The Encounter Collection

EncounterDefgrip

Anyone who has seen this video about our buddy Stephen Kenn might share my excitement about The Encounter Collection, Stephen’s new line of bags which are sourced, and made, locally in Los Angeles.

Stephen’s top notch guy who embodies my favorite L.P. Jacks philosophy, loves what he does, and does it right. Find him at @StephenKenn, and go here to see the collection.

The Hundreds x The Shadow Conspiracy

Shadow Conspiracy and The Hundreds are collaborating to build a custom bike from the ground up for a limited release. This stop motion video got me super psyched and was done so damn well!

Here we go again… A bunch of random stuff that has caught my eye over the past few weeks. A bit more abstract this time, but I've been on a weird digital grime/distress kick lately. I guess it's because I've been working on some more abstract editing recently. Don't worry though, if you make it to the end there some of the usual interiors and car photos. Enjoy!

Everybody Street Trailer

This new documentary on street photography in NYC looks to be one not to miss. Some great great artists in here….and I can’t wait to hear their stories and viewpoints on what street photography means to them.

“It’s like it’s from another planet”

Another great video from Petrolicious, this time on the legendary Lancia Stratos. I would love to see one of the new Lancia’s in person one day…they look amazing as well!

The Photographer Series: Jonathan Mehring

The Photographer Series: Jonathan Mehring from Andrew Norton on Vimeo.

Andrew Norton has an amazing project called The Photographer Series which is a nice look into some of the best photographers in skateboarding and the stories behind some amazing photos. This one on Jonathan Mehring definitely reminded me that I need to get my ass out on the road for some exploration.

Here is a rad story on Dieter Rams that Need Supply emailed me last week.

Photo came from here.
