1. Fire, a portrait

    Sometimes you just don’t quite know who you are making a picture of. When I asked Keisher, who also goes by the name “Fire,” if she minded whether I made a portrait of her I knew she was a boxer. I was down in DUMBO at world famous Gleasons Gym after all. What I didn’t know was her whole backstory, which you can find out here, or the fact she is the current WIBA Flyweight World Title holder. I ended up making two portraits, one of which I had a little fun with. You can see both in the gallery above. Fire is a charismatic young lady, and I hope I managed to convey that in the images. Thank you Keisher for these wonderful gifts.

  8. Heat Map

    A student explains a genetic “heat map”


    A summer undergraduate research student explains a genetic “heat map,” a representation of genes in which those that are more active or more abundant are denoted by red, and those switched off or rare are denoted by the blue color - relative to the more neutral yellow color.

    This is an out-take from a feature story I assisted on while still at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. You can see that story, about an extremely talented and motivated student, in the latest issue of Harbor Transcript, the biannual CSHL magazine, here.
