My brother spends quality time with his son.

My uncle, Francisco Gutierrez (Pacho), passed peacefully last Friday after complications from pneumonia. He was 67 years young. The wake and viewing will be at Lynch Funeral home in Queens this Saturday June 2nd, the funeral service will be on Monday June 4th. He was in a nursing home over the last 3 years, after complications from heart surgery that had failed to provide proper drainage to spinal fluid and caused seizures to his brain.

I post these images today as a remembrance to a loving and kind man who was very dear and close to our family.
He was many things:
a loving father and uncle
immigrant who helped add flavor to this country
and old school leftist from the Che Guevara days who would have insightful conversation with me about politics and power structures.

I come from a large extended & tight knit family and very grateful that everyone has been helpful in doing their part. I find his loss hitting me everyday in small doses.
Most of all I’ll miss his energy and conversations.

Several years ago, a friend of mine @karamasi started an event called #thegreathotdogcookoff to raise funds for city harvest and other food based charities in the NYC area. There would be a meet and greet party a few weeks before the main event and my contribution was to photograph the participating amateur hotdog chefs. I’d setup a quick portrait studio using Dynalites, Mola Beauty dish and seamless paper in the backyard. β€’

The fun part was letting each personality and quirkiness shine through. The only direction I gave was they had to use a prop anyway they saw fit. We had a rubber hotdog, tongs, giant BBQ fork and condiment dispensers. β€’

The first time it was photographed, we used a bright yellow backdrop to symbolize mustard. The following year we used red for ketchup and the year after green for relish. β€’
