I’ve just been dying the last week or so, at least thinkin I was. Turns out I have a gnarly ear infection that’s causing constant massive headaches along with some other weird things like imbalance and in general ‘slow thinking.’ haha. Hoping its on the tail end of things at this point, things are looking up and obviously my doctor didn’t google my symptoms like I did… verdict is that I don’t have cancer. Whoo!
Anyways. Wanted to give a shout out to my friend Mark Von Minden as he’s been doing some awesome things with his cameras. First off these two portraits of myself. A week or so ago we jumped into a studio and started messing around with lighting and old cameras while catching up on life and he goes and snags these two shots…I almost died when I saw them, especially this second one. Can’t even tell you how fancy I feel. Amazing. The dude is also featured on the Impossible Projects Blog for his Autumn Songs Series. Here’s a snippit from his site describing a bit about the project:
“autumnsongs is an evolving analog instant photography series by photographer Mark von Minden. Each autumn a set of new instant photographs are paired with a corresponding set of songs by a variety of artists which are then mixed into a DJ set by Mark. While autumn colors and leaves were the original subject matter, there is also a strong element of abstraction within the work. Ultimately, an overall theme of change and progression informs Mark’s approach to the project each year.”
You should surely check it out, browse the photos and soak up the vibey tunes.
