Brighton Beach Portrait

This is a photo of my friend Karsten Sawade, taken around seven or eight years ago in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.

Originally shot on a Lomo Lubitel, I in turn photographed the contact sheet with a Nikon D90 using the 18-105 kit lens. Pretty lo-fi.

The photo was originally developed by Sabine Scheckel after the three of us went on a photo safari to Coney Island after a snowstorm. This was my favorite shot from the whole day, at least out of the photos taken by me.

About Jordan

Jordan Matthew Yerman started writing during his third year of high school, where his teacher discouraged his use of the eff-word as "crude, unnecessary and uncouth". While attending UC San Diego for his degree in Political Science, Jordan picked up acting; he would later attend the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, living in the UK for four years before relocating to New York City. To get by, he has worked as a proofreader, model, technical consultant, HR trainer, sign-placer, sales director, crate stacker, bartender, photographer, real estate broker, and as an exhibit at the Bronx Museum. As an actor, Jordan has performed in the USA, England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, and Netherlands, from stage to indie screen to voiceover, including London's West End. Jordan has been around the world 2 3/4 times. He currently lives in Vancouver and works in New Media; capital N, capital M. You can reach him via jordan at international jet trash dot com.
