The latest issue of the Acne Paper just came out titled ‘Manhattan’. As the title states, it’s an all New York issue, with interviews, photos and stories from a serious group of New York heavy hitters. My favorite article is the massive 15 page feature on the photographer Saul Letter… Seeing his images printed in large form on the beautiful matte paper is worth every penny.
I am not sure why an Autophoto with Vincent Perraud didn’t happen sooner, but here we are finally.
Hailing from France, Vince is no stranger to producing cool images. Everything from film to digital, Vince has a good eye for it. Just scroll through his Tumblr for proof. I’m a fan of Vince’s stuff for sure!

Here are a couple random photos of Mike Hoder from last week. Nothing better than a late summer day in New York with nothing to do but cruise around the city.
I keep my computer pretty organized most of the time and I try to keep my desktop free from any files… but sometimes things get a bit crazy and files start piling up… Right now I have a bunch of random stuff saved from random blogs and my desktop is a mess, so before I filed them away, I thought I do a random image dump… so keep reading to check out what’s on my desktop right now!
p.s. thanks to easy on the extras for a bunch of this stuff…
One of my favorite photographers, Peter Lindberg, who I’ve posted about before shot the most recent campaign for the clothing brand J.Lindeberg. I’ve never really been into J.Lindeberg, but these images look great and I pretty much love everything Peter Lindberg does. It also looks like they are going to be creating a book from the campaign, which is very cool… You can check out some of the image on this site as well as possibly one of the all time shakiest behind the scenes videos from the shoot of all time. Not sure how you can make something that shaky, but it’s fun to see Peter Lindberg in action and you can catch a glimpse of him with a Panasonic GF1 around his neck.
I have had “The Photography Book” for years, which if you haven’t seen it, is basically a big ass book filled with amazing photographs from hundreds of different photographers. 500 pages deep, each page features a different photographer which adds up to a serious amount of classic and historic photos. Since the book is so big, it’s always sat at the bottom one of my book stacks and I haven’t looked at it for years. The other day, I was re-organizing and brought it out. It’s been sitting on my desk for the past week and I’ve been digging through it again, making it through a few pages each day.
I’ve been re-discovering a lot of great photographers and somehow got suck on Ralph Gibson‘s work. After stoping on his page in the book, I went to his site and spend a log time looking through his impressive archive dating back to the early 60’s. Focussing on light and shadows, I’m in love with his high-contrast black and white images. Keep reading to check out a handfull of slects, and if you don’t own The Photography Book, it’s definitely worth the purchase!
Paul Robinson sent over a really dope disposed from the United X Eclat ‘High & Bound’ trip from LBC – San Francisco. The full edit, microsite including 2nd edit, and Albion article will be out August 1st, but keep reading to check out a first hand look on the trip through the eyes of a disposable camera. p.s. thanks to Paul Robinson for the dope collaging layouts!
I’m really stoked on this edit from Eclat documenting their trip to Shanghai. Great mix of riding, lifestyle and interview footage… and the clips are so good! They also have a great mini-site to go along with their trip featuring photos from Andrew White. Check the video above and site here.
