It has been about two months since the last time I have blogged. It's certainly not because I didn't want to. I finished my X semester of school in April which involved spending a very large amount of time on my final project, GOLD IS THE NEW BLACK, which can be seen as a gallery on my site (which you are already on if you are reading this). It took a lot of focus and a great team to make it all come together. That is not necessarily what this post is about.
I was offered an internship with Annie Leibovitz in New York City. Everyday is filled with excitement and LOTS of hard work. Of course I'm still making time to produce my own work as well. I'm working in the West Village/Chelsea and living in Bushwick Brooklyn. The people living in this neighborhood have style like I cannot explain with words. That is why I will do so with pictures. Stay tuned.
I met so many incredible people up on the roof that day. People say New Yorkers are stand-offish or rude. I couldn't disagree more. This has been the most welcoming city I've ever lived in.
Well, as I mentioned before, you can pack a lot of people on our roof, probably more than it can hold. I think we were approaching max capacity until the lovely NYPD showed up. They actually were incredibly professional and friendly, treating each and every person with respect. I have a great appreciation for the way the situation was handled! And the party was almost over anyway.
So this is how my first few weeks have been in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, I'm not at liberty to discuss much of what goes on at the internship with Annie Leibovitz. There will be plenty of great stories to share some day, but for now I will stick to sharing my own.
