When I ventured off to Roslindale, one of Boston's many neighborhoods, for a project I was recently worked on for AirBNB.com, I went out with no expectations. The research I did prior to the shoot was minimal... I figured that I'd find some spots along the way to take pictures of, but never did I imagine to find a thriving town, one filled with food, arts, and parks. I loved the murals that lined the town's walls and was struck by the number of restaurants, bakeries, and gourmet food shops. The farmer's market I came across was an added bonus. And I can't forget to mention the Arnold Arboretum, a beautiful reservation that's part of Boston's Emerald Necklace.
About a year ago, Tzurit, the owner of Tatte Bakery in Brookline, popped up on my Twitter feed and we started chatting. Our lengthy conversation soon turned to the topic of photography and she expressed interest in having me come in to photograph the opening of her upcoming shop in Cambridge. Jump five months and the second Tatte Bakery opened to much acclaim. I was there for the opening to get some shots, which I'm sharing with all of you today.

Over the past few months, I've been sent to the South End for a variety of projects. My job for these shoots was to go out and capture the essence of the South End... and seeing how much culture the area encapsulates, it wasn't hard to find subjects to photograph.
