as their thoughts on growing up, secrecy and disclosure, friendship and loss, and surviving against the odds. To be continued.
