Through It All Things Fall

I had an unfinished version of this composite posted a while back. But here is the final beast in its completed state.

The Blue Of Where You Are Not

Holy crap! New work!!

Arctic Winter Sky

Came across this watercolor-esque photo while working on some new images for my graduate school portfolio. Yes, I am actually finally working on images I made last February in Iceland.

Clashing Islands

Baring the overpriced skyr yogurt I buy at Whole Food, Iceland rarely comes to me...
An exception to the rule...

My Photo in Print!

First Roll of Black and White: Circa 1996

Of course it was a picture of my childhood dog, the love of my life, Digby.

Lóa Hlín Hjálmtýsdóttir

This is one talented lady who plays in a whole lotta bands, including FM Belfast, Prins Póló and Mum. I wouldn't be surprised if Lóa performs in others, I simply can't keep track. Not to discredit any of the other fantastic women I was fortunate enough to photograph, but Lóa was the most outspoken in agreeing with me on the importance of highlighting the women of the festival. She commented that while women aren't not underrepresented in the music scene, it still felt to her as if they were. In our conversation she also explained that the small park I photographed her in used to be a cemetery. We only spent 10 minutes together, but Lóa struck me as woman with whom I share certain affinities: an appreciation for the past and a desire to continue to improve what lays ahead.

Women Are Heros

The best thing I've seen in a while:

Pascal Pinon

While at Airwaves I created a small portfolio of portraits of the ladies of Airwaves. To start off the series, here is Pascal Pinon. These young women (sisters) are wonderful and they're not even 18!!!

Sexy Men of the Grapevine Team

Have to drum scan these first two images... expired and underexposed film.. sigh..
Haukur's my man in plaid and glasses... he's the brilliant editor in chief of the Grapevine. He kept us in check and insisted that we have as much fun as possible. Demanding guy...

What A Gal Needs To Shoot Airwaves

Only things missing from this image are a huge bottle of Vitamin C, those chocolate covered raisins I compulsively eat only in Iceland, and a can of Viking.

And this is apparently what you don't need:

Bombay Bicycle Club

These guys were pretty f***ing awesome.. saw them do an acoustic (more-or-less) set at a hostel and perhaps I liked that more.. check 'em out. There was a rumor floating around the festival that they were royalty (?) Oh those Brits.

Unicorn Rock

New favorite piece of public art... outside of an elementary school in Reykjavik. These would have delighted me with horror as a child.

Article With A Picture

And I'm Back...

As if I wasn't already feeling enough like Annie Leibovitz for Rolling Stone, I was seated in the rockstar section of the airplane last night. I had to control myself from giggling when I saw who I was seated next to. Members from bands I'd spent the previous four nights running around to see and photograph surrounded me with their instruments and hangovers. And now real life resumes.. But there are many more photos to post so at least I can prolong the incredible experience a bit more.

This is Diamond Rings. Start listening to him. His pretty feminine face is humorously incongruous with his dry sense of humor and deep voice. We checked in at the airport together. I think he caught me staring.

I Met Bjork And Matthew Barney.. NBD (!!!!!!!)

This is what happens when you hang out with Angel Deradoorian... you know. I had to suppress the tremendous urge, inspired by several beers, to run up to her and say hi, you live in Brooklyn right by my best friend Sara, I live in Brooklyn too. Instead I managed to play it cool and do my job, taking photos...but now I can say I've met Bjork in Iceland, which is naturally on my list of things to do before I die. Its doubtful that it was a special moment for her, but its one I'll remember hopefully as long as I remember who she is.

Sin Fang

One of my favs just warming up.. nbd.

Its 4am... Edit Time

Its 4am... Haukur's writing... I'm editing... My ears are ringing. I photographed a band called Swords of Chaos. Nuff said. Night one Airwaves, check!

Góðan daginn from Iceland!

Don't let the picture fool you, it's a gray day in Iceland and I probably won't see the until next week.. But the lights will be bright enough tonight when Iceland Airwaves commences!

Back at Julia and Haukurs!
