Introducing Geoff Badner

We’re very excited to announce Brooklynite Geoff Badner has joined TMN as our Contributing Photographer. He’s done lots of features here before, and there are also a bunch in the works. You can read about his background on the Masthead.

What’s not mentioned is his uncanny resemblance to actor Johnny Depp, and his good humor and character. You can see plenty of his beautiful work at his Web site, geoffbadner.com.

And, because I haven’t done this in a while, here’s a list of recent favorite things, having nothing or little to do with Geoff Badner:

Gringos by Charles Portis
