Frio Canyon

I recently spent a couple days hiking through the Frio Canyon in the Texas Hill Country taking photos for the Laity Lodge Foundation. There is an quiet calm in this place that is unmistakable. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing the sun brighten the shadows in the river or forget the smell of caliche and cypress on the descent into the canyon. View a photo essay with additional imagery on the foundation’s site.

After being truly struck by the photographs of Will Adler via his work in various zines and publications over the years, I visited and photographed his solo show last summer in NYC at the Danziger Gallery. Shortly thereafter I was in LA and met up with Will at his home and we ventured out to the beach. This mini day-in-the-life was documented and appeared in the most recent issue of Australian surf and travel magazine, Paper Sea Quarterly. Pick up Vol. 2 Issue 4 on newsstands now or order online via Paper Sea.

Above: photos of the Totokaelo space in Seattle. These images were originally shot for Kinfolk’s City Guide series and were never published — excited to belatedly share a peek into one of the nation’s finest shops.

A few months ago I spent a sunny day-in-the-life with the Parton family in Los Angeles. The day took us through the westside of town for breakfast, a market visit, and a surf check at Topanga. In the afternoon we drove east to the downtown Arts District (with visits to their Apolis and Alchemy Works shops) and closed with a jaunt to the Fashion District to Jane Palmer’s Noon Dye Studio.

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the new NYC home of La Garçonne. The airy space and its custom build-out were designed by renowned architect Solveig Fernlund to perfectly complement the expertly curated collection of clothing and accessories. The precise details, light and flow of the space serve as a welcome wind of freshness in the industry. Highly recommended.
Read/see the original feature via Remodelista and drop by the shop at 465 Greenwich Street in Tribeca.
