A brief glance
A brief glance. Italian magazine. Skateboarding. With an eye on whats happening on the streets. Independent. Had been collecting images with my friend Igor for his interview all last year. Surprised. One of the pictures made the cover. Grazie Davide. Grazie Guido. Grazie Igor. Click here for the rest of the pictures.
Got this wall for two weeks at Photobastei. Vernissage tonight. Thursday, February 13th. Should stay there four two weeks. The whole thing is about 3x1.5m. Nailed it. Simple prints. Called Urban Extracts. The objects that jump at me all of a sudden if I leave my eyes unattended.
Oh. Forgot. I got an artwork on a t-shirt. Quick picture with a little red paint found in Sofia 2012. Ladies only. Limited. Found at few shops in Switzerland. Not because we wanted to make it fancy. It's the nature of micro labels. Support them.
Not quite sure yet. Think I got a new assignment documenting a cinema in Zurich. Challenging new field. Terrible light. Free movies. Interesting characters. Such as Andrea Thiele explaining her work enthusiastically.
Shot her first pictures when she came. Shot her last pictures when she left. The only approach I had to fashion so far. Cheers Rakel. You brought Zurich some color. Cheers Noemi. What you did to the hair was crazy. And cheers to Nusch and El Lokal. You don't find many bars that let you shoot and have an old fuck screaming at you to leave his place at the same time.
Kilian Zehnder for Kingpin Magazine. Switzerland's finest. Next big thing. Going worldwide. This guy is as modest as a person as he's smooth, agile and precise on a deck. 2014 will be his year. I bet on a nomination for Europe's Skateboard Rookie of the year award.
Will here popped up a year ago and brought power to the Zurich skate scene. He's loud. He's proud. A good sport. Good humored. There should be more of South Africa in our city. There should be more of South Africa in the world. Especially of the kind we lost today.
One more down the road. Back from Sicily shooting for Vans. Back from an other skate trip where I only got one single shot for my personal folder. Don't need more. Great country. Great people. Incredible food. And in general an intensely productive trip.
Completing work on our last odyssey. Last night. Last pictures. First night where we'd know where to sleep. Relief. Singing, Chanting, Horrible voices. Great laughter. Great friendship. This one sums it up best. Livio. Igor. Bella.
Those and the Weirdo
Working on band pictures and album artwork. New to me. Friends make me do stuff. Those and the weirdo. Weirdo friends. Trusting me in something I've never done before. That's actually nice. Thank you.
Spin my hype machine!
