Tokyo Snow

Not too often we get snow in central Tokyo, so I try to get out there in it with my camera if I can!

“A Tale of Two Matts”

I’ve been working several simultaneous stories for my “Extradordinary Everyday New Yorkers” project on the new journalisitc platform Beacon Reader… and here’s the newest one…

www.beaconreader.com/sion-fullana/a-tale-of-two-matts

“A TALE OF TWO MATTS”,

Matt KESSLER is a Cincinnati-born, NY-adopted visual artist and proud geek trying to overcome his self-doubt and craving the acceptance of his persona and his work. Matt KNIFE is a timeless, edgy and unapologetically flirty boylesque host and performer who seduces audiences every month on stage at the legendary gay bar Stonewall. The meeting of the two Matts helped shaped the path for an extraordinary New York artistic story.

If you want to see my photoessay on Matt and read about the craft of taking the clothes off for art, overcoming fear thanks to our alter egos, and wishing for a NY that would respect its artists and bring back patronage for them…

Please consider subscribing to Beacon for the price of a latte monthly to enjoy some great journalism (besides my project, you’ll find more than 100 writers all over the world and get full access to their stories).

“Strangers No More” project: “ELLEN”

It’s been a while, but I’m happy to be able to continue this project, about subjects that appeared in some candid shots of my street photography finding themselves or being directed to my image, allowing me to gift them a print of said photograph, meet them in person and take their portrait and learn a bit about them. From strangers to Strangers No More…

A few months ago, I attended the launch party of the fashion collection of Clash by Dash in a club in the MeatPacking District. I had collaborated with the designer in several photo shoots and it was a fun night, with models, performances, and a festive mood. I walked around the room taking photographs of people unnoticed, and I posted a few of my favorites here on my account. A day later, the make up stylist who was working on the model found herself in my picture. And with it, please meet the lovely Ellen Geenty, a hair stylist and make up artist, born in upstate NY but raised in North Carolina, where she currently lives, in Raleigh.

I meet with Ellen for coffee while she is visiting NYC again to attend a class, and we talk dreams, career journeys and daring to be adventurous and see where the path can lead you in life. She tells me of the time she sold everything she had and took off to Puerto Rico for a change of air, and how she eventually had to return to NC and start again. I learn that some good friends of Ellen’s are pushing for her to take the leap and move to New York. Considering she would love to be able one day to bring her skills with hair and make up to film or TV work, perhaps it’s an offer she should take… Should we convince her?
