YES YOU SAY IT LIKE THAT.
i met Rachel Waniewski when we were both just bright-eyed newbies, hungry hungry hungry for things to shoot, places to shoot them at and people to tell us they were awesome. truth is, not much has changed except for the work that has evolved exponentially. I've had the pleasure of watching Rachel flourish into one of my favorite photographers.
she is not only good at composing a photo, relating her audience with her subject, harnessing light and painting with it as if she had a brush in her hand instead of a camera, but she is also a phenomenal story teller.
cant wait to see whats in store for her.

"Depth and a certain beauty are always present when it comes to art worth appreciating. But rarely is the art and the clear evolution of the artist himself so neatly packaged into a two volume book collection. Yet this is the case with Peter Beard, published and re-released after it's 2006 success by Tashcen, presently available for your devouring. You can certainly expect to get lost in Peter's Beard's world as he brilliantly docuented his life experience right down to every last detail using journal entries, layered collages, photography, and drawings inspired by his encounters" - MORE
..couldn't have said it better myself.
there is a film on the brink of existence, one that is beautifully captured, beautifully cut, and beautifully lived by the most amazing bunch of our time.
heard of Patagonia? hope so, if not the geographical location perhaps the outdoor clothing company? well THE MAN that started it all, climber, blacksmith, surfer, sustainable business man, and one rad grand-dad, Yvon Chouinard, did this all because of a dream that he lived. his desire to discover and conquer the wild in 1968 lead to the preservation of it for years and years to come.
a heart fell story that will make you wanna quit your day job and become a subject of the earth, has been revived.
by the masterful hands of director Chris Malloy, music director Emmett Malloy, and producer Tim Lynch (names you might already know as pillars of the surf community), a new crew of land & sea lovers alike, set out to make the journey to patagonia. what occurs along the way i can hardly wait to find out.
the sound track alone is enough to get me salivating. i feel like a little kid waiting for christmas.
enjoy friends enjoy.
ps. thanks jimmi-james for an amazing turn-on. (that sounds dirty, but is not intended to)
