Without a doubt, one of the greatest music videos of all time. The Chris Cunningham/Aphex Twin collaborations are so good it pains me:

May was an awesome month, I shot for Wired and Dazed & Confused. The piece for Wired is up now, we were allowed to shoot scientist Healy Hamilton IN the Rainforest Bio Dome in the Cal Academy of Sciences. There were butterflies darting around, an incredible variety of fishes swimming below us and one very friendly turtle; it was wonderful.

Saul Leiter does incredible color work, evolving from more muted to very lucid tones, all the while, keeping the story in mind. His placement of people, use of movement and ability to capture such evocative scenes in what he sees everyday is unlike anyone else.

Voodoo Soup, and liked the cover art, which I found was by Jean Giraud. This guy is amazing, he also is tremendously versatile; it's worth trolling around the web to see a smattering of his work.

I love shooting kids, but it seems a real rarity to find a magazine wherein a kids wear fashion spread is treated with equal amounts of levity and seriousness, so when I saw Small Magazine, I emailed them right away saying I'd like to shoot for them. And I was lucky enough to hear back! The result was one of the spreads I am most proud of. They allowed me total creative freedom, I shot all kinds of Impossible Project Polaroid, from Artistic TZ to 600 to Fade to Black and more. It was such a joy!

I have been on fire finding new photogs I love. I just discovered Dorothy Hong's work, and she is wonderful. While being very hip, her work moves beyond just shooting cool looking people: her use of natural light is inspiring and she seems to create an interesting dynamic with her subjects - they seem totally unintimidated by her camera.
