It’s been a crazy yet amazing few weeks. Learning and hearing first hand stories w/ Dallas Austin, watching LA band Dawes soundcheck prior to their performance on MBE, Q&A w/ Bomba Estereo at Red Bull, hosting How To Dress Well at Make Music Pasadena and wrapping things up w/ a Dodger game. Wheew! Big thanks to the kiddos at Global Education Academy for allowing me to hang this morning and talk about my “career”.


Leo has always intrigued me. From his early role in Kids to his rise in the NYC art and literary scene, he is that kid that just is doing what he loves and accepts it. Simple yet full of ideas which he expresses in his work.  I’m trying to find this book but I came across this great interview promoting his new book entitled “Born Dead“.

He’s been labeled a visionary, masterful director, writer, photographer, pervert, artist etc etc. I have always respect this man. Sometimes I take pictures around the city and catch shots Im not sure I should share out of fear of criticism or being labeled insensitive. But looking at his photo’s has only pushed me to share those intimate shots because of Larry’s perspective that this is reality. This is what’s really going on. To hide it is to deny it. His photo book Tulsa is a must see documenting drug use, junkies and dealers.  I once bumped into him at the Citibank in Santa Monica and tried to play it cool. This popped up online and I wanted to share it. Wonderfully shot too!
