In 2012, a solo exhibit of photos from her book, INCOMPARABLE WOMEN of STYLE, opened at the Fashion Institute of Technology. 


    Her latest book, INCOMPARABLE COUPLES,(ACC Editions) features more than 150 photographs, including the famous shot of Bianca Jagger kissing Mick Jagger at Studio 54 for her birthday party in 1977.

  • Doing the impossible, Pitch exercise: A Youngblood TV show.

    in Writing

    One of the most reviled comics of one of the most reviled periods of comics, Rob Liefeld's Youngblood is an example of everything that was wrong with that era of comics.  But what it lacked in execution it made up for in high concept, a government funded team of celebrity superheroes with varying degrees of honor and idealism vs. cynicism and corruption is actually a concept that could really work in better hands.


    Today Joe Diesel and I will discuss how it could work. We'll be attempting to polish the proverbial turd and talk through what would make for a good Youngblood series for Netflix or HBO.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With Zenith Press Editorial Dir. Erik Gilg

    in Books

    Repurposing is a word much in vogue these days, in a variety of creative arts and professions. Whether you are talking about culinary arts, architecture, interior design, or even visual arts, repurposing of existing foods, buildings, furniture and visual media is growing in popularity and practicality. Repurposing is not a new phenomenon in the publishing world, given the long history of issuing new editions of popular books, often with revised/added material and new introductions. What is new in the publishing world is repurposing an existing published work into an entirely new kind of book and/or other new media. One of the leaders in this new version of repurposing existing books has been Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press)), which has a long history of publishing quality books on military history, technology, and aerospace topics. Instead of simply putting out new editions of existing books, Zenith Press is creating lavishly illustrated and photographically rich large-format additions which are designed to stand on their own, even with owners of the existing editions.


    To learn more about book/media repurposing, join author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and radio host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guest this week is Zenith Press Editorial Director Erik Gilg, one of the principles in their ongoing program to repurpose existing books like Co. Aytch by Sam Watkins, and Hallowed Ground by James McPherson. So tune in for what will be a lively hour about taking what is old, and making it new again for a new audience. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer their opinions and questions to both gentlemen, about one of the most interesting phenomenons in the publishing world.

    Abolition Of The Sacred And The Deification Of The Faustian Choice

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the rise of the ontologic abyss when God is philosophically tossed out by the noetic elite and society.  Yes, it is popular to espouse norms and standards that are in vogue with the spirit of the age.  However, popularity is a deceitful mistress.  It was said long ago that "Often the powers of darkness would win us to betray us in deepest consequence."  Without God there is only the selfish and the tiresome subjective to serve.  The old lie(human autonomy) has been dressed anew and has deceived many into believing that life can be meaningful without God.  For the believing ones life is full of meaning when we are occupied with the person of Jesus and his finished work.
