The Harrison Boyce Alternative

2014_06_10_harrisonBoyce_1600

Alternative has teamed up with Defgip’s very own Harrison Boyce to create a capsule of Organic Pima Cotton T-shirts featuring Harrison’s photography.

If you’re in NYC this Thursday 6/19, come by the shop and have a drink with us to celebrate, and see some more of Harrison’s work.

If you’re elsewhere in the world, check this conversation with Harrison about the capsule.

New York In The 80′s

Went back in time looking through this “New York in the 80′s” photoset on Steven Siegel’s Flickr. There’s currently 386 photos from when NYC was a totally different place than it is now. The photo above was titled “Hole in Manhattan Bridge Walkway”. Crazy.

If you want to go deeper, he’s got a lot more sets to get lost in.

Not since the elamenop.com days have I actually sat down and spent a lot of time putting a personal portfolio site together. I’ve always just whipped something together out of necessity, but this latest rendition of my portfolio changes that. The site is broken up into three sections, film/photo/stories… The film section is pretty similar to my last site, but I’m super excited about the photos and stories section. I’ve been shooting photos forever, but have never actually put a real portfolio together. It has been a lot of fun digging through my archives and organizing all my work into specific galleries. The stories section is where I’ll be posting all my personal work from now on. I’m always doing random projects on my own and am looking forward to having a home for them.

Scrapbook 2013 – Harrison Boyce

harrison_boyce_photography_main

It’s crazy that 2013 is already behind us and as the year comes to an end I always have fun looking back at my photos over the past twelve months. I was able to do some pretty incredible stuff over the past year and see some pretty incredible places and I can’t wait to see where this year takes me. To kick 2014 off I put together a collection of photos from last year shot on various cameras. I really felt like I spent a lot of time thinking about my photography, trying to figure out what type of photographer I am and hopefully that translated into my work. Out of everything I did, I still enjoy roaming around the streets on my own with my point and shoot snapping photos of all the random stuff that catches my eye.
