we are exhausted/we are exhilarated

I went to LOOK3 in Charlottesville this past weekend and had the best time. It was awesome to be around so many similarly driven, intensely creative people and chilling, looking at inspiring work, talking about projects and drinking so much beer. I brought my 5d and a 50mm.

I don’t start at the Valley News until July but I’m feeling super great these days and looking forward to getting there and beginning an incredible six months. I’m shooting much looser – a lot of these are from the hip – and less of the constrained crap I was pulling before. I had a lot of great conversations with people this weekend, but ultimately I think the most fruitful ones happened on the porch of the house I rented with 10 like-minded fools.

Fuck it. Do what you love. The rest will fall into place.
See you in New Hampshire.

ashley gilbertson, talking about bedrooms of the fallen. super moving. it’s an incredible feeling to realize that if we care about or even are just interested in something, we can do something about it. who else has that luxury?

the best part of this photo is not david alan harvey in the foreground but rather johnny, the greatest cab driver in america. what’s that? no, bro. this sublime tape can’t go any louder.
