I have some great news to share. I was contacted by Overlook Press a few months back regarding commercial usage of one of my photos from this past winter for the cover of an upcoming book by David Zeltserman. Of course I agreed! The book is called A Killer's Essence and it will be released on October 13, 2011.

The photo was taken last January on a night with windchill values below zero degrees fahrenheit and temperatures that were rather unforgiving. I love walking around at night in winter all bundled up but this particular night was almost unbearable. I can almost feel the frigid wind on my face when I look at this photo. New York City in the midst of winter is not the friendliest of places but it does possess a certain stark beauty during the colder months that is unique.
