Full Circle

I have been going to Cape Cod once, twice sometimes three times a year since I was 3 or 4 years old. For most of that time, actually up until this year, we have rented the same set of cottages on the beach in North Truro. Over this amount of time, I have watched a beach, a town and even science change by the ocean. I remember as a kid taking a flattened cardboard box and going to the dunes in P-town and sliding down them as if it was a snowy hill. Dune buggy tours used to go through …

Going Back in Time

This entry was posted on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 at 9:15 am. Back in the day, when Time Out New York just started out, I used to photograph for them a few time a month.

So I got to go around NYC and photograph the chef, their food and then have a great meal for FREE  Some restaurants survived, others didn’t. But I did and I got to meet and photograph some of the great chefs we know …

Over the past 7 years, Jordan has photographed more than 100 women of all shapes and sizes going topless in NYC. Its not just a book of photographs of topless women posing in Time Square, …
