WWD hired me to shoot for an article about the onetime “jewelry capital of the world” as it undergoes a revival. I had no idea the amount of jewelry making still happening in Providence and what was housed inside these old brick buildings. Take a look a the pictures for a view of where Alex and Ani, Tiffany, Shinola, and David Yurman products are manufactured. Click on the link, here, to read the whole article.
I was fortunate to be able to spend the second half of the 2016-2017 season with the Providence College Women’s Hockey program. From the locker room, to the weight room, to the practice ice, and finally during game time, I learned much from them about friendship and camaraderie among teammates. With small crowds and little chance of a pro career, these women are a great example of players working hard for love of the game. The team did an amazing job this year and is poised for even more success next year.
I’m pulling together all of the files for a project later on but here is a first look at some of the images.
On January 12, an impromptu fundraiser was held with only 6 days advance notice. The event sold out, showing the support of the nonviolence mission as well as the performers who volunteered their talents.
Here is the write-up from GoLocalProvidence: This past Saturday at the upstairs stage of The Columbus Theatre on Broadway in the heart of the West End of Providence, a magnificent display of music took place to benefit The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence. Deer Tick’s John McCauley & Ian O’Neil, Vanessa Carlton,Smoota and Caroline Hecht were on a star-studded bill for an experience that was guaranteed to be a memorable one. It’s always great when talented people come together for a worthy cause, and in this day and age this was needed more than ever.
Columbus Collective member and Local 121’s Bryan Minto, Owner of Supply & Demand Records and fellow Columbus Collective member Tom Weyman, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, Congressman David Cicilline, Executive Director of The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence Teny Gross and Moses Brown teacher Sal Montero started off the night by thanking everyone for attending and encouraging people to get involved with the Institute to do what they can to stop violence in American society. A moving and inspiring way to kick off the show that set the mood for what was to be a special concert.
I have been working with the Institute for the past couple of years on a documentary project that showcases their efforts and the benefits received from them. Here are some still images from the night. The cause was noble and the music was powerful. In John McCauley’s own words “It is an honor to be playing for such a wonderful cause. And, it is an honor to share the stage with such wonderful musicians. And, it is an honor to be raised in Providence. So, if we can do a little part in keeping some violence off of the streets that I love so much, hey, that’s a good thing, brothers and sisters.”
