SS POSTER CLUB GUEST ARTIST - NICK JOSEPH

We’re about to introduce our first Guest Artist on the Poster Club and I felt it only right to kick things of with photographer and all around cool guy, Nick Joseph. After a few months of going back and fourth via text and emails, we finally locked in, what I feel to be a great addition to the SSPC. Stay tuned for more info and in the mean time, be sure to check out Nick’s work and his eye for capturing interesting things that most pass by.

THE WILD WEST

Bella and Paige came by to shoot in our all-time favorite Marlboro® shirts, The Wild West collection, aka, the Marlboro Man. These shirts represent the pinnacle of the Philip Morris era when tobacco was king. When people smoked inside, drank like everyday was new years and created classic shit that has lived long after the failed livers and charred lungs. So what’s our fascination with Marlboro? It ultimately has nothing to do with smoking but more so about a period in time when people took risks. People lived outside of the box and were free. There were no mobile devices, which means there was no instant judgment and rather then creating for others, people used their individualism to create for themselves.

RIP REN HANG

I remember stumbling upon Ren Hang’s Tumblr and website years ago and thinking, fuck, this person is making photographs that make me question things, not only simple pleasures of my surroundings but perhaps also the human form and it’s boundaries. The images resinated with me because it reminded me of old Terry and the type of candid film work that I’m drawn to. Fast forward to the last couple of years and you can’t escape the fever of Ren’s work throughout the world. He has singlehandedly captured some of the more relatable (in my eyes) campaigns recently. Effortless, no bullshit and most importantly, captured in way that reminds us of our existence and how insignificant outside views truly are. He worked in a way that provided the viewer a small window into his thoughts while living under such confined circumstances, not only in the physical form, but also mentally. We lost an amazing talent today. I truly only pay attention to a handful of photographers and he was one of them.

1:43am

This is my life right now, organized chaos as I edit and get all of the product shots ready for Friday. In all reality, I wish I was in bed, getting my back scratched and watching Abstract for the second time. By the way, if you haven’t watched this Netflix original series yet, do it!.
