Jen and Greg, dear friends of mine, live in Long Branch, New Jersey, on the Shore. I spent the day with them and their two young daughters, Sarah Jane and Mia.
The book is a record of the day---playing with the kids, strolling on the Boardwalk, ending up at the Pier Village development, the hottest new shopping and dining attraction on the Shore.
By day I am senior editor of New Jersey Monthly. (In a previous life I was editor of special projects at People Magazine for 11 years.) By night and during the cracks in the day, I am a photographer. I have exhibited in numerous group shows and had a solo exhibition at Studio Montclair, Montclair, NJ, in January, 2006. I also do a daily photo blog, Plain Sight, on the homepage of New Jersey Monthly (www.njmonthly.com). Excerpts from my series of bathroom pictures, "I'll Be Right Back": Visits To Mens' Rooms and Bathrooms" can be seen under the Artists section of Gallery 51 (www.gallery51.org.)
