We’re very proud to announce that we’ve formed a partnership with VSCO, the makers of VSCO Film and, of course, VSCOcam — the best (in our opinion) photo-editing app for smartphones. Seriously, we’ve been huge fans of theirs for years and it’s such an honour to call them an official partner.
What this means is that we’ve got some beautiful photos in Lagom #1 selected by the VSCO Journal team (see above for a sneak peek), and in turn some select Lagom content will be appearing on the VSCO Journal.
There are several other partnerships we’ve yet to announce, so watch this space. And huge thanks to VSCO for believing in what we do!
I was recently asked by the great folk at ONA to shoot some photographs of my friend Dan and his beautiful Brixton bag… Loads of cameras, the best camera bags around, and a good friend - a pretty great shoot day!
HTC gave me a new HTC One Mini to play with and asked if I could put my own spin on the selfie — so I headed to Carnaby St yesterday and had a quick play at the expense of celebrities, especially a few with a penchant for selfies ;)
Goddamn was I excited to interview Moby. Read up on other interviews he’d done about his photography, listened to a few podcasts he visited, checked out his new album, read the New York Times article that talked about his house…I went deep. Which was fitting, as Moby himself goes deep when it comes to photography. He gives it the kind of thought I am both deeply respect and am more than a little in awe of.
Because c’mon, we expect artists to have a single specialty. We expect their dalliances in other art forms to clearly mark them as dilettantes. And yet here’s Moby, giving as much energy and consideration to photography as he does to music, producing a stunning body of work that instantly dispels any thoughts that he’s merely slumming it as a photographer. The following interview only hammers home that idea.
This is a Beaulieu 4008 ZM 8mm film camera. I just saw someone selling one of these at an online auction, and I’m tempted to bid on it because how is this not the coolest film camera you’ve ever seen? Even if I’d never be able to shoot any 8mm film, it’s got to be handy to own it in case of alien invasion. You just know there’s gotta be a ray-gun setting on there somewhere.
