PHOTOGALLERY: BRIAN BARNHART / 2019

Here is a roundup of some favorite photos from 2019.  They include shots from a visit home to Catty Woods; a trip to Orcas Island; a road trip to Tahoe, Utah, and Boise shooting new projects and helping with the build at Woodward Park City for Alpine Bike Parks; scenes from here in the PNW; and probably my favorite thing to shoot – Swampfest, which I had published in Victory Journal, Issue 17: “Outliers” (2019).  I also just released a zine called Groundbreaker commemorating the two Portland trail spots that were plowed. The original print run of 100 copies sold very quickly.  I’m currently feeling out doing a second print run for those who missed out.  Also hoping to build a new trail spot this year, and hence have some trails to shoot!

PHOTOGALLERY: HIKARU FUNYU / NIGHT MOVES

Thanks to Van Homan moving to Japan, I am now aware of photographer Hikaru Funyu. After poking around his Instagram, I felt he’d be a good candidate for a gallery here. Hikaru was down and submitted a bunch of rad pics for me to look through. As I was going through the photos he sent, I noticed he shot a lot at night time, and that seemed like a great theme to me.
