For over a year now, I have been documenting the Lower East Side’s “East River Park”. I have helped organize 2 coastal clean-ups in a beautification project that derived from my photo series. We are now calling for more action and need your votes! Please click on the image above for more details and to Vote! Thank you!
After 2 years of documenting the accumulation of waterborne debris in the East River Park, the city has finally organized a coastal cleanup. If anyone is interested in volunteering this Friday, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The project can be seen here.

Assignment: The Landscape Revisted
Assigner: Alan Gastelum
Description: I have recently taken a trip with friends to Woodstock and decided to bring my 4x5. I woke up one morning at 5am, loading my film holders, grabbed my tripod, meter and camera; and went out to make a few photographs of the morning landscape.
While sitting in the woods, waiting for the sun to come up a bit further, it all caught up with me, how long it has been since I last sat with a landscape alone and really just took time to appreciate it. I also realized how special the film process is and how it really slows you down, again, to appreciate the act of making a photograph.
The assignment for this month is to revisit the landscape alone and photograph it using a film camera.
