Are you ready for this prom wedding that I shot last August?! My goodness, I had so much fun photographing this party. I always appreciate when people think “outside the box” and really, your wedding should be anything and everything you want it to be. With Christy and Stuart, they did just exactly that. I believe first and foremost that you make the rules of the party, and I’ll be as happy as a clam to photograph exactly how it went down. Promise.
We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of these two, and since this elopement has always been a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it on the blog today. Cindy & Eric already had an upcoming wedding planned in the mid-west, where they were also relocating for Eric’s new job. But Joshua Tree was too special to them and they wanted to say good-bye their own way, so they decided to elope there on the down-low. It was just the two of them, an officiant, and me as their witness and photographer.
“I have the kind of imagination that hears. I think of it as radio imagination.”
– Octavia E. Butler
I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Radio Imagination Launch Party last February for Clockshop at their headquarters at elysian. Clockshop’s Radio Imagination is a series of programs and artist commissions exploring the legacy of Octavia E. Butler.
I’m excited to share some photographs I shot for Clockshop‘s One Body of Water event last month. One Body of Water was a new performance by artist Carolina Caycedo, developed in response to the Bowtie Parcel. One Body of Water intertwines the stories of three contested rivers of the Americas: the Magdalena (Colombia), Yaqui (Mexico), and Elwha (Washington, US) rivers. Resonating with indigenous oral traditions, Caycedo and her collaborators embody the voice of the rivers around a fire, inviting us to shift the way we think about nature, and how we interact with non-human bodies. The performance began with a blessing by the Gabrielino Tongva Tribe.
