VIA Publication Issue 3 available for presale now! An excerpt from my series on alternative religion in Los Angeles will be appearing in this edition, as well as many other stories and insights about my beautiful and wild jungle of a hometown, El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles. From their website;
"We have spent the last six months collecting what we think are the most compelling, fascinating, and honest stories about Los Angeles via art, music, food, and culture. This time around we’re thrilled to share Sam Davis’s memories of public television, the internet, and growing up weird in LA; Erik Benjamins’s love letter to Huy Fong Foods’ endangered condiment, Sriracha; Emi Anne Kuriyama’s history of micro-grants and other community-based funding structures for local arts organizations; plus a play-by-play of hip hop night Low End Theory from Jordan Pedersen and a modern day bed-in with solo soul orchestra Moses Sumney. And that’s just a taste."

Just put a new video up on my Vimeo page; My paean to waves ~ light, sound and tidal, with video and audio collected over the last two years on my travels, over a steady hum of AM radio frequencies.

Two Saints

This is the first roll of a collaboration with my friend Oliver who lives in Los Angeles. I’ve never really collaborated with another photographer but I really love his stuff and was trying to think of something we could do together, and it occurred to me that we could double expose a roll of film for a kind of exquisite corpse effect. My part was shot in St. John’s (North Portland) and his was shot in Santa Monica, city of my birth and much of my youth. Two saints!
