“Sakura” Zine Release at Basel Miami

I am beyond stoked to announce my new zine “Sakura”, shot with Takahiro Morita of Tokyo’s Far East Skate Network (FESN) designed by Mike Sikora, and published by  the Milk Gallery will debut this week at Art Basel Miami. If you’re in town, stop by the Juxtapoz Mag club house starting tomorrow (Thursday) to pick up a copy! The zine will also be available online in the Milk Gallery store soon.


Soaker Promo for Wharfcat Records

Brooklyn based “punk, noise rock, [and] art-damaged sludge metal” band Soaker released their debut 7″ on Wharfcat Records today. These guys are great friends of mine, so I was stoked when they came to me with this out-there idea for a promo photo, which we had way too much fun working on it.

You can read an amazingly sardonic interview with the band over at CLRVYNT, listen to their single from the record, Sendhi,  on AdHoc, AND you can order yourself a copy from Wharfcat’s website here.

Congrats dudes!


Rockaway’s Music Scene is at Hightide – Brooklyn Magazine


Probably one of my favorite assignments of the year so far – the beach and a sweaty DIY show in Far Rockaway. Read the whole story shot, for Brooklyn Magazine here, and check out some more summer longing in my latest portfolio, by the sea.



New Website Updates

I just updated the music section of my website to include some of my favorite shots from the pat 2 years at Northside Festival as well as lots of local shows.

Here’s Grandmaster Flash doing what he does working the crowd at Mccarren Park in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for Northside 2016, and a quite different crowd at the Subhumans show at Saint Vitus just a couple hours later.

Please check it out at www.colegiordano.com!
You might see a familiar face or two.


Cryptic Carousel for Bandcamp

I recently got to indulge my inner music nerd and love for all things DIY in the music scene when I met the man behind Cryptic Carousel, and photographed the workspace where he masterminds the production of his brilliant cassette tapes (among all other things analog). See more photos and read the full interview for Bandcamp here.


Double cassette release for Middle Grey’s “Mirror Medicine”.


WEAVES for Bandcamp

Had a blast shooting the totally awesome Toronto based band, Weaves, for the amazing music streaming site Bandcamp a couple weeks back. The story is now live. Click here to see more photos and read the full interview.


#AsianFoodMafia for Brooklyn Magazine

Here are the tear sheets from the story I shot for Brooklyn Magazine on the #AsianFoodMafia – a group of like minded Asian chefs attempting to change the perception and culture surrounding Asian cuisine in New York City, as well as the way chefs work with each other, in order to create a proactive and supportive community within the industry.

The story can be seen in the February issue, available on newsstands now.
