Of course my favorite device, like many folks these days, is my IPhone. I have now done 3 short movies with the 8mm app and do I love it.
If you wanna have a peek at my first one, head over to YouTube: Searching for the muse.
Of course, I am also a hipstamatic fiend. I have samples of that work on my main website, brycelankard.com, and also on my photo blog, parallax pix.
If you have some time to kill, pay me a visit.
I will insert obligatory artwork here:
One of my favorite examples of editorial design. This special Jazzfest issue of Tribe Magazine featured excerpts from the autobiography of Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown. I was also the photographer for this story. The logo treatment for Tribe changed with each issue and this one won the Art Director and Design Association award that year for best Magazine Cover.
This book/show catalog was originally produced as a companion piece to the benefit exhibition for photographers effected by Hurricane Katrina. The exhibit was held at Solomon Arts in NYC and the book was designed as a piece for those who wanted to contribute to the cause but not at the price tag of an original photograph.
I used a lot of quotes from books and song lyrics to accompany the photos and enjoyed playing with a jazzy type treatment.
Sadly the company that printed the book went out of business, but an expanded edition in paperback can be purchased at
Two illustrations created for the Village Voice for an article about the fear created by things like the recent Anthrax scare.
I was hired to do an illustration for the Village Voice for an article about chess that referenced the famous image of Duchamp playing chess in a gallery with his nude mistress. Despite the obvious obstacles, I really loved our location and I thought that our male model was more Duchampian than the artist himself.
After winning Alpha Awards for my fashion photography, I was invited by the Fashion Group International to design the entire campaign for the next year’s event. This included a large number of mailers, a call for entries, and a poster/program for the award ceremony.
We decided against using any particular designers and stylists work in favor of images that more abstractly represented the ideas of everything in awards categories, from hair styling to clothing design to makeup and beyond.
