‘09 < ‘19. “we span time together as a couple, cos we’re a loving couple, spanning time. these photos are us, in love, spanning time.” 🖤
i met legendary still photographer, stephen vaughan, on my first film job The Dark Knight. i never noticed him, actually, bc he was like an invisible ninja sneaking around the set & capturing amazing shots. 8 years later i arrived on the set of @bladerunnermovie
& was ecstatic to learn that he would be shooting the stills for the film (especially cool considering he shot stills for blade runner in ‘82). like so many oft-overlooked cinema artists & craftspeople, stephen’s work was invaluable to every production. i hope you will seek out his images. mr. vaughan passed away several weeks ago & i like to think that his spirit will live on among film sets, guiding the hands, eyes & lenses of photographers for years to come. 🖤

2018: the darkness & the light.
this year i saw the rise of vulgar, unprincipled, unqualified & hate-filled men thwart their power by misinformation more than ever before. BUT i also saw the rise of legions of people, young & old, who recognize the value, longevity & strength of equality, justice & true values. // this year i saw credibly accused men grab the greatest power, aided & abetted by cowards of old who still cling to the ways in which a woman’s word is of less value than a man’s position.
BUT i also saw bravery from those who inspired an unstoppable wave of people who are swinging mighty wrecking balls against monoliths of accepted abuse. // this year i saw people i love & respect attacked by nazis & the alt-right (empowered by the hateful rhetoric of the current illegitimate“ administration”.)
BUT i saw those same people endure the attacks with the grace & integrity that builds long-lasting fortitude & inspiration among the millions of witnesses who felt devastated by the loss of certain battles but are now seeing the light of victory for the greater, bigger story. // this year i saw the united states humiliated on the national stage by a bumbling, immature, cruel & unpatriotic legion of people currently occupying the white house. BUT i met people the world over - from ireland to germany to mexico - who stand by us as we weather this painful time, supporting & encouraging us. // this year i saw a rise in attacks on people because of where they’re from, what they look like & who they love. BUT i also saw first-hand the power of love between people as we marched, met new friends navigating the nightmare of the family separation crisis & attended the weddings of people who reflect the kind of devotion & unity that will pull us through. (congrats helens, yarvo’s, slater-russells & hogan-longs! & the shriner-davos) // this year i saw attacks on artists & the journalists by those who want to undermine labor & those who report truth.
BUT i also saw great artists & reporters rise to the occasion like never before! // i’ve been able to tell some great stories on tv/film, be w family & friends i adore, i feel optimistic for 2019. Keep praying for 🇺🇸! 💙
