Julio Montero for The New York Times

Julio Montero for The New York Times

When I was in college, I got paid to stand outside clubs in the wee hours and hand out flyers. Last spring, I stood outside one to take pictures of security guard/doorman Julio Montero for The New York Times. (This appeared a month and a half ago; it snuck right past me.) Check out the rest of the photos after the jump.

Northside Festival for Brooklyn Magazine

Northside Festival for Brooklyn Magazine

While I didn't devote quite as much time to covering the Northside Festival as I usually do, I was able to get to some fun shows, including Run the Jewels (with an appearance by Nas), Sleigh Bells, Vince Staples, Dutch Capital, Neko Case, Rhye, The Very Best, Heliotropes, Flying Pace, and Fiona Silver. It's cool to see how massive this event has gotten over the years! Check out some favorite moments after the jump.

Needless to say, it's been a lot of fun. More photos after the jump.

Dance practice in Tokyo

Dance practice in Tokyo

I was in Tokyo recently and shot some photos of my buddy Justin Miller and his friend Wuma Ichi (who, I learned, lived not far from me in Brooklyn for a time before moving back to Japan) in their practice space. Video would be better. These dudes can move. More photos after the jump.

Bohio Music at Tonel Restaurant & Lounge

Bohio Music at Tonel Restaurant & Lounge

My buddy Kevin Mason, aka Tall Jamal, brought me to a spot called Tonel in Flatbush, Brooklyn, to hear some excellent Haitian tunes from a group called Bohio Music on Friday. It was one of those unexpected nights where I find myself in a neighborhood I don't spend a lot of time in, hearing a type of music I don't hear a lot of, and I'm reminded of why I live in a city as culturally rich and diverse as this one. More photos after the jump.

Becky Radway Dance Projects' "A Delicate Madness"

What a treat it was to crawl around onstage and photograph the tech rehearsal for Becky Radway Dance Projects' latest piece A Delicate Madness at Triskelion Arts a couple months ago. The creative set design by Elisabeth Svenningsen, moody lighting by Andrew Dickerson, evocative score by Scott Radway, and, of course, expressive performances by dancers Becky Radway, Heather N. Seagraves, and Jessi Patz all contributed to this complex, enthralling performance. More photos after the jump.
