hi hi,

so a little update on things.
life is really busy right now and it seems like ever since the holidays things have been on fast forward. i am still publishing a book from my wonderful europe travels, the book is just going to have taken longer than expected to get out. i never fully realized how incredibly difficult it is to put a book together-- it's a learning process though and i already feel a million times more equipped for the next time i decide to make one. because i have so much going on right now though it has had to be put on the back burner, so for those of you asking about it and wondering when it will be ready, just know it's in the works and you will have to be patient. i hope once it's released though you will feel it was worth the wait :)

last weekend i had a great opportunity to shoot an up-and-coming band and while i can't say much about it, i can tell you it was a joy to work with everyone involved and i'm excited for people to see the results.
a few other things worth mentioning:

  • i did a little interview for Kaltblut Magazine that you can see here.
  • my work was part of the premiere issue of Sunday Mornings at the River, a lovely little zine. the issue is just beautiful and you can see some images of it here, with 2 of my photos shown in the preview here.
  • my photos of fellow photographer and now good friend josh, taken while i was in london, were chosen as one of the features in the most recent issue of Boys on Film zine, an extension of the brilliant Girls on Film zine (which i had work featured in a few issues ago, see next bullet).
  • i had a feature in the 10th issue of Girls on Film zine back in July so i'm quite late in writing about it, but better late than never. it's worth pointing out particularly because the zine is seriously amazing and a breath of fresh air. you can see the issue here and you can see the feature Dazed and Confused did on it here, with a few of my photos in the spotlight.

that's all I can think of. for now.
best best,

x k

fran, enjoying the sun after a week of rain, may 2012, london.

i've been in europe for the past 2 months and will be here for at least another month, traveling around & taking photos, having wonderful encounters with people i've just met or known via the internet for years. the photo above is from a random handful of film i had developed after my 1st month. i will be making a photo book of the beautiful places and people i encounter along the way, and i'd like to get a gauge for how many people would be interested in it. assuming it won't be expensive, would you or someone you know be interested? let me know by sending me an email or commenting here! x

Exciting update!

A few updates on some exciting things I'm a part of:

-->Girlcore just released their first book through the wonderful POGO Books and I'm a part of it! Purchase it on the girlcore website, or through me. About Girlcore: "Girlcore is an all-female collective based in London. Originally founded on a desire to promote international female talent in creative industries - Girlcore's resume has grown far and beyond anything originally hoped for. Be it showcasing new DJ's alongside the likes of veterans such as Peaches and Annie Mac, to creating a website dedicated to promoting recent flair in the visualarts. All the work done by the group is a labour of love, each member of the collective having their own careers in the creative industries. This side-project is a way of celebrating the amazing work we encounter along the way."

-->I am really happy to be a part of Esquire Russia's new online gallery Dust and Scratches. The site descirbes the gallery as a unique online project that offers it visitors the opportunity to become owners of works of photography at the price of the poster. It features the works of hundreds of the world's leading photographers. (I used the google translate tool on my chrome browser to view the site in english). You can view a few of my works that are for sale on the site here.

-->Along with the opening of the new gallery, I am beyond incredibly honored and excited to be a part of Dust and Scratches exhibition (put together by Esquire Russia) at The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, February 14-19. Below is a bit about the exhibit:

"The project curated by Maxim Nikanorov, the art director of the Esquire magazine, will bring together the works of the leading world photographers of today. The majority of the authors in question have never been exhibited in Moscow as yet.

The title of the show evokes the eponymous web project — the Dust and Scratches gallery offers its visitors the opportunity to acquire the best samples of contemporary art photography at a poster price. Thanks to the collaboration of the Esquire magazine, hundreds of leading world photographers, including the winners of the World Press Photo Award and other prestigious competitions, agreed to show and sell their works at the Dust and Scratches gallery. Maxim Nikanorov has personally selected each piece among thousands of photos the gallery presents."

Beautiful Scenes From a $5 Disposable Camera

Check out here my newest Huffington Post photo story featuring photos from my trip to Rocky Mountain National Park! I wrote some words about the tragedy of my camera breaking the day I was looking forward to using it most, and how I still managed to find refuge in a $5 disposable camera instead.

jill smiling + tom waits - "back in the crowd"

last weekend i finally was able to drive down to san antonio to visit my sister and see her new place. i took this right before she turned out the lights. she was arranging the pillows the way she likes and as we were saying goodnight, i looked over and saw this. of course, it seemed too beautiful to not capture. it's one of my favorites that i've taken in quite a while.
below is a beautiful song, "back in the crowd," off of tom wait's new album "bad as me".

New photo story on Huffington Post

Huffington Post is launching a new photo blog section to their site called Exposure. I am incredibly excited & happy to be one of many great contributers. My first post, "Self Portrait", went up on friday, check it out! :)

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

this man is amazing and if you're a fan of his, you would know this blog is named after one of my favorite songs of his, take it with me. it's been a long time since he has had new work and i am beyond excited about his new record! (i really wish i was one of those guys in the car!) even if some of his music falls out of the type i usually would like, with him, i like it. there's something entirely different about a song when it's his, i think. anyways, i'm already finding myself constantly singing "you're the same kind of bad as me,"-- that is some good stuff!

Photo story/update

Thought I would give a little update & share a few things I've been a part of lately:

--A photo story of mine is up on Austin's first daily digital magazine: An intimate look at a summer day in Austin. Check it out here! :)

--Latest issue of CarneMag, a really cool visual arts magazine, and I'm among some amazingly talented company. Check it out here

--Latest issue of CZE Magazine, The White Issue

--I was really excited and honored to be featured in "You Are My Favorite," an exhibit featuring 30 women photographers from around the world (15 countries) put together by the lovely Franziska Ebert. Again, I'm among some really amazing company. The exhibit was held July 15 in Hamburg and I would have loved sooo much to have been there, but at least I was there in my spirit with my photos. The list and works of the 30 women featured are here, and the photos of mine featured are here.
