David Slater and the Monkey “Selfie”

David Slater is currently embroiled in an argument with Wikimedia over the now famous ‘monkey selfie’ images.

Like other conservation photographers at the iLCP, I support David Slater’s copyright to the now famous ‘selfies’ of the critically endangered crested black macaque.

Read the iLCP press release and learn more about David Slater & help support Sulawesi Crested Macaque Conservation.

New Human Canvas Shoot

©Gavriel Jecan

I was very excited to get back in the studio for the first time in two years to continue my exploration of the Human Canvas project–this time with a Leica. It germinated in my mind over 20 years ago and I’m not nearly through with it yet. Abraham Joffe and his crew were in from Australia to film the day’s work as well,which was long, tiring and wonderful.
