I’ve mentioned the periodical in question a few times here, notably its arguably ham-fisted attempts to encapsulate New York City’s punk scene for its self-styled, smarmily urbane readership. In any event, while still an object of ire and derision for many friends of mine, I’ve always liked New York Magazine. As mentioned in that older post, my family always subscribed to it, much as my wife and I do today.
Well imagine then, if you will, my bliss last week when a representative of the mag reached out to ask if they could re-publish a photograph of mine for their “Approval Matrix” in the back of the book. They were interested in the Instagram shot I posted at the top of this entry from May of last year about Sounds on St. Marks. It is a lovely shot, if I do say so myself.
Having always wanted to contribute to New York (although I’d prefer it if they wanted me to write for them), I gamely said ‘sure,’ and lo and behold, my photograph is now on the back page of the current issue (the one with Alec Baldwin on the cover).
On the Matrix itself, it links to a Gothamist article that utilized a Google Maps image. Online, I don’t seem to get a photo credit (bastards), but if you buy the actual issue, you can see one in microphuckingscopic print on the spine. Yay me!
For posterity’s sake, here’s that photo again.
