  1. Rumors of my demise…

    10 May 2018

    Bridging realities, Los Angeles 2017 I’m still alive.  I’ve had a ton to write about as well, but the formula is broken without the images to accompany the narratives.  So I’ve put it all on hold while I’ve focused on making other kind of images using other techniques and technologies…


  2. Timothy

    01 Feb 2018

    “Timothy” K-Town 2017 There are few people that I call good friends.   I think a lot of of it has to do with the fact that I’ve never really been good at being a friend to another male adult.  I have a hard time connecting with my gender on…


  3. Hairy Scary

    12 Jan 2018

    “Hairy Scary” Santa Monica 2017 The idea for this image came in a flash.  Ella and I were sitting in the living room.  I was reading the Sunday New York Times and Ella was behind me, on the other side of the room brushing her hair with what could only…


  4. Low

    09 Jan 2018

    “Low” Venice Beach 2017 One of the best parts about living where I live is that I’m only a stones throw from the Venice Beach boardwalk.  Venice is seething with images just begging to be made and time after time when I head down there, close to sunset with a…


  5. Behind

    04 Jan 2018

    “Behind” Carson, 2017 Over the break I’ve taken some time to edit.  I’ve tried to be brutally honest with myself and the result has left me feeling a little conflicted.  Of my last 250-300 or so pictures I had pulled perhaps 20-30 selects.  That puts my hit rate in the…


  6. Call Eli

    30 Dec 2017

    “Call Eli” Los Angeles 2017 This store was someone’s dream… I’m going to say that it was Eli’s store and ergo Eli’s dream of how he was going to make it big in the world.  He had a dream of how he was going to leave his mark on Los Angeles…


  7. The Reader

    29 Dec 2017

    “The Reader” Manhattan Beach 2017 The facet of film photography that hooked me was the aspect of full commitment.  By full commitment I’m referring to all aspects of photography that a digital shooter will waste time checking or changing or adjusting rather than shooting and trusting their instincts.  When I load a roll, I’m committing to black and…


  8. A is for accident

    07 Dec 2017

    “A is for accident” On the days leading up to that trip to Ikea a couple weeks back, I had an aching feeling.  Anyone who has shot long enough with the same camera–especially film cameras with a bevy of mechanical bits–can tell you with some degree of accuracy when something isn’t…


  9. Fuck you man

    23 Nov 2017

    “Fuck you man” The story behind this image starts as a familiar one.  I’m out shooting downtown and something catches my eye. I quickly frame up and hit the shutter.  A few weeks later I look at the negatives and it either worked out or it didn’t.  Sometimes when I get the images…


  10. At the end of the day

    20 Nov 2017

    “At the end of the day 1” ‘At the end of the day 2” “At the end of the day 3” Nothing today will be related to photography really.  You’ve been warned.   I haven’t processed any film this month so far.  In fact I haven’t shot very much this month…


  11. Hello, Hej

    17 Nov 2017

    “Hello, hej” “Mirror mirror… mirror…” “Twin size bed” If you’ve spent most of your adult life in Sweden and then moved abroad, it’s a moral imperative to locate your closest Ikea the second you come up for air.  It’s a law actually… in the Swedish constitution.  Given that subconscious mandate we find ourselves, from time…


  12. Shadows and legs

    14 Nov 2017

    “Shadows and legs” I made this image on a Sunday a while back.  AM and I had just picked up the girls in Century City and were headed to the Farmer’s Market in Beverly Hills for some fresh produce and then to the library so Ester could take-out a few books.  The…


  13. An Ending

    11 Nov 2017

    “An End” The image says a lot but not the whole story.  Since the early days of scientific exploration, coinciding with European imperialism, we white people have done whatever we deemed nessecary at the time to further our empires and our fortunes.  We have always perpetrated these crimes of progress off the backs of…


  14. Eloper

    “Eloper” elope [ih-lohp] verb (used without object), eloped, eloping. 1.to run off secretly to be married, usually without the consent or knowledge of one’s parents.  2.to run away with a lover.  3.to leave without permission or notification; escape: At age 21, the apprentice eloped from his master. 4.(of a person with a mental…


  15. Half and half

    06 Nov 2017

    “Half and half” On the same day as I made the portrait of Magnolia, the kids and I stopped at the Hammer for a little Saturday culture.  I wanted to see the Radical Women exhibit and I think the kids wanted to go to the book store and then maybe take…


  16. (This is) Magnolia and her jacket

    05 Nov 2017

    “(This is) Magnolia and her jacket” The kids and I were walking back from the Hammer when I saw this lovely young lady sitting on a stoop waiting for a Taxi.  She was looking at something on her phone and smiling with this big beautiful smile.  Then I noticed her…


  17. At the end of the day

    03 Nov 2017

    “Trifecta” “Smoke shop” “Ladder” “Curious boys” “Bike your walk” I love the sunsets here in Santa Monica and I don’t get out as often as I wish to shoot in that glorious light.  During the summer it’s a bit easier since sunset comes just late enough that I can make it out…
