Please check out David’s new special and watch for re-runs, it’s well worth it.

There is no way to describe it other than seeing it and the show does a great job of getting the reality across. Besides the magic, there is his performance art– no other word for the combination of science, daredevil risk-taking and beauty.

Here’s David at the grave of his hero and childhood inspiration, Houdini, deep in Queens, which we shot for the Sundance Channel’s Iconoclasts show:

    I caught the iconoclast and beautiful struggle shows and I agree, David Blaine is amazing.
    I always wondered which lucky photographer got to tag along on the iconoclast shoots. Now I know you are one of the lucky guys.

    Great shot of David.

  2. Great picture. Very evocative of magic mystery and reverence. I haven’t seen Houdini’s grave before.

    Amazing?! David Blaine is an alien, and I mean that not in the “I need a green card” sense.
    What he does is flabbergasting.

  5. A wonderful photo – a real 2 superstars in the world of magic!!
