I came across the wonderful portfolio of Matt Stuart yesterday and totally got a kick out of it. What makes his photos so great is how clever they are. Sometimes clever can be cheesy, but somehow he captures moments in time that make you chuckle. It’s like he lives in this really weird town, where these odd things happen all the time. He also captures a lot of moments relating with color, or people who happen to be doing the same thing at the same time.
A lot of his photos often contain small details that make his photos even funnier, like an old man with a pickle for a nose.
Gerard Stochl is an Austrian photographer who is currently based out of New York. He’s also part of the super cool Chinatown Soccer Club, so you know he’s gotta’ have some slick moves. He also has a pretty cool portfolio of photos online as well, especially of interest is the Time Well Spent album. Very cool and moody.

I picked up this little booklet from Urban Outfitters a couple weekends and thought it was kind of cool. Basically they hired Mark the Cobrasnake to shoot a bunch of shirts and sneakers in his traditional, impromptu style, and bound it all together into this little booklet. It’s not quite as exciting as his other photos because it’s filled with mostly product shots, and what makes his photos are the people who are in them. But it’s still a well put together catalog filled with some rad clothes.
Trying a different way of doing things, 20×200 is a new project where they release 200 editions of a photo or painting, at $20 a piece. This makes the art affordable, but still collectible. But they also offer larger prints for $200 in editions of 20, and if you’re feeling really rich, you could maybe get one of two limited edition, large prints for $2000.
This is such a great idea, I can’t believe this isn’t some sort of standard by now. I really love the photo above by Kelly Shimoda called ‘Untitled (Hanoi no.2)’. I’m a fan of night photography, and this is a stunning example.
They release new prints on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 2PM, so be sure to mark your calender!
This is my best friend Garrett and I. I’m on the left, if you weren’t sure.
We took this at the Swerve Festival earlier today.
We have a tendency to do buck teeth in all the pictures we take together. That’s what happens when you know someone for 16 years. And I have no idea what’s supposed to be going on in the photo. Like a happy couple on a cloud outside their living room?!
No matter what, it’s genius to me.
Fecal Face has some really great photos they just posted up by the photographer Boogie. He’s become famous for taking tons of black and white photos of people and events from all over the world.The images can be beautiful or horrible things, but they’re always fascinating. If you’ve never seen his work, you should most definitely check it out.

This is a really weird question, but have you ever wanted to live in a website?
I can’t say that I ever have, but after seeing the new site for Checkland Kindleysides, my position has totally changed. Checkland is a graphic and environmental design company based out of Liecester, which seems to be in the middle of England, surronded by nothing but nature. Which is probably where they drew the inspiration for their site from.
Similar in feeling to the Mauricio Alejo image I posted about not too long ago, Checkland uses beautiful and elegant paper cut-outs as background imagery and ways to display their work. The minimal approach is absolutely stunning, as is their incredible body of work. Their Levi’s and Sony campaigns are definitely worth your time to check out.

I found this hysterical image last night in the front of Vice Magazine and had to post it. The photo was taken by Alex Brown, a photographer from New York who has a pretty great collection of portraits (though I’m not so hot on his website, sorry Alex).
