This past October, The Merce Cunningham Dance Company organized a memorial for Merce who had passed away this summer. In attendance were many notable figures in the New York scene including Jasper Johns and former Company members, many of whom also performed. It was a celebration of his amazing career and contribution to the world of modern dance and performance.

It was truly a pleasure and a gift to be in attendance and to capture the night for the Company.

Give me a beautiful bride, some window light, and a pocket full of B&W film and I will go to town all day long.

Sion Sono & Eiji Okuda

Posted: July 19th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Cinema, dougKIM photography, New York City

For Giant Robot, I had the great task of shooting director Sion Sono and actor Eiji Okuda, both of whom were in town for the Asian Film Festival here in New York. Sion’s film “Love Exposure” won the Grand Jury Prize. Both men have great style, but Eiji’s face in particular invites some Leone-type landscape / close-ups.

Cheryl & Her Kick Ass, Cheap Ass Glasses

Posted: April 6th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: dougKIM photography, Film, New York City, Nikon

I met Cheryl on the set of a movie when we were both extras. I have only photographed her once before, several years ago in LA, and the camera absolutely loves her. We were both surprised to find out that the other had recently moved to New York. This photo was taken with my Nikon F5, the great 85mm f1.4 lens, and Tri-X. I do not remember where she bought her glasses, but she only paid a few bucks for them.
