RA was a fellow for "Journeys South", an initiative of the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Project from 2009-2011. His works have been shown by the Merchant’s House Museum in NYC, appeared in The Sun Magazine, New York Magazine, Supplementaire (UK) and F-Stop. He is also a regular contributor to The Laboratory Collective Magazine.
Today, he would like to share his look between film and digital through his latest project, crowd-funded on Kickstarter, is working with another photographer, Mindy Veissid of NYC to produce a body of work that contrasts Friedman’s medium format film shots in black and white against Veissid’s digital color photos.
“Traveling to five randomly chosen U.S. cities, we have been capturing the same subjects, creating pairs of images.”
