ON CALIFORNIA, PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE SUBLIME | A CONVERSATION WITH MIKAEL KENNEDY

Mikael_California_Cover

Photographer Mikael Kennedy meets me for drinks on the warmest day in the past six months. At first we said we’d grab coffee, but who are we kidding, it is a balmy 50 degrees in Soho and everyone is feeling down right Californian. So, as if on cue, we order what turns into four quartinos of … Continue reading

RANDOM SNAPSHOTS | NYFW A/W 2012

Toddsnyder-1-3

Things here at thesigother have been a bit quiet lately for two reasons: first, I’ve been blogging over at wearethemarket.com for the past two weeks, and second, New York Fashion Week is in full swing, which means I’ve (gladly) been spending less time in front of the computer and more time in front of beautiful … Continue reading

popup2011-3

I’ll admit, I went to the Pop Up Flea this weekend with full intentions of doing an overly ambitious, grandiose photo essay. Instead I showed up post-Sierra Nevada and a slice (courtesy Artichoke pizza), and ended up shooting the shit with some of my favorite American craftsmen, bloggers and people. This of course meant photos took a … Continue reading

PHOTOS | TWO WEEKS OF DETAILS

At the Tommy Hilfiger S/S 2012 show

Two weeks ago I bought my first real camera in about a decade. It’s a Pentax K20D, sold to me by one Mr. Liam Gaws. I am thrilled to have it.  I had been feeling ill equipped for too long – every day seeing things I wanted to capture for this very space, and with … Continue reading

INSPIRATION | HENRI CARTIER-BRESSON

 Richard Avedon, 1951, (print insitu at SFMOMA exhibit) While in San Francisco last week, I woke up on Saturday to a coldish, rainy morning. So I investigated my indoor options and decided on the San Francisco Modern Art Museum, satellite to the mothership, MOMA in NYC.  I trekked over, (under a ridiculously beautiful umbrella courtesy … Continue reading

COLLECTION | FREEMANS SPORTING CLUB F/W 2010

Yes, this outerwear centered collection promises to be quality –for when has Freemans ever done us wrong?– but it’s the look book that has left be at a loss for words.  Photographed by Tim Barber, of Urban Outfitters and Nike fame, it’s all satire meets stereotype and I love it. What better way to ring … Continue reading

I could not have had a better time last weekend at the Pop Up Flea, which inspired a few posts (which are still in the works). In the mean time, here are just a few drive-by shots I snapped while perusing the goods.  They’re adjusted using the Instagram app for iPhone. (If you’re on it, give me … Continue reading

It is the second Levi’s endavor of its kind, the first one being a print shop located in San Francisco. These ‘workshops’ … Continue reading

PHOTOS | AMERICA IN COLOR

A friend of mine recently sent me a link to this absolutely spectacular set of photos compiled by the Denver Post. The collection is from an exhibit by the library of congress.  “These Images”, they say, “are by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, [and] are some of the only color photographs … Continue reading
