A Cinematographer/ Photographer Turns a Warehouse into a Studio

eye2eye studio is on the outskirts of Greenwich Village in New York. The studio is a corner of the mid-19th-century warehouse-cum-stable ''I kept looking and looking, and I kept coming back to 162 Charles Street. One particularly sunny day I walked up to the roof and the sun was moving across the water and I said: 'O.K., let's think about this place.' It was pretty hypnotic.''

162 Charles Street is a red brick building it is now a studio, office. The 2,750-square-foot studio (empty except for an enormous roll of white paper hung from the 16-foot ceiling) from the mezzanine and say, ''I never thought I'd ever own anything like this.'' In May of that year moved in, a late 19th-century building, which contained close to 10,000 square feet of usable space in the then-four-story space. (We have since eliminated a floor and added a mezzanine, bringing the total down to 13.750 square feet.) Some days I just go around the streets of New York looking for just that shot.
