Your Story by Kristen Blush - Red Hook Crit

When Entrepreneur David Trimble started the Red Hook Criterium in 2008, the race was held on the open street in Brooklyn. Now held at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the race has grown into an international celebration of the world’s fittest Men and Women Cyclists. In addition to New York City, the Red Hook Crit is now performed in London, Barcelona, and Milano, annually.

Night Of A Thousand Gowns with The Imperial Court of NY!

Kristen Blush had all photo access for the 29th Annual Night Of A Thousand Gowns, hosted by The Imperial Court of New York!

Above is a selection of photographs I shot at Night of a Thousand Gowns. The event took place in Times Square, at Marriott Marquis, on Saturday, April 11. NOATG is a legendary ball and coronation ceremony, as well as a huge fund raising event. In the Court's twenty-eight year history, they have raised millions of dollars for worthy LGBT and HIV/AIDS-related causes.

It was amazing being a part of the event coverage. All Photos by Kristen Blush.

Adopt Our Friend Chase!

Lingerie designer, Angela Friedman, and I teamed up to photograph how easy it is to wear lingerie as outerwear, in Central Park. However, after one thing led to another, our shoot turned into a mission to get our friend Chase, a forever home. If you are interested in adopting Chase, contact Zen Dog.

Chase, and our model Allie, had a lovely time running around together in the park. It's so wonderful to be included in this special cause. Enjoy Spring, and the possibility of being a forever home to an animal in need.

Honzo Haven Presents Hands On Live : Patti Smith and Jesse Smith

Last Friday, Honzo Haven invited me to photograph Hands On Live, presenting Patti Smith with Lenny Kaye, and Jesse Smith with Tenzin Choegyal.

Click here to donate to their fund raising efforts, and to read more about their philosophy of ancient healing practices.
