kristin shaw

on Tuesday, July 19, 2011

California-based Kristin Shaw is infinitely cool. We had our eyes on her long before this blog was even born, and her trail of film-induced grain and dropped-my-camera-on-the-concrete light leaks have never ceased to leave us in a state of awe.

q: we know this is a pretty standard one by now, but who are you?
a: i'm just a typical girl who hates her life. some people call me kristin, or bad words

q: the last album you put on repeat?
a: i've been listening to patti smith's radio ethiopia a lot recently. i listen to most patti smith albums on repeat

q: do you collect anything?
a: i have a habit of picking up things that have been dropped on the ground, like notes or lists or business cards or feathers or things of the sort. you know there's some kind of story associated with those things, but you never know exactly what it is. i find that intriguing 

q: what'd you do yesterday?
a: yesterday i bought a new bike and was on it less than sixty seconds before i ate shit and guts were gushing out of my knee. got me some stitches and a pretty brutal road rash, and i now can't ride my bike for two 
weeks. definitely a relatively shitty day

q: your favourite camera?
a: i'm a huge fan of disposable cameras because they're so easy and get the job done. favorite that i own is an argoflex, twin lenses are super fun. i take most of my images with a canon elan ii though, i love it cause it's a beast, i've dropped it out of cars and in lakes and shit

elena ayllon

on Thursday, June 16, 2011

q: who are you?
I’m Elena. I was born in 1986 and grew up in Tokyo. At the moment, I live in Madrid but at the same time I’m in all the places I have already been.

q: what can you see out of your window at the moment?
I feel irresistible to contemplating my life behind windows, through a crystal, just like with my camera. Life seems more beautiful when I look through my camera.

q: your favourite thing about growing up in the 90s?
I would have preferred living in the 1700s in the Caribbean and being a pirate.

q: you say your camera is your lover. what else do you love?
My camera is my life mate, it comes along with me in each journey.
I like snow and hot chocolates in winter, and road trips and sunflowers in summer. I like freethinkers all year.

q: any webpage you'd like to plug?
I admire Elena Kali’s underwater photography:

janis ganga

Le photographe français Janis Ganga's portfolio is grungy on the outside, sweet on the inside.

q: who are you?
I'm Janis, I'm from a small town in south of France and I'm a student so except my psychology degree my main occupations are getting drunk and taking photos.

q: which languages can you speak? have you ever had a dream in a language other than your native tongue?
Well french is my native language but i'm "fluent" in english as I was living in London for a bit and after a few month of not talking french at all, except on the phone with my parents, I was actually dreaming and thinking in english. It was pretty weird to be honest!

q: what album have you got on repeat at the moment?
The Nuggets compilation vol.II ! It's a compilation of the best garage rock bands from the 60's. There's like 120 songs but i think i like them all.

q: if you were an animal, what would you be?
Definitely a cat, i'm a cat person ! 

q: any websites you want to plug?
My friend Kim : 
He is really talented and he has great taste, you should definitely check his flickr out !

che parker

on Sunday, May 22, 2011

Che Parker hails from Perth, Western Australia - which, although being referred to as the most remote city on earth, also features among the top ten most liveable cities in the world. Che is a self-described kook, with a portfolio that is quirky enough, but also downright cool. His images speak of an everlasting summer, and his landscapes are breathtaking.

q: who are you?
a: I'm a guy, from Perth in West Australia. Obsessed with learning and driven by a need to see positive change in the world. It sounds a bit naff to my own ears, but it's the truth. Truth is another thing I really like.

q: what's the best thing about living in perth? the worst?
a: I reckon that Perth's isolation and quieter pace of city life breeds a particular type of person, the type that makes their own fun and the type that really leaps into things with a genuine urge to seize the day. Also, the lack of "things" to do in the city seems to lead to a lot of people sittin' around getting high and getting their creative on. This place punches way above its weight musically. Did I mention the beaches? They're real nice too.

The worst? The 'no" mentality. There's a strong opposition to change in this city, as if the place is perfect as it is. I'm sorry, but no place is perfect, and I don't think there's a lot to be said for stagnancy. It's led to a lot of great ideas being realised in a very half-arsed manner. Case in point being our Bell Tower, it could've been incredible but instead it's an underwhelming spire of mediocrity that looks less a shining monument to human endeavour and more a cockroach trying to mount a praying mantis.

q: what are you most excited about at the moment?
a: That it's 2011, I've finished my marine science and journo degree, I've just had surgery to fix my dicky knee, and I'm entirely unencumbered by anything except my own need to make things happen. The next 12 months should see a real shift in my photography and writing as I move towards doing some real purposeful documentary, story-telling types of things. Super keen.

q: vegemite or peanut butter?
a: Vegemite 4 lyf. Raised on that bersgusting looking stuff. Can't hack peanut butter at all.

q: any pages you want to plug here?
 a: Yeeeop, a mate of mine, Mikey Litton and his solo project Cow Parade Cow. Imagine a bastard child of Animal Collective and Vampire Weekend raised in the wet wilds of West Oz, or something like that.
Also, David Boyson Cooper. He seems well known in these Flickr circles already, but I really dig his shiz, it's real.

New York-based photographer Brian James' images are edgy, and bursting with the candid moments in life that make the ordinary extraordinary. He's been featured in DOE, Screaming Silence and Unicorn Dream magazines - now it's our turn to probe him with a few burning questions.

q: who are you?
a: My name is Brian James Kip and I am originally from New Jersey. I currently live in New York City though at the moment pursuing a BFA in Photography at the School of Visual Arts.
More of my work can be seen at

q: where did you wake up this morning?
a: I woke up this morning in New Jersey at my parents' house to the sound of pouring rain.

q: what does art do for you? what do you do for art?
a: Generally speaking art as a whole makes me stop and think as well as inspire me greatly. I look to a lot of paintings if I'm not looking at photography. Photography rather than art as a whole I think is sort of a release for me. If I'm not creatively putting together a fashion story, I'm capturing fleeting moments intimately or vernacularly shared with others and everyday ordinary objects or places. Art or photography lets me show an almost hidden beauty in these situations that others may not have seen or thought of. I like the idea of capturing something, physically capturing light almost, and preserving it for myself or to share. I think what I am doing for art, or photography, is diving into an aesthetic that many great photographers have shared over many years, and contributing what I have done and where I have been to that collection of photographs. I'd like my work to stand out though on it's own and be recognizable.

q: can you cook?
a: I've grown up around homecooked meals so I have a general idea on how to cook. Living alone, I do cook things that I've learned to make over the years. It'd be fun though to experiment and cook for some friends.

q: any webpages you want to plug?
a: Sure! Some more great work can be seen by a friend of mine, Olivia Locher
