toe thaw

These photos are from last winter, the end of 2014 to the beginning of 2015, starting with a polar plunge.

 

I thought it was funny to compare Frankie’s expression in a polar plunge, which is expected, as compared to Kevin Hagen’s in the next photo.

 

 

 

Thawing toes. Vic also showed us it works super well to bury your toes in sand heated by the fire.

This red balloon was stuck to some floating ice in the east river and moving in slow circles in the current, it was amazing!

This is Z Behl, one of my favorite artists. Last year she made a large wooden deck of male nudie cards. She photographed me in the back seat of her 90’s Volvo and I got to be the 4 of diamonds, alongside more of my favorite artists, Duke Riley and Dustin Yellin.

 

 

That’s me in the house of cards.

 

 

I helped Danilo shoot a music video with Emily Pickell during the coldest windiest snow storm last year.

This it the Peak 2 Peak Gondola at Whistler, instead of going from the bottom of the mountain to the top, it goes from from one mountain top to another. Having only skied on the east coast, that tripped me out.

 

a visit to san francisco

In December 2014, I travelled to San Francisco to produce the 43 magazine issue 005 release photo show. These are some snapshots taken while there.

Wait, this is deceptive, we didn’t have to climb under a fence to get here, that was another place with pretty meh views.

fall bottom winter top

October 2014, it was warm and sunny enough to swim, but then we had a great idea to hike up a mountain and fast forward ourselves into a flurrying winter camp situation, with way too many people huddling over a small fire we could barely keep going. Somehow a curry stew was cooked from scratch, a dance party became necessary for survival, and we managed to stay beyond fully clothed.
