Insight's newest campaign journeys across the glob, deep into the minds of creativity, past the desolate plains, beneath the ocean, through the jungle and out the other side.  the legacy of which will become known forever more as DOPAMINE.
Insight's surf team took the life aquatic, creating human art as they rode the waves amongst beatnik graveyards, uba scuba canoes and motor-cycle riding femme fatales.  Not one to cut corners on creativity, Insight combined an array of underwater visual spectacles with the amazing skill of their surf team and the photographic talents of Dustin Humphrey.
Meanwhile the skate team got all Gilligan's Island as they wrestled crocodiles, skated a golden elvis and contemplated life in paradise.  What initially sounded like a vacation, quickly turned into the over ambitious  project of recreating famous skate spots in the most surreal of settings.  The insight team skated custom made spots on beaches, over rice fields and through the jungle all captured by photographer 
Mr. John Bradford.

often, one thing leads to another leads to another...  like when i'm laying in bed trying to fall asleep and catch myself in mid-thought not knowing where it came from or what brought me there...  or like how i came across the delightful patterns of Sewden's own Elisabeth Dunker.      

The Selby

the selby is photoblog created photographer todd selby and it makes me so excited that i can barely contain myself!  i am always looking for images that represent "real" living spaces and aesthetics that don't call for setting things up perfectly, all tidy like.

francesca tallone : photographer

: giving up the ghost :

i first met francesca when we were in photography school together in san francisco...  we quickly joined forces creating a photo collaboration project named 'fiick'.  although short-lived, i would give anything to time travel back to when we spent countless hours at the marshall project gallery...  
ah, the good old days.

francesca is now brooklyn based and kicking ass...  she shoots a wide array of vintage cameras including a 110 spy camera, a 126 instamatic, a brownie hawkeye,  and a diana.  i am amazed how she consistently pulls you into her images and leaves you hanging somewhere between a dream and a distant memory.  oh, and did i mention that she was named one of surface magazine's 2006 avant-guardians?  
check out her site, pattern clash.
