Experimental Vintage

Want to know one of the things I’ve been up to since I’ve been in Portland?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been working with Anna of @experimentalvintage and photographing this months curated vintage rug collection!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can we talk about a dream job?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hanging out in the beautiful space of @homebodyportland, taking photos of pretty old things, surrounded by plants and inspiring bad-ass women who run their own businesses?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yea. I’m in my element.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s such an honor to work for and with people I admire so wholeheartedly.

Folkling Vintage | The California Coast

Folkling Vintage | The California Coast

I have been in California for part of August, and while there I picked up a few vintage finds for folkling.

Shooting these pieces while driving up the Pacific Coast Highway was such a fun artistic endeavor for me.

It is combining many of my loves, photography, vintage, travel, all into one.

I appreciate all of you who’ve supported Folkling over the last two years of its existence. It’s a venture that I get so much enjoyment out of and not only something I preach, but practice.
I truly believe in the sustainability and ethical consciousness in buying secondhand first and appreciating that which already exists in the world.
Additionally, you are fueling my life on The Road in more ways than one, and that’s a dream for which I cannot thank you enough.

If you are interested in any of these pieces, shoot me a direct message through the Folkling instagram.
Thank you to everyone who sees value in shopping slow.

Artists In Film | Anna of Experimental Vintage in Portland Oregon

Artists In Film | Anna of Experimental Vintage in Portland Oregon

for quite some time now i've been holding this idea of doing film photo essays on various artists i love and admire and sharing them here on the journal. 

film is a format of photography that i increasingly fall in love with as the years go by.
indeed, i often prefer it over its digital counterpart. while i shoot digitally for work most of the time, there is a mystical, etherial and nostalgic way about film that just can't ever quite be replicated with digital images. 
for these reasons, as well as the often imperfect and one-time-shot aspects of the medium, i have come to treasure my film photos in a way i'm not sure i'll ever feel about any other kind of photo.

yesterday i re-shared this post of photos from Anna's home in Portland Oregon, but it wasn't until recently that i developed the remaining rolls from this trip. so in addition to her lovely home, here you can see some vignettes from her studio space as well.

Life In The Country

“If I could have made the change sooner I daresay I should never have given a thought to the literary delights of Paris or London; for life in the country is the only state which has always completely satisfied me, and I had never been allowed to gratify it, even for a few weeks at a time. Now I was to know the joys of six or seven months a year among fields and woods of my own, and the childish ecstasy of that first spring outing at Mamaroneck swept away all restlessness in the deep joy of communion with the earth.” 

―  Edith Wharton
