About Me

aka swank106

i don't make what i got with the best...
it's the other way around.

co-captain of the Visual-Noise two-square team.

self-taught, untrained, without a piece of paper that apparently proves one's worth. i do, however, have a third degree black belt in kung photo. i practice the ghetto style technique.
i'm of the belief that sarcasm is virtuous and that one shouldn't take one's self so fuckin' serious.
kinda sick of the whole art school thing. kinda sick of the whole Maxim thing. fuck LaChappelle, i'll take Bourdin any day. i'm not trying to be edgy, i'm not trying to be artsy. i'm just doing what i like. i'm not a professional, i never claimed to be. hell, i'm not even a photographer. i just take pictures.

former resident of San Jose, now in San Francisco. always looking for like minds to collab with.

i want to make music that sounds like a Wong Kar Wai and Christopher Doyle movie looks. i want to take pictures that view like a Godspeed You Black Emperor! song sounds.

i have a tendency to crop out 80% of my subject, i'm like an axe murderer, i have no qualms with lopping off your head. i like messy images as much as i like 'clean' ones, if not more. i don't think blurry is always bad. i tend to shoot more with my 'toy' cameras and polaroids than i do my slr's. i love film like a mofo. high grain black and white and cross-processing gets me hot. if that's cool with you, you're cool with me. if you like Morrissey, you're even cooler.

you can keep your bajillion megapixel thing...i'm cool with my lomo.

i do not expect universal appeal.

i'm sure even more places than i'm aware, and that's not necessarily a good thing.
