Proud to present….

Here at Studio Nemo we are proud, proud, proud to present the work we’ve been doing over the summer months. I travelled with an amazing crew of Nemo, Nike and Selby folks to NYC, New Jersey, Duluth, Tahiti, Florida and Georgia to capture this year’s Nike 6.0 apparel campaign on film. Todd Selby has incredible style and was great at getting Nike 6.0’s athletes to take us deeper into their everyday lives. Thank you to everyone who was involved. Check out The Selby and his post about the shoots. It’s amazing- Videos, interviews and photos from all the athletes.

Martha Cooper’s Tag Town

Tag Town, is a new book of photos from photographer Martha Cooper. Published by Dokument Forlag, this is the first book to showcase early tags in their context. It’s a lesson in street art, containing early photos of tags dating back to the 1960s. Back in the ’80s, Cooper shot NYC’s infant tagging graffiti scene that included only a handful of artists. This was the absolute beginning of what you call street art today and Cooper recorded it tirelessly. She did this out of curiousness, pure interest and love. She thought this was a movement of the minute. She had no idea that her lens was capturing the very beginning of one the greatest art movements of our time.
Take a gander, she’s got a ton of cool shit to say.

For more of her interview and to check out some of her pictures see the Fecal Face blog.


Let Them Eat Crack! Banksy round 2

My friend Mikey H. in NYC just Ichatted me saying he just saw the Banksy show mentioned below (Which he said was rad.). He asked me if I have seen photos for the giant rat pieces Banksy did in Soho, they’re all legal too since they are commissioned pieces. Simply put, amazing stuff. Click on for more!

Photo cred: Mikey’s friends Iphone! (more…)


Banksy new work

When I was in NY last, I picked up a book for TG on Banksy’s art. His street art is really amazing, but this newest venture may take the cake. It’s so bizarre!!! The “Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill” is a tiny storefront that opened without notice or fanfare in NY. It has drawn confused crowed to its “animals” displays such as chicken mcnuggets, drinking from a communal bbq sauce, hot dogs under heat lamps in aquariums, and a leopard in a tree. Read more about it at the Wooster Collective or check out the photos and video below…


More NYC… best graffiti I saw

Here is some rad graffiti and wheat pasting art from NYC.


LEO KESTING GALLERY NYC

Another little tidbit from nyc…

Here are some pics from the Leo Kesting Gallery. Ironically, my favorite gallery show I visited in NYC happened to be work from the lovely and talented Jonny Fenix (living right here in portland, or). The rocking gun is amazing! And Jon Benet Ramsey, Jesus riding a bronco, the purple tiger!!!! I love it all. I hope you all enjoy these pics. 


Just a taste…

I’ve been off traveling for work and pleasure, so I’ve been neglecting my blog duties, but Kari, Todd, Alex and Trevor have done a STELLAR job of posting interesting stuff in my absence (and when I’m here, as well). I have so much to write about, I don’t know where to start. 

I’ve been in NYC for the Le Book Connections event. I’ve got lots of photographers and agencies to rant about… but I’ll post in bits to keep you interested. I’ve also got great news to come on NY gallery shows, the lovely Dona and NYC street art. 

Before heading to NY, I shot up north to Connecticut  to visit my lovely Gram. Here’s me and Gram (obviously on an earlier trip, but we found some great old photos that I couldn’t pass up sharing). Highlight of the Grandma trip was definitely water aerobics at the retirement community! 

 

 


Another photo of the day

It was hard to choose just one image from NYC based photographer “Boogie” for this post. Every image on his site tells such a story about the subjects day to day life, it truly is fascinating. Click here to see more.
