PHOTOG LOVE: CARNALUS VIDAL

29 May
So I spotted this picture on somebody’s tumblr that I thought was really ill and upon clicking the original link was transported to the blog of Carnalus Vidal, and got my mind blown wide open. First things first, Vidal is an erotic photographer and with that being said his work is breathtaking…..in more ways than one. Genuinely arousing and beautiful work. I think I love him.

STREET ART [TELEGRAPH AVE]

30 Mar

Been taking the photography a little more seriously and actually getting out to do some test shots. Right now I have no formal training, but I’ve been working on subject matter and composition. Lighting and other techniques will come later. I’m working with a Nikon Cool Pix, so the quality isn’t that great, but I still like the end results. These were taken a couple of months ago during my first stroll down Telegraph Ave in Oakland.  Oakland has a beautiful street art culture. There’s so much passion and creativity on display on trash cans, walls, newspaper dispensers; it’s very inspiring. The imagery in these three pieces was very powerful to me. I have an affinity for R.I.P murals as morbid as that might be. You can sense the love that goes into the creation of something like that. It’s truly a monumental way to honor the passing of a loved one, and everyone who has the chance to view that feels that energy in one way or another. This is an ongoing series so I’l be posting more pics soon.

Just hooked up with a DOPE magazine out of LA, I’ll be doing some writing for them and it feels good to be linked up with some creative individuals  all reaching for the same goal. Show some love, click it and check it out.

INSPIRATION:PHOTOGRAPHER ELIAS WESSEL

19 Jun

I’ve always been a person of extremes, and when it comes to my sense of what impacts me as an artist, I am equally fascinated by both realism and surrealism. To me, fantasy and reality are equally important parts of our humanity. In my world the ordinary is extraordinary, the wordly is ethereal, and I find myself most drawn to artists who exemplify that cohesive duality in their work. With that being said, Elias Wessel is the truth. His photgraphs could double as stills from a dream and that’s what I like about them. They stroke my imagination and play with my perception of that boundary that seperates the tangible and intangible aspects of our wordly experiences.
