Having learned that David Grant enjoys shooting photos from his recent DIG interview, I decided to hit him up and see if he would be down to contribute an Autophoto. Being a fan of riders who also shoot, I was psyched to know he was down.
Click below to check out David Grant’s Autophoto. All the photos were taken on Canon or Minolta 35mm cameras.
Seen a post of Lucia Griggi’s underwater surf photos over at Huh Magazine and thought they were rad enough to share. They surely got me excited for Chicago summer and shooting with my underwater film camera. Although, the water in Lake Michigan isn’t quite as clear as this.
Check out some more of her little interview and images here.
We’re happy to announce that Chicago based photographer & rider Timothy Burkhart will be joining us here at Defgrip.
We happened to come in contact with Timothy one day, and one thing lead to another. We found that we had similar interests and bringing him on board worked out naturally. Timothy has been a fan of the site for some time, has a BFA in photography/studio art, is currently handling photo duties for The Bakery and carries too many cameras. He knows what we’re about and we look forward to having his posts in the mix.
Really blown away by the work of Michael Wolf. Make sure to spend a lot of time on his website because he has so many incredible photo series like this one or this one or this… Just check it all out. Thanks to Jon Fischer for the link and keep reading to check out some more of Michael Wolf’s work.
I’ve was really excited to discover Lee Friedlander’s work last week. Not sure how, but up until I was reading an Avedon book the other day I was completely unaware of his work. I’m really digging his photos from inside his car and the mannequin/reflection series. Check out a bunch of his work after the jump.
I’m convinced that the world is a better place because we have Jeff Z photos. That’s pretty much some sort of scientifically proven fact and shit. With that said, Jeff has re-launched his site with tons of stuff to look at. Eyeball the site HERE.
Vivian Maier was a nanny by day and a street photographer by night. This mysterious lady’s biography gets unveiled after her death. The story is truly incredible; I cannot wait for the release of this film. Check out the trailer for it for now.
Here’s the second part to my 2012 gallery… I posted a bunch of my iPhone photos last month and this is the follow up with all of my other photos that I shot through out the year. Just a bunch of random photos from my various adventures through out 2012. Thanks so much for all the positive feedback on my iPhone gallery and I hope you enjoy these photos!
Tom Kirkby from Breaks sent over some photos from The Imprint Project. Check them out after the jump and click here for a video from the opening. For more info about the project our post about it here. If you live in London, you can check out the show at the Exposure gallery until the end of February.
Jason Stankiewicz ( aka knowtomorrow ) is one of my favorites that I follow on Instagram, so I figured he would be a good person to take over the P.O.T.D. on the sidebar for a month. Jason is an East Coaster and shoots anything to do with city life along with other treats mixed in ( assuming when he escapes the city ).
Check out his site HERE, follow him on Instagram and keep an eye on the sidebar to the right.
Around the 1:16 mark on this Dan Lacey edit, you can see photographer George Marshall running around just after some sort of disturbance in Tel Aviv. Scary shit indeed. George, Dan, Bruno Hoffmann and Rich Forne were all in town working on Dan’s edit and Albion interview. On George’s recent visit to Austin, I was able to point out that I noticed him running around during this intro, and we proceeded to talk about how wild it was during this project.
Anyway, George has posted a nice overspill gallery from this trip on the Albion site. Check it HERE.
“This double exposure project allows us to step back from having full control of the image making process and trust in one another while allowing coincidences to happen naturally on film. Stephanie exposes a full roll of 35mm film of only “people,” and Timothy reloads the film again into the same camera, to imprint only “places” and locations to the same roll. These images are all the end result of our ongoing series and are unedited negatives straight from the camera.”

I had randomly come across Alex Valentino’s New York gallery on The Diggest and was really into it. I always get stoked when I unexpectedly find out that certain people are into shooting, so I did what I do best and asked him to contribute to the ‘grip and he came through.
Click below to check out an assortment of some of his favorite pics from 2012.
2012 was a great year for me. I got to travel all over the world, work on some great projects and spent my time with some amazing people. I was going through all my photos to put a gallery together, but ended up having too many for one gallery, so I split them up into two. The first one is all my iPhone photos. I always try to shoot as much as I can on regular cameras, but can never put my phone down and probably shoot twice as many photos on my phone as I do any other camera. I posted a lot of these on my Instagram and Tumblr, but it’s fun to look at them all together in one gallery. Keep reading to check out my iPhone photos and check back for my second gallery sometime this week!
2012 was interesting. I moved from Long Beach to Austin, and for whatever reason ended up shooting way less “real” photos than I did in yearspast. I still carried a camera around a bunch and accumulated some goodies, but ended up with a lot less this year. For real, I’m blaming Instagram (in a good way). No matter the medium, we still have images. This collection of photos is a mix of camera and iPhone pics that I took throughout 2012. Enjoy!
