Year in Review - Favorite Photos of 2011 (Part 2)

8:55 PM / Posted by Ashley /

Here's Part 2:

OCTOBER: Project Girl Performance Collective's photo shoot. Project Girls are active 24 hours a day.

OCTOBER: My personal favorite from the Project Girl photo shoot.

OCTOBER: Yet another Project Girl shot. This was a good day. DUMBO is a great place to shoot. We got a ton of interesting photos. The rain had us sort of bummed out but it didn't stop us from having a good time.

SEPTEMBER: Ryan Victor Pierce. Focused. Hardworking. and Talented. I shot this during a rehearsal for Co-Op Theatre East (COTE) and Mixed Phoenix Theatre Group's production of "Muzungu". This night also happened to be a good photo night (some are better than others). I got some great shots of the actors and production crew but my favorite photos all just happened to be of Ryan. Coincidence? Methinks not.

SEPTEMBER: Ryan also has a goofy side. See above.

SEPTEMBER: Robert A. K. Gonyo - my fearless COTE partner in crime. Here he is directing the NY Premiere of "Muzungu" by David Myers.

AUGUST: Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry

AUGUST: Dominique Fishback. Hands down one of the most brilliant writers and spoken word artists I know. She is a Project Girl and proud to be one of the original collective members. Dominique has been with Project Girl since 2008. She is currently a student at Pace University and getting ready to graduate next year. She will be taking the world by storm. I'll always be proud to say "I took her headshots way back when..."

AUGUST: More Dominique. We took these in East New York (Dom's hood).

AUGUST: Is she photogenic or what?

AUGUST: Book this girl for print work right now!

AUGUST: Hurricane Irene comes (and goes). I walked through Harlem trying to get some interesting "hurricane" shots and came up with a more iconic image.

AUGUST: That's my street!

SEPTEMBER: Co-Op Theatre East debuts a performance workshop series at the Looking Glass Theatre free of charge for participants as part of our mission to make theatre training accessible.

AUGUST: Eve of Irene. Two fishermen in Battery Park City attempt to catch fish before the mandatory evacuation of the area due to storm surge.

OCTOBER: "Muzungu" poster art. This was the "money shot" from COTE and MPTG's production of "Muzungu" by David Myers. This was reproduced on hundreds of posters and thousands of postcards.

FEBRUARY: Co-Op Theatre East's production of Trojan Women Redux at Looking Glass Theatre, adapted and directed by Casey Cleverly. This features another brilliant talent, Lillian Rodriguez. Should I mention she is also Project Girl alum?

FEBRUARY: Anna and Hannah (as Hecuba and Cassandra). I seem to think I have another photo of them in a similar hold from another COTE show a year back...

FEBRUARY: Anna and Hannah in Trojan Women Redux. One of my favorite elements of this show was the use of the video projections on the broken brick wall screen (you can see it in the back).
