Legs, Malibu. Print for City Workshop, Maplewood, NJ.
Our hearts go out to everyone managing their relationship with the global pandemic that we are experiencing. We wanted to do what little we can as small independent business owners to help other local small independent business owners. We will be putting up a different photograph of ours every day where all the proceeds from the sales of those prints will go directly to the local business owners. Did I just make that sound more difficult than it is?.
We are selling prints, signed, in multiple sizes. We will be giving all the money to the local business chosen. We want to help out our neighbors and we thought this might be fun to try and you'll be helping out a small business AND getting something nice to hang on your wall! There, that sounded better.
This shot was taken for a fashion story for Monster Children Magazine. The story was inspired by R.E.M.'s Nightswimming and we photographed it at our good friend and make-up art Sandy Ganzer's father's house deep in the hoills of Malibu, CA. Her father is Jim "Z" Ganzer, the founder and creator of the legendary Jimmy'Z brand. The first article of clothing I ever made a point to seek out. The house had very minimal electricity so we couldnt use photo lights, just the lights from the pool and at one point the female model fell and cut her foot. The reason her foot is bandaged and lifted like that (which to me really makes the photo).
All proceeds of this one will help our new friends Roger and Josefina who recently moved their clothing store City Workshop (@cityworkshopmsc) to Baker Street in the Village of Maplewood. They are a couple who own and run this store together which really struck a chord with us since we know all too well what its like to share a company and have that be our one income. Check out the online store in the meantime and make it a point to visit the brick and mortar when they are open again. They will make you feel like old friends as they outfit you with some incredible Made in the US clothes.
