Thao Nguyen article in Paper magazine

Thao Nguyen photographed for Paper magazine. She was so chill and easy to work with, made this shoot so easy. Even though there wasn’t much time I got a bunch of good material. She’s on tour right now with her band The Get Down Stay Down – go see her. Here are a few outtakes…

I’m excited to be part of the prestigious Hasselblad “Masters on Tour” exhibition this year which is traveling around the globe right now. Images from my PreOccupied series were selected for the Fine Art category and one photo of each contestant will be on display. There are 10 Masters categories with 10 portfolios selected for each and a jury will decide the final winners at the end of the year. All final contestants are showcased on their website as well .
The show just finished up in Hong Kong and is currently on display in Copenhagen at Dask Gallery through September 12th. After that it will travel to Milk Studios in New York during PhotoPlus Expo in October and London in December.

The same series also received an honorable mention at the Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3) and the International Photo Awards. IPA selected a portrait of Marlis Tanner as well, which is an outtake of a shoot I did for Swiss publication Das Magazin. It’s nice to get some recognition for my work in Europe and I’m excited about a few stories I’ve been working on for magazines over there. I’ll post new material in the news section once it’s published.

Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richter's Lesende, 1994 mit Betrachterin, 2008

Taken at the SFMOMA. There’s a great story in the Guardian about Richter’s paintings. Here’s a quote:
“I consider belief of every kind, from astrology to every elevated religion and all great ideologies, to be superfluous and mortally dangerous,” Richter has said. “We no longer need such things. We ought to work out different strategies against misery and injustice, war and catastrophes.”
Another one out of his book “Portraits” published by Hatje Cantz:
“I don’t think the painter need either see or know his sitter. A portrait must not express anything of the sitters ‘soul,’ essence or character. Nor must a painter ‘see’ the sitter in any specific, personal way.”

Jonas Hiller, Anaheim ducks goalie for Das Magazin in Switzerland. What was supposed to be a straight-up editorial portrait turned into a two day shoot chasing down my subject in Southern California. On the fly it turned into a more journalistic story and luckily the publication gave the images some room. You can read the whole story in my native tongue online.
