over the years i’ve gotten to see some pretty nifty stuff. one of the benefits of being there to photograph things behind the scene is that…well it’s that you get to see all the normally unseen stuff behind the scenes. this seems like an obvious point but the truth is, it’s no small thing.
from watching kool herc roll a blunt while singing lady gaga at diamond head to a 10-minute private set from dj z-trip while soundchecking to having jake shimabukuro do an impromptu cover of the family guy theme song on a shoot to watching NYC-based artist/designer craig costello a.k.a. krink spray massive pieces for a show at loft in space…it’s easy to lose perspective and forget just how cool it is to get to see all this stuff from the perspective i find myself in on a daily basis. this little shoot was no different…i’ve got a few images here, and a few ended up on a beastly hype website you may have heard of before.
speaking of behind-the-scenes, here’s a few shots of krink finishing up his last set of pieces for his recent show at loft in space. it was a visually impressive show and in addition to being an all-around nice guy, craig’s attention to detail and dedication to his craft was totally super motivating/inspirational. enjoy.
