MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND - GET FREE ON YOUR MOTORBIKE!
I went to LA to shoot the incredibly talented Shinya Kimura, who has been quietly building mind-blowing moto machines for….as long as he could pick up a tool. Considered by most an artist, Kimura was the epitome of humble, describing himself as a mechanic. We got to spend two days with him, riding and talking about bikes. It was a fantastic peak into a simple and fully charming life.
We shot for On Paper Magazine, which is an annual journal which publishes each issue in limited run and each issue focuses on one subject, commissioning one photographer & writer to create work around them. It was a very liberating way to work & I enjoyed the freer approach to image making and the final product looks GORGEOUS.
We of course made a short film! You can view it here.
REMEMBER WHEN NYLON MAGAZINE LAUNCHED??? I DO I WAS THERE FOR THEIR LAUNCH PARTY AT B BAR! Hosted by Audrey Bernstein, Creative Director at the time Helena Christensen was in attendance, Camilla Speirs, fellow mag maven Jane Pratt, future-stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe of course showed face, and of course Jennifer Bethea….
WOW THE MEMORIES - I can’t wait for more outdoor parties & more memories…..if it ever gets warm!!
We went to Fontana, CA to photograph young race car drivers for Hero Magazine. It was so much fun to watch these young kids, so immersed in this culture, having the times of their lives. I don’t know too much about cars, but I certainly got a crash course on this job…
