    Here’s my favorite outtake from the ilovemakonnen shoot for The Fader. It was a good lesson for me because he had been sitting in that same seat smoking blunt after blunt for hours (it was 2 or 3AM) and I had stopped shooting a long time ago because I was bored of shooting the same thing, then I thought ‘no, I’m gonna get something good out of this’ and really tried to work it. Ended up with one of my favorite shots from the whole weekend. This was shot in the studio with Mike Will Made It in ATL.



  4. I shot author Marlon James for today’s New York Times. His new novel “A Brief History of Seven Killings” is out today.

    Strangely enough, this was actually my first time working for the newspaper. I’m pretty excited with how it came out.

  5. D the weekly magazine of Italy’s la Repubblica newspaper published a feature of my Before We Land project this week. I’m not really sure what it says, but it looks great!


  6. I’m involved in a couple cool events at Photoville this weekend.

    On Friday evening, I’ll be showing work in the Slideluck projections. It’s curated by Matthew Leifheit from Vice and Gideon Jacobs from Magnum. They’re always fun. Come see some photos and bring a dish for the potluck. RSVP here.

    On Saturday afternoon, I’m speaking as part of the PDN 30 Panel on advice for emerging photographers, along with Josh Wool, Dina Litovsky, and Holly Stuart Hughes. It starts at 5pm.

    There are a bunch of other cool exhibits and plenty to see. Come out and say what’s up. Then I’ll come meet y’all at the Art Book Fair on Sunday.



  7. I’ve been working with J. Crew for two years now. They’re my most consistent client, but also my close friends. We’ve worked together on countless projects and stories. Today they’ve launched a beautiful home for all the work we’ve been creating. Check out the new J. Crew blog.
