A Dog Catcher with a Big Heart!

on
I recently photographed Bridgeport animal control officer Jimmy Gonzalez for an upcoming story on pit bulls.

Sculptural decay

  I photographed a long abandoned factory in Milford for a series that we’re running on vacant properties. When I first saw the metal ceiling pieces hanging in this hallway I thought they looked like a gueriilla art installation. [Read More]

Blood Sport

Sound Tiger Trevor Gillies was involved in two nasty fights in the first two periods of their AHL matchup with Binghampton in Bridgeport on Sunday, January 15, 2012. You don’t usually see blood like this, though. [Read More]

Cornish Cat

on
My colleague Brittany Lyte is reflected in the storm door as we interview Stratford condo residents about new EPA groundwater testing. What could have been a dull assignment became visually interesting when this resident answered the door with a cat on her shoulder! [Read More]
