The last two months have been incredibly busy. Along with a personal life change, we began a garage conversion to provide me with a dedicated working space. I completed work on a new book, which is going to be released very soon. And as usual, I spent many hours securing interviews and preparing for each conversation to ensure a great episode for The Candid Frame.
What was sacrificed was time for making photographs. I was so busy, that I began forgetting to tote my camera with me.
Gerald Cyrus was born in 1957 in Los Angeles, CA and began photographing there in 1984. In 1990 he moved to New York City and obtained a Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in 1992. While at SVA, he also interned at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture under the supervision of Deborah Willis. During his time in New York, Cyrus photographed regularly on the streets of Manhattan, Harlem and Brooklyn, and in 1994, he started frequenting the nightclubs in Harlem and photographed the vibrant music scene in that historic neighborhood for over six years. The resulting body of work, entitled “Stormy Monday”, was published as a book in 2008.
Some life change has required me to free up the second bedroom in our home and find another place to work. That place is my garage, which is currently being converted from a storage space and into an actual office/studio.

The release of a major new camera brings out all the drama.
Along with the uber-hype of the manufacturer, there are those that parse every specification looking for evidence of the product’s greatness or its obvious failings. Even before the camera has been used under real-world circumstances, everybody is ready to pick their corner. People don’t even wait for the bell to ring before they start throwing punches.
