On friday night (9/12), four bags were taken out of the trunk of my crappy 1983 light blue toyota celica. It either occured on houston street near wooster in SOHO, nyc or on Lorimer st. (near driggs) in greenpoint, Brooklyn. The bags contained all of my camera equipment, important papers, rolls of film I shot, unexposed film, and clothes. I am an art student with a great deal of debt and no insurance. I can't afford to replace most of the items, and some things, like my negatives and papers, are simply irreplaceable. I have been making art with these cameras for years and have an attachment to them. I'm pretty devastated by this loss and am willing to offer a handsome reward for the safe return of my things, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. It will be worthwhile to whoever has the equipment, because you won't be able to fetch too much for it on the used marked. These things are very important to me, and I am only concerned about their safe return. Please contact me if you have them. I can be reached anytime at 917.345.0206 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a brief list of things taken. thanks.
