Southern Decadence in Black and White.

These black and white images are part of a large body of work taken between 1991 and 2001 on the streets of New Orleans. The photos document the annual Labor Day weekend celebration called Southern Decadence during which several hundred thousand gay men and women come to the city to enjoy an outrageously raucous and very public good time.

All the images were photographed using black and white film. They are intentionally rough with noticeable grain and inconsistent exposure. In short, as wild and wooly as the weekend itself.

Sometime in 2013, the photos will be published as a hard cover book.

Boston is a great college town. It has just under 300 colleges serving up a mixed bag of book learning to 250,000 eager students.

I have the pleasure of living in a neighborhood that caters to the needs of this bulbous student population. Surrounded by fast food restaurants, bars and laundromats, my condominium is next to the subway line almost exactly between Boston University and Boston College. With a considerable supply of affordable apartments, it’s the ideal location for parents to dump their kids for four years.

Roughly 150,000 of these kids exit Boston in the spring when school ends and return over the Labor Day weekend. We call it the Festival of the UHauls.

The Head of the Charles Regatta
, also known as HOCR or HOTC, is a rowing race held on the penultimate complete weekend of October each year on the Charles River, which separates Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts. The race is named the “Head” of the Charles because it is a head race. It is the second largest 2-day regatta in the world, with more than 8,900 athletes rowing in around 1,750 boats in 56 events. It attracts about 300,000 spectators throughout Regatta weekend. The Head of the Charles Regatta is run by an office of 3 and approximately 1,500 volunteers. The regatta is hosted by Cambridge Boat Club, a rowing and social club founded in 1909 that lies just before the Eliot bridge, on the Cambridge side of the river.
