Ooga Booga

What was originally shot for a now defunct Nothing Major, here is a feature on the downtown shop and gallery space for the amazing, Ooga Booga. Located just east of the LA River on S. Mission, the shop houses an elaborate collection of art books, journals and zines; a gleaming mine of thoughtful publications. The shop’s adjacent gallery space boasts massive square footage and an on-going program of unique exhibitions from reputable artists (Laura Owens’ “12 Paintings” show pictured above).

Italy, 2006

Found some old shots I took in Italy back in 2006 while scouring some old external hard drives. I’d love to one day revisit some of these places from that trip: Lago di Como, Vernazza, Siena and Firenze.

Recents


Been catching my breath the last couple weeks. A lot of works pending, so please stay tuned. Here’s a shot I snapped during some photo work Leigh was doing for Spartan.

Fall Windows


It finally is starting to feel like Fall around here in Austin. Leaves have somewhat changed, temperatures have dropped and houses are warm and glowing. Above: a few shots looking out of my windows on a recent chilly morning.

Autumn Music 2013 for FvF



At long last, the fall playlist is here. I had the pleasure of curating this mix for my friends at Freunde von Freunden in Berlin.
The FvF Mixtape #63 was drawn together from a variety of artists across a breadth of genres through recent releases this year; all befitting an autumnal tag. Links, info and previous seasonal mixes below.

Filson, USA


A few months ago, I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the new Filson headquarters. The well-lit factory is on the bottom floor with the offices and showrooms above in the beautiful warehouse just south of downtown Seattle. Renown for their heritage (c. 1897) and quality of outdoor goods and luggage, Filson is bigger and better than ever.
The above photos are an addendum from the original feature on Nothing Major.

JBM



I’ve had the pleasure of traveling and playing for the past few weeks with JBM. Hailing originally from Montreal and residing primarily in Brooklyn for the past half-decade, JBM’s music is one that both haunts and intrigues the human spirit. Highly Recommended.
Above are some photos from recent shows and a video session featuring a track from his 2012 release, Stray Ashes.
More on JBM here.

LOMA SANTA: Update


Thanks to all my friends and family that came out to the opening reception of Loma Santa at Spartan last week.
The photos will be up until mid-October in case you missed the opening.

Above are the 12 photos that were printed for this show.
They are all 12×18″ chromira prints in custom, handmade frames from Hat Trick Woodworking and a few are still available for purchase.
Please check in at Spartan for more info and availability.

 

I-84 (Part 1)











A few weeks ago, we drove from Vancouver, BC back to Texas in just three days. The most epic part of the journey was around dusk the first night on a stretch of Interstate 84 between Baker City, Oregon and Boise, Idaho. These images were taken from the backseat of our vehicle at 70mph.
