We're quite obsessed with our roster of photographers/friends who have worked with us over the years. A few years back, our design director, Elena, introduced us to the extremely talented and photography obsessed creator, Noah Jashinski. Over the years, Noah has created some wonderful pieces for us from our Joshua Tree day trippers to our Griffith Observatory feature to this week's Portland story. For those of you that don't know Noah's work, we highly recommend familiarizing yourself with it by checking out his website. And dive further into his mind with his upcoming show "Seventy-Two Hours," shot entirely in black and white. Noah's work tends to blur the line between fiction and reality, and as good as anyone we've witnessed, makes the desirable and not so desirable seem within reach. There's almost an uncomfortable attainability of the lifestyle his images present. The desirability depending on the viewers desires and interpretation of the story telling that Noah's body of work portray. To be more specific, in Noah's words, Seventy-Two Hours is a study of intimacy, trust, and vulnerability, examining both the authentic and the staged as captured over a three-day period with two distinct subjects. If you like what you see, we would love for you to support his KickStarter project, which he created in an effort to print a book of his work. Best thing here is that by supporting the project, you get a book of his photography. Which is a win-win from our point of view.
If you want to check out the show there are more details here.
Here's a few highlights from the show. Hope to see you there.
