I’d like to share a very positive, humbling and invigorating experience.
After receiving a generous grant from the Danish journalism association, I managed to take time out and travel to the UK so I could finally experience and document my work in two historical museums exhibitions.
The first show is titled ‘Selling Dreams -100 years of fashion photography’ and it is curated and organized by the V&A museum in London, last shown at Aberdeen Art Gallery. The second show i will explore in a later post.The V&A is similar to the Met in NY, in scope, size and art historical relevance. The photographs exhibited are comprised of 53 photographs carefully selected from the museums permanent collection, that they find best represent the last 100 years of fashion photography. Besides being in company with fellow photographers that I have been inspired by and consider masters of photography, I am impressed by the way the art work is treated an presented. It is held in very high regard and allot of thought and care is put into the process. The museum halls are grand and beautiful and the ambience is filled with creativity and positive vibes.
The exhibition has by popular demand been touring museums in the UK for two years and is now crossing continents to Australia and New Zealand, before returning to London next year. I am happy to be in mix and able to inject a little ‘flava’ into this context and hopefully spark some curiosity to experience and seek out more ‘flava’ for those who arent surrounded by it on a daily.
Amongst other photographers in the show are Irving Penn, Baron Adolf De Meyer, Cecil Beaton, Edward Steichen, Baron Hoyningen Heune, Horst P Horst, Ilse Bing, Herbert List, Erwin Blumenfeld, Norman Parkingson, William Klein, Jean Loup Sieff, Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, Arthor Elgort, Bruce Weber, Corinne Day, Jurgen Teller, Steven Meisel, Steven Klein and Glen Luchford.
My image featured is from my style and fashion documentary shoot in 1994 on Canal Street. The model is real life beauty supermodel Yalitza, from the Bronx. SHe is wearing a mix of Canal Street bargain deals, Nike and Comme des Garcons, accessories with nameplate jewelry from Canal Street.
The shoot is styled by Bernadette Van Huy of Bernadette Corp, Make up by SHade and Hair by Chuck Amos. The shoot was published in i-D magazine.
Big uPs go out to the V&A curatorial team and Susanna Brown as well as Jason Williams at The Aberdeen Art Gallery.

So far Marrakech has been a complete cultural immersion for all of my senses. My host David Bloch and Alexandra have shown me Medina in ways many have never seen, its the inside scoop. Its a beautiful country as you can see from the images.
Ive been deep in the hood, in the gut of a Tannery where goats were skinned to coolin out drinking at Churchills Bar at the most luxurious hotel Ive ever seen- La Mamounia http://www.mamounia.com/uk/index.php
The food, people and vibe is good, the streets can be 5x more chaotic than NYC but it flows in ways NY doesn’t.

Nothing less than VIMS! Swedens most notorious crew of all times is here participate in our VERSUS Project. As we might have expected, the format for this round is metal: A Stockholm commuter train. The spirit of ‘Vandals In Motion‘ stays alive, and just as sparkling is ‘Rojo Akari‘ (‘Akari Red’), which is the color of choice of one the members of this historic crew. Most defenitely… ‘Vandals Emotion’.

Arrive in Marrakech Morocco yesterday to prepare for the exhibition UNFOLDING with fellow Agents Of Change -Derm, Jaybo Monk, Remi Rough, LX One, Steve More, and Timid at David Bloch Gallery. So far its been a deep cultural immersion right off the plane. Its an amazing country one that heightens your senses and pulls you back in time. Visually its stunning and textured, weathered by time but beautifully finished by artisans hands. There is a strong arts and crafts culture here, it is tradition, a way of life.

Dirty Old New York Subway from Jonathan Hertzberg on Vimeo.
A mix of clips of the New York City subway system on film, mostly from the ‘70s and early ‘80s, when graffiti was a mainstay on train cars and everything underground was, for the most part, grittier and more worn than it is today. I will almost certainly be tweaking and adding more footage to this piece.
