Check out the trailer for the upcoming 1 hour documentary Canyons and Ice: the Last Run of Dick Griffith, produced and directed by my old friend Andy Trimlett. I was cinematographer on this project, and it was quite a shoot – from a helicopter shoot in Alaska to a week going through rapids on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, all with 89 year-old adventurer Dick Griffith, a true American original. I think this one is going to be pretty good.
I’m thrilled to announce that my film THANE OF EAST COUNTY is an official selection of the upcoming Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival in Lafayette, Louisiana! I’m also thrilled to have a great excuse to visit Cajun Country. This is going to be my first-ever visit to the American South – a travel blind spot I’ve long been hoping to rectify. You can’t be a music nerd and not get a little frisson when someone mentions Louisiana. Looking forward to good food, good tunes, and good films at the fest.
The last time I shot a roll of film was probably in 2001, when I backpacked around West Africa with my friend Andy. But now I’ve finally put aside my digital cameras and gone back to good ol’ Tri-X black and white film, using an old Canon TX camera that I had lying around, and also a medium-format Yashica Mat 124G I just acquired. I’m digging the results – more to follow!
Here are a few photos taken on strolls through San Diego’s North Park and Hillcrest neighborhoods. Taken with 120 Kodak Tri-X 400 on the Yashica Mat 124G.
