I'm back after a week of lying on the couch coughing and feverish. Before being struck down by virus, I photographed artist Dan Goldman for an author photo and press shots for his upcoming book, 08: A GRAPHIC DIARY OF THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL with The New Republic's Michael Crowley. It's a nonfiction comics memoir of the 2008 election to be published by Crown Books in January 2009.
The concept for the photos was to portray Dan in the style of a 1960's reporter, but reporting with an iphone. I took a cue from the recent Mad Men ads and decided to use Grand Central Station as the location.
