Aruban Suns 1-6
Various Locations, Aruba

Sunrises over the desert-like landscapes of Aruba, 800 miles north of the equator, feature a combination of candle and stovepipe cacti. I never expected to discover unique landscapes reminiscent of the American West on a Caribbean island.

Fireflies Over the Fern Forest | 06.12.2024


Fireflies Over the Fern Forest
Grafton, New York

Fireflies hold various meanings throughout the world.

The Japanese considered fireflies to be the souls of warriors. In the story of "The Tale of the Heike," fireflies represent the spirits of the Heike warriors defeated in battle.

Various Native American tribes have different stories about fireflies. For instance, the Cherokee believe fireflies are the result of a trick played by a trickster figure, while the Anishinaabe see them as reminders to be humble and kind.

In Chinese culture, fireflies are often associated with love and romance. Their appearance in the summer nights is believed to symbolize fleeting moments of beauty and love.

In European traditions, fireflies have been seen as omens. For instance, in some cultures, a firefly entering a house foretells an upcoming death or misfortune, while others see them as symbols of protection and guidance.

As a photographer, they transform the forest at night into an otherworldly landscape. If you haven’t experienced a summer forest at night as fireflies wander through the trees, I highly recommend it.

Gardner Earl Memorial Chapel | Oakwood Cemetery






















Gardner Earl Memorial Chapel | Oakwood Cemetery 

As a photographer, access to unique and beautiful spaces is everything, especially if they hold historical significance. This evening, I had the privilege of being granted access to the Gardner Earl Crematorium in Oakwood Cemetery. The shoot was planned to capture the ethereal play of sunlight through the stained glass, particularly in the room known as The Gorgeous Room, where colored light dances on the walls in the afternoon. The intricate handiwork adorning every detail of the sandstone, mosaic, and marble did not fail to impress.

The Gardner Earl Memorial Chapel is a prime example of Romanesque architecture and serves as a centerpiece in Oakwood Cemetery. Built in 1890, it reflects the wealth and grandeur of Troy during the Industrial Revolution and Gilded Age. Named after Gardner Earl, a member of a prominent Troy family, the decision to include a crematorium was groundbreaking for the time, inspired by Earl's exposure to the practice in Europe.

Designed by Albany architect Albert Fuller, the chapel features pink-tinted Westerly granite on the exterior and elegant interior elements like Tiffany stained-glass windows and quarter-sawn oak furnishings. The reception room is equally impressive with its stained glass windows, marble walls, and onyx columns.
