london-based curator stuart pilkington asked over 100 photographers from around the world to participate in his newest project BOOK • FILM • PAINTING and i’m happy to be one of them. this image is inspired by dutch golden age painters like jacob van loo and is part of a bigger series i’m working on surrounding the concept of intimacy. i’m always looking for models, so if you’re inspired by this image and interested in working with me, please do get in touch.
i’m in the new iPhone 5 commercial, taking photos even! i’m at 0:21 … have a look.
steady progress on the handmade house continues. here are some visual updates from the last six months.
with the basic structure in place, next come the walls. the first layer is a mixture of harvested clay and hay.
then, time for the big guns… machinery! the outer layer of the walls have finely ground hay in the mix.
what’s up, slackers?
aubrey wraps the support beams in string, which gives the bottom layer of clay something to hold on to.
some students from the tassajara zen joinery apprenticeship program lend a helping hand.
watch and learn.
the interior, including the newest addition (the non-structural inner wall), ready to be coated.
a non sequitur worth seeing: the rock wall.

Here are a few images I shot to help promote this year’s fundraiser for Creative Growth Art Center, the world’s oldest and largest center for artists with disabilities. Last year’s runway fashion show was such a hit, they decided to turn it into a three-day party this year, one of which I’ll be playing with Shock.

(show runs from jan 18th – feb 23)
the show, curated by aimee friberg, includes work that “examines our desire to make order from, or understand the interconnectedness of the universe, from subatomic particles up through the species. whether observing expressions of landscape – abstracted, bastardized or imbued with mysticism – or zooming in to see the patterns that exist at the particle level, we intuit the moving force that connects.”
this reminder of interconnectivity is particularly poignant at this time of year, so in the spirit of our collective newness, i share a few images from the first dawn of 2013, spent visiting 49 palms oasis in joshua tree.
