Most times in the late afternoon, I need a break – a little time offscreen to recharge and breathe. Photo walks are the perfect excuse to step away from my desk and go outside. Today, my buddy Naz walked over to the row where my desk is and said "Dude. Let's go shoot some photos."
I wanted a good way to share my mobile photography of New York City with my Mom back home in Missouri. My folks don't really spend time on the web, so clicking a link to an Instagram feed, VSCO Grid or Flickr stream was not the way they'd prefer to experience my photography. And there is no way I was going to consider dumping them all into an email either...so, I decided to send them a photo book.
Crated launched to the world with a gallery event at the Soho Arthouse in New York City. The event was a big success with art from over 500 Crated artists on digital displays and sample prints up on the gallery walls. I am proud to be one of the artists they selected for this group exhibition. *sniff of confidence*
I've always loved reading magazines. But, not just any magazine...it needs to be a good magazine—with purpose, a strong voice that speaks to me as a reader. And let me tell you, that drastically narrows the choices for me as a magazine person. Very few magazines can actually fill the bill. The Collective Quarterly is one of those that does, in a big way. If you dig on creativity, buy this mag right now.
