Another UMS has come to pass. It’ll be some time before I can afford to develop those rolls of film, but in the meantime we have the ever-stunning work of Gary Isaacs. I highly recommend checking out his website, and following him on Facebook for a body of work not published anywhere else.
The frame above is a gift. It is a frame to celebrate my muse, Erika Ryann Sedmak's 22nd birthday. Happy birthday, darling. We love you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much.
I recently wrote something about another of Gary’s frames that I think applies here as well:
“Another incredible piece by a very benevolent and kind-hearted man, who, as an artist, contends to be my favorite living photographer. I consider him both a friend and (whether or not he knows it) a teacher; studying his art and watching him work constantly pushes me to progress within the form (if only to some day show him frames that I am truly proud of). Thank you, Gary.”
Needless to say, it is more than an honor for Gary to take your portrait. Amazingly, this is the second time (LOOK). Thanks again, Gary.
Erika recently played a show at the lovely Stephanie Dorman's house, along side Stephanie herself, our dear friends, Poet’s Row, and traveling Austin-native, Picardy III. The show was fantastic and, luckily, documented beautifully by a very sweet man named Lance Ferguson. Being that this is the vanity article that it is, and being that I’d like to start featuring other photographers, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of his frames (specifically ones feature our narcissistic selves).
Thanks again, Lance! We love you, and we think your work is gorgeous.
More photos from far less-talented photographers (who are not my friends) can be found after the jump. They are mostly shit (sorry, Reverb) but I didn’t know where else to put them:
