Utopia: Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll

I had some problems with my computer a few weeks ago, and unfortunately the files for my persona project were deleted.

These first four shots are from a spread that Tim Walker and Tim Burton worked on together for Harper's Bazaar. I'm a huge Tim Burton fan so seeing these two work together made my week.

Tim Walker's work just feels so dreamy and effortless to me that it takes on a life of it's own. It's all so beautiful in it's own wonderful way.

Richard Avedon has done some amazing portrait work that just fascinates me.

I could go on for days about how much I am in love with Ryan Russell's work. He's a professional concert photographer from Birmingham, Alabama who is essentially everything I want to be when I grow up. He travels around the country to shoot shows, takes portrait photos of my favorite musicians, and makes a living from doing so. His more recent work has taken a turn to grainy black and white photos in darker tones, while his older work had light blurs and were a bit brighter.

3, 3, 3

3 complete strangers:

3 people i'd like to know:jack antonoff
tom conrad and max steger

3 people i know:
behind the sign is dylan, a merchandise guy i've met several times.
my friend aisha.

offensive images

i can't stand images that are overly staged and are obvious about how hard they are trying to be "artsy." photography should be effortless, or at least appear to be.

my friend shannon once told me "photos shouldn't need writing in them. a good photo will speak for itself."
this last one has pretty much everything that i don't like all in one. shaped bokeh (i've seen so much of these that it's just boring to me now), inspirational text (see previous talk about words in photos), and the polaroid border.
