berlin underground (2007) (life on film series)

I was in berlin in the winter of 2007. In between train stops, I passed through this station and these lights looked so strange to me, like glowing eyes. I was shooting on a konica autoreflex TC and that had a light leak so the film got fogged. I like it even more because of that.

This is the last from negatives post of 2013. Stay tuned for more in 2014.

This was taken on my grandparents porch in waynesville, north carolina in 2003. My granny and grandpa’s house was an awesome place to explore, especially when I was growing up.

I met spike jonze at the hot chocolate tour skate demo at 6th avenue in nashville, tennessee in 2003. My friend jim was in the background talking and spike turned around and I shot this. I was too nervous to walk up to spike and ask to take his portrait. Even though looking back now I know he wouldn’t have cared. I met marc johnson, kenny anderson and loads of others that night. good times. I will have to dig up those photos and scan them one day. This one is from the archives.
