The self-publishing process for Work in Rochester has been challenging, but it beats not publishing at all.
This week I made it up on Amazon.
This project is complete. Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible.
I will be announcing the book release date, as well as a major exhibition in the next few weeks.
Please feel free to start back at the beginning to see the entire year:
ROCHESTER,NY- A photographer: I finish the year better than I started. Wiser for the things I have done and more humble for the people I have met. There is no job I would rather have and no city in which I would rather have spent 2011.
ROCHESTER,NY- Marco and Mark are restauranteurs with a new place on that part of South Ave downtown where it dead-ends at 490. Mark is optimistic about 2012.
ROCHESTER,NY- Phil is the valet. On a slow night like this, there isn’t much to do but stand by the bar and wait for a car to drive up.
ROCHESTER,NY- Bob runs the bait shop in Charlotte. He says he is in a dying industry where the state issues 10% fewer fishing permits every year and New York’s shoreline continues to be converted to condos. He’s done better than most he says, though. Many morning there is a line outside the shop at 5:30 in the morning.
ROCHESTER,NY- Thurman dresses in a pig suit and hold a BBQ sign on Culver. He says it is a job. His job.
ROCHESTER,NY- YaYa says he is a bit tired as he keeps the store on Emerson running Christmas morning.
