A few of my favorites from my shoot with artist Alma Allen for my Artist Series. If you don’t know of Alma’s work, check it out here and here. You can also buy some of his work at Heath Ceramics and see some at the new Ace Hotel in downtown LA. Thank you Alma for letting my come by your studio and spend sometime getting to know you, your art, and your little puppy Billy. Cheers!

Lucid Stead

Recently Sarah and I had the pleasure of spending the day with artist Phillip K Smith III and his latest work  Lucid Stead in Joshua Tree, CA.   We spent a solid 14 hours with the installation and I left feeling like I could shoot so much more.  Phillip describes Lucid Stead this way:  “Like the enveloping vista that changes hue as time passes, Lucid Stead transforms. In daylight the 70 year old homesteaders shack reflects and refracts the surrounding terrain as if a mirage or hallucination. As the sun tucks behind the mountains, slowly shifting, geometric color fields emerge until they hover in the desert darkness”.   Above are some of my favorites from our time in Joshua Tree.  Enjoy!
