Someday I’ll write my life story of coming to America, although I think the right belongs to my mother more than anything. What is happening in the Ukraine is only the tip of iceberg. The scariest part is that nothing has changed in over 3 decades at this point and I fear it never will. I joke about the anti-Semitism I was born into [when people ask me what my nationality is, I go on a long winded story about how I was born in the USSR, it’s now Ukraine, but my birth certificate says Jewish as my nationality…I am neither considered Russian or Ukrainian by the country I was born in] but it’s an even more scary time to be a Jew in Ukraine.
Merocrat, a new site documenting talent on the rise, interviewed me about my career as a photographer. Check it out here.
Thanks to the incredible Jen for helping me code my new website, it’s finally up. I hope you take a moment to check out my portfolio site and follow my new tumblr. It’s currently empty but it will be filling up shortly with exclusive content.

lolol Remy and I were at the same show right across from each other… and missed each other because we were obviously distracted by the clothes. Look at me talking to my bb Marc about what we were witnessing in great confusion. I didn’t even take off my coat. THERE, MY NICE REVIEW OF LIBERTINE. lol.
A few weeks ago DNA (artists + designers) asked me what my New Years resolution was. At first I had no answer, I’m going to be cliche and say that I don’t make them/believe in them, I do as I need to no matter what time of year it is. But something I keep trying to work on [unsuccessfully] is my health. I eat like…well, you see the photos on this blog. Coincidentally enough, when the gals tweeted this, I was eating my final In-n-Out during my time in LA. Oh the irony. Check out the kind things they say and some of their favorite shots from BBV.>
Omg me and Kanye. Like shaking and crying!!!!!
I couldn’t even finish my thoughts last night. I also can’t believe this has so many notes…um yeah, in case you missed it. This photo finally happened.
My good friend Antwan of I think you’re swell just tweeted a photo of me that he took in Spin Magazine from last October. Hilarious.

Whoa whoa whoa, Yahoo’s blog Shine mentioned Blackberry Vision as a top 10 fashion site that they love on Tumblr. So honored and excited! Sup to my boy Jannuzzi mentioned as well. Thank you everyone for the support <3<3 AND YES, MY BLACKBERRY IS OVERWORKED, SOMEONE SEND ME A NEW ONE. xx
also memo to self…stop shooting all the fattie cakes I keep eating, yahoo even noticed. lol
You guys, this video from the Kanye show in BK just came out and I’m in it for a millisecond. This amuses me greatly. The performance is flawless [sans the “swag” breakdown wackness], and you should totally watch my video ho debut. lol
Another incredible shout out from my bb Ji of Luxirare. I hope people that own one of her creations submit theirs to her as well :)
J. Chesky modeling the shoe of my dreams. Miu Miu swoon. (Taken with instagram)
Working overtime today in the camera whore department. They were surprisingly comfortable but the glitter came off every where. Unicorn jizz is cool, but not for a grand.
my shooting outfit for the summer, basically. [yes that’s me]
Barneys blog, brilliantly titled, The Window interviewed me about my window shooting process. I hope everyone takes a moment to check it out.
