Made in Brooklyn with Jomart

Michael from Jomart

I am working on a new project. A book about Brooklyn Food and Drink makers. I have been working on it now for a few months and it has been such a great adventure.  The book will be coming out next Fall and will be published by Power House Books.  I am working with two writers, Melissa Vaughan and Susanne Konig.  Getting to know these ladies has also been super fun. I will start posting some of the out takes here and writing a little behind the scenes diary so I can remember  this ride.

We have visited just over 60 makers already so I better get a move on.  This image above is Michael, he owns Jomart. They make chocolates and other candy treats. When we were there he was making brittle with coffee and coco nibs. Not together but two different brittles and they were both to die for.  This job has not been great for my diet but great for the taste buds. In this photo of Michael he is leaning on his grandfathers mixer. Wait. It may have been his fathers mixer. When I am taking the pics I am not always listening so carefully so I may make stuff up sometimes. I am not however missing the details of how awesome Michael is and his brittle!

Show info below but you should go now to their site and secure your tickets. the show runs until November 2nd. You might want to see it twice.

THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE:   Conceived and directed by Daniel Aukin (Bad Jews, 4000 Miles), based on the acclaimed novel by Jonathan Lethem, the soaring new musical The Fortress of Solitude makes its World Premiere at The Public this fall with a dynamite creative team including composer/lyricist Michael Friedman (Love’s Labour’s LostBloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) and bookwriter Itamar Moses (“Boardwalk Empire,” The Four of Us). The Fortress of Solitude is the extraordinary coming-of-age story about 1970s Brooklyn and beyond — of black and white, soul and rap, block parties and blackouts, friendship and betrayal, comic books and 45s. And the story of what would happen if two teenagers obsessed with superheroes believed that maybe, just maybe, they could fly…  Starring Adam Chanler-Berat, Kevin Mambo, Kyle Beltrand and Andre DeShields. 

Black & White Portraits in the Glass House

Lucien Zayan

Errolyn Daley

Tad Hills


It's a bit funny to me because I took this photo of Lucien first. I said to both of us at the time. Hold on, the light is too contrasty, it's not flattering. Let's wait for the clouds to cover over and we'll have open shade. Well, dang it! I love this one now.  The other three of Errolyn, Tad and Ryan are nice but captured with open shade.  What a totally different feeling.  I have some others of Lucien that are more flattering of him but for now, I like this one which shows a bit more character.

 I took the photos because I wanted to capture something very different from what I have up now in The Glass House.

By the way this coming weekend April 11th and 12th are the last days of my show. I will be at the gallery Friday and Saturday from 1pm to 7pm so if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, stop by and say hi.

More Mayron King

Trying to switch over to using Tumblr. Don't want to have to post twice though! I need to put a map together of all the social media up keep I need to do. The press for the show has been awesome and the articles have been linking here so for now Im into the double time. I love it and I love these shots of the Mayron Kings. 

AT HOME a photographic exhibition

The Invisible Dog, March 8 to April 12, 2014

Please join us for an
Opening Reception Saturday, March 8th, 6 to 10PM 
AT Home will open The Invisible Dog's spring season.  Installed in The Glass House, At Home is comprised of a series of images from 2011 by the Brooklyn-based photographer Heather Weston.  The project began as an exploration of how Weston's friends and neighbors inhabited their spaces - wether grand or small - and was born of her own experience with the challenges of living within 450 square feet.  It evolved into a unique document of the way we live now, capturing the diversity of the modern definition of family, and showcasing many different interpretations of personal style.

The Invisible Dog is located at 51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn NY 11201. They are open Thursday to Saturday 1PM to 7PM and Sunday 1PM to 5PM. Tel. 347-560-3641
