Brad Ingram going hunting on the back of Rick's truck. Rick's house in the background is build on the floor of the old Rockefeller school house.
Outside the little town Richford, upstate New York, lies Michigan Hill - named so by the people who were on their way to Michigan, but decided to settle here. Over the hill runs a dusty road: Rockefeller Road, named so after the man who was born here in 1839: John D Rockefeller - who became the World's richest man.
Perhaps no other person embodies the "American Dream" like John D Rockefeller. A self made billionaire who shaped America and influenced the whole world in his time.
The people who live on the muddy road today, don't dream the same dreams. They most of all want to be left alone and care much more for hunting and cannabis than for founding oil companies and building empires.
This body of work represents a span of six years since my first visit to Rockefeller Road in 2007.
Over the years I have found myself in Las Vegas numerous times on various assignments. I have developed some kind of love-hate relationship to this at the same time horrible and fascinating place.
To me Las Vegas, usually presents an onslaught on all human senses, an overload of all possible impressions at once. I think it was while trying to save my eyes from all the blinking lights and craziness around me, when I looked down to avoid it all, that I discovered that even the floor was no refuge, and that even more visual madness was to be found there.
Since that moment the carpets of Las Vegas have intrigued me, and on every occasion I find myself in Las Vegas I study and photograph them.
The Viennese Opera Ball at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, February 2009. A debutante is bored during the dress rehersal.
The Viennese Opera Ball in New York City is the biggest and most famous of New York's charity balls.
In New York City separate worlds coexist without necesseraily ever meeting. Some are virtually closed to outsiders.
The world of New York's society often meets in the grand ballrooms of the city's most prestigeous hotels, such as The Pierre, The Plaza and The Waldorf Astoria. They meet at big balls to dine, dance and donate money to charity through auctions held at the balls. Parts of the proceeds from tickets, which are in the range of $1000/person, also go to charity.
