Amid all the publicity stuff I've been shooting, it's nice to get a few of my B&W shots from around New York into print in the latest issue of Habitus magazine, a journal of Jewish diaspora culture. Each issue is focused on one city, and the current issue is about New York, but all the writing is by immigrants from other countries.
My book Midstream: The Chicago River, 1999-2010 has just been released. It was published by Columbia College Chicago Press and is being distributed by the University of Chicago Press.

my first self made book is now out...
Thanks for this opportunity, this sticky was a great idea!
My novel The Zorki Chronicles, about a young photographer, is coming out in September 2012. The first two chapters are available to preview on the book's website, http://zorkichronicles.com/ (Please visit the website and if it looks interesting please re-post the URL on Facebook and share with anyone you think might be interested)
AG: The International Journal of Photographic Art and Practice ran a feature article I wrote about Larry Fink in 2010 called Full Circle Apollo: Larry Fink Goes Digital at the Met. If you are familiar with Larry's book Night at the Met, my article is the "making of" story of that shoot. The article is a chapter in a book-length bio of Fink I'm currently working on, called Larry Fink: The Intuitive Eye.
Crash Burn Love: Demolition Derby (Back Street Books 2005), a monograph of 80 black and white photos and two essays, is still in print and available on Amazon and a lot of other places online.
PBS Point of View published excerpts of my Crash Burn Love essays on their website, under the title The Family That Demos Together.
BBC Top Gear also published a 16 picture excerpt from the book and called it 'Goin' For Broke.' I don't think that's available online.
Other stuff about CBL was featured in the UK in a magazine called CLASSIC AMERICAN and there was a feature article about it in the Daily Telegraph.
Picturing the Modern Amazon (Rizzoli, 2001) includes some bodybuilding photographs I did on my 6 year project, The New Body Electric.
"Bodybuilding Lowenburg Style" is a chapter about my bodybuilding photography (I'm NOT a bodybuilder) in Leslie Heywood's book Bodymakers (Rutgers University Press 1998)
I was also a researcher on the authorized biography of Norman Mailer by Michael Lennon, to be published in 2013 (possibly 2014) by Simon and Schuster.
In addition to writing about photography I also write about boxing and profile other writers, as in my article "Hooking Off the Jab: Norman Mailer, Ernest Hemingway, and Boxing." (Mailer Review 2010)
Boxing photographs I took in Rahway State Penitentiary were published in ARENA (UK).
P.S. ALL THIS STUFF WAS SHOT ON FILM.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you're interested in any of these topics!
Thanks again for the opportunity to share.

I am happy to report that my images of The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gaurge Railroad are featured in the current issue of LensWork Magazine. It has been a fascinating project to work on, and also very challenging. I hope my friends at APUG enjoy the images!
BTW, the Durango train is wonderful and I hope some of you get a chance to ride the train someday.

Enjoyed the preview of Zorki Chronicles, looking forward to release. And I'll try to pick up a copy of LensWork.
It's not much... But I am going to have one picture published soon...
I have a hunch the shot is a group shot under the bridge where Holy Jim Creek crosses under Trabuco Canyon Road from the trip September 13-14 1980, taken on 35mm Panatomic-X. If it's the shot I think it is you will see me without beard and glasses, and Dr. Demento sporting a rangefinder.
Just been published in Sawasdee (May 2013 ) - the Thai Airways inflight magazine. We were asked to shoot 4 selected boutique hotels here in BKK, to accompany the feature - there are even more hotels here than I thought!!
I am glad to announce my new street work published in the Leica Blog.
It comes at a the same time with my introduction of my new Book "Los Angeles, Mon Amour" that can be purchased in open edition through BLURB or in signed Limited edition with a signed, original 8 x 10 Silver Print only through me.
It seems only yesterday (Four years ago) when I decided to switch from large format and decided to use almost exclusively 35mm and walk the streets of Los Angeles. It hasn't been easy, but the street photography approach has an appeal that it's unique to photography in the term of how you feel when you are actually shooting, that no other photographic direction has.
Have fun shooting out there!
I just had two photos published in Metalsmith magazine, which I have clipped on my blog. They're photos of an installation art piece by a friend of mine whose work was curated into a show at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution last year as part of "Craft Futures: 40 under 40".
Here is a link to a new online book on my website: Everything Belongs Here
