From artist's bio:
For economic reasons, as well as to obtain health insurance, I took a job as a Security Guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from March 2008–Nov 2009. I created and co-edited a new independent magazine for the guards called SW!PE which received media attention; NY Times, NPR, Reuters TV, The Leonard Lopate Show, etc.
Another result of my time at the museum was the creation of The Americans List where 270 photographers commented on the Robert Frank Looking In exhibit at the MET. This book will be self-published in May 2012.
