On Thursday my friend Max and I went downtown for his friends art show, and then we were headed to the Flux event at the Cooper Design Space. I’m always hesitant to go to smaller art shows, as a lot of the time the work can be very amateur-ish, something I will not go into as I don’t want to offend anyone. Anyhow, we were going to see his friend, Brice Bischoff. We walk into the gallery, and I notice a beautiful blown up photo on the wall, and thank god, it’s his friends work, and the image you see at the top.
Brice is from New Orleans, went to school at LSU and the Art Insititute and now lives and shoots here in Los Angeles. His work ranges all over the place, though I’d say a lot of it is quite minimal. Really beautiful stuff to check out.
I’ve been really wanting to post about photographers lately, I feel as though there’s been a certain lack of photo posts. So I thought I’d start out by posting about one of my favorite photographers out there, Corey Arnold. Corey is famous for his photos at sea with the Deadliest Catch crew. His images are pretty spectacular and always feel so epic. Lately he’s been doing more commercial stuff, like his recent spread in Monocle magazine.
The photos above were taken in Russia and Norway, and I thought they had some really great colors and tones. Be sure to also give a peak at his blog, which is updated fairly regularly.
Last night I went to the opening of the Generic Man pop-up shop at Space 15 Twenty here in Los Angeles. The event was in conjunction with the launch of Generic Man’s Spring/Summer ’09 line, as well as the addition of a rather sexy line of women’s shoes as well. The evening was rather fun, with plenty of good looking, well dressed people in attendance.
The pop-up itself was beautiful, with lots of structures made of recycled materials like wood and cardboard. The decorations were great, including Generic Ceramics or Pottery or something like that, a line of pots that were for sale and contained some nice succulents. There was also a flat gray Fiat parked in the middle of the space, looking tiny and cute.
To further compliment the shoes and atmosphere there were issues of Arkitip strewn about as well as a display for SUPER Sunglasses. You could even buy the furniture that was on display! If you’re around LA I’d definitely suggest you stop by, they’ve made a really great space.
Check under the cut for a ton more photos and details of the space.

No matter what project I’m working on, I always check the Life Magazine Archive for some sort of interesting image to spark my creativity. The other day I was searching for something, and I somehow came across this strange little set titled UFO Convention. While I don’t think photos about UFO people would be normal, these seemed artistically a bit off, like the photographer really wanted these people to seem bizarre. There’s a few more photos weird photos under the cut.

I received an email from +KN reader Jon Setzen last week telling me about a new site he created for a client, a photographer named Christopher Lamarca. He told me that the site is pretty simple, it’s really meant to just showcase the photos, but I HAD to look at the photos. Curious, I checked them out… and was absolutely blown away.
Mr. Lamarca has an absolutely uncanny eye for taking photos, making images that are almost magical. His Forest Defenders series is beautiful, featuring people from both sides of the issues, the loggers and the people desperate to stop them. As you can see in the images above, the guy is incredible.
Be sure to check out everything on his site, it’s not to be missed.
