We love seeing Giant Artists‘ images out in the world – like this New York Times spread featuring a Shinola ad with an array of product & people images shot by yours truly, David Black! It’s a trifecta of quality!
For your viewing & listening pleasure, Emily Shur recently photographed a very “manly” version of Neko Case for her new single, appropriately called Man. Amazing hair, make-up, and styling by Terri Walker, Sandy Ganzer, and Djuna Bel respectively. And the horse, well, he came with his own cigarette. Enjoy!
We’re very excited to announce a new addition to the Giant Artists’ family – João Canziani! Based in Brooklyn by way of Los Angeles, Vancouver, and originally Lima, Peru – João found the perfect amalgam of art and engineering when he inherited his father’s old Pentax as a teenager. After completing a degree in Psychology in Canada, he studied photography at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. It was his intensely personal images he shot in Lima that first attracted magazines such as the Fader and Travel & Leisure to his work, earning him recognition as one of PDN’s 30 in 2005. Over the years he’s developed a real cinema verite eye that appreciates style cues, details, and composition to create images that make an impact. Whether it’s photographing people in their work place, on the sports field, or traveling around the world, João excels at capturing intimate and authentic moments that always tell a story. Here’s to the next chapter together! Welcome, João! (pronounced Jo-wow!)
This happened today. It’s a sneak peek at what’s to come on Monday! Stay tuned…
Enjoy the weekend!! x
The French magazine, Obsession, recently asked David Black to travel up to the Santa Barbara area to photograph the famous author, T.C. Boyle, in his home. The home which he’s lived in for 20 years, isn’t just any home – it happens to be the first California house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Talk about an interesting afternoon!
Fridays call for a Dose of Dallas! Enjoy the weekend!!
Apparently there’s a lot of GIANT love for Fader this week – this time with Weird Days! They directed KOOL A.D.’s new video for “Jaleel White” which features a tightly cropped time-lapse portrait of Victor Vazquez’ face. Vazquez smokes a blunt and waggles his tongue while the song – named for the actor that played Urkel and taken from February’s 19 mixtape - plays in the background. Check.it.out!!
