Micky Jones photographed scores of celebrities during the 1940's and 1950's in Vancouver, BC. Armed with his Speed-Graphic, a large format yet somewhat portable bellows camera, he and writer would set out to find stars of stage and screen. He carried a flash battery the size of a motorcycle battery which had enough juice for seven pops.
Many of the celebs came up from LA on Sunday to get ready for a weeklong stint at one of the local Vancouver nightclubs. Blue laws prevented liquor sales on Sunday so, when Jones met them for press shoots they were often stone-cold sober and earnest. With a few exceptions.Add a comment

In a Socratic dialogue written by Plato, Meno a representation of the unconnected consciousness as “I”, an individual, is reduced to aporia, or confusion. Within this analogue to chaos theory, the opening of transmutation allows for the genesis of ordered consciousness through the recollection of primordial existence, and all its eras thereafter, allowing the uninhibited consciousness to roam freely between parallels. In this state, “I” as self, becomes a spectator, witnessing the unfolding of all cosmic alchemy. Unplugged from the greaterconsciousness, the “I” as self, encounters its own demons in its journey to understand divinity.Add a comment
The focus of Noboo Kawaguchi's art is human beings. She takes people as her subject and delves deep into their emotions and state of mind. Noboo uses the full spectrum of human emotion to show the complexity and beauty of all. She combines notions of 'normal' versus 'strange' to bring forth a distinctive, expressive image. Loving New York focuses on the uniqueness of New York City. Although a native of Osaka, Noboo is fascinated with New York City's ability to not only tolerate many nationalities, but to use it's diversity as an asset in creating a culture where everyone is very different, yet all still consider themselves to be New Yorkers.Add a comment
Based out of Brooklyn, NY, Zack DeZon is a fashion and portrait photographer with a background and education in theatre performance. This mixture of disciplines imbues his shoots with a sensitivity and openness that helps make his portraits stand out not only for their style, but their honesty.
"I graduated from theatre school in 2009—with a nascent career in photography. The reasons I stopped pursuing acting are uninteresting, but in starting to shoot I discovered what had attracted me to the field in the first place: the actors.
"To me, actors are an incredible breed—expressive, empathetic, quick to say 'yes' to any new life experience, and, for reasons that vary from person to person, driven to compete in one of the most legendarily ruthless industries in the world.Add a comment
When he's not creating art with his famous Wiemeraners, William Wegman has other dog related interests. He designed a series of dog beds for Crypton that feature his drawings as fabric patterns. The beds are virtually water proof (technically water and moisture resistant) and resist stains and bacteria.
