LA Artist Randall Herrington

You wont find Randall Herrington on social media or his artworks in a gallery, which is rather unusual for an artist of his skill and caliber. While Randall is creating his own art in a variety of medias and is successfully selling it directly to collectors, he also fabricates bronze sculptures for some big name artists. The process is so labor intensive and complex, that even after he went over it with me step by step in detail from the beginning to the end, I was left somewhat confused.

San Francisco parkour artist Raul Piscoya

On a recent trip to San Francisco I met with Raul Piscoya – a talented traceur, local SF Parkour leader and a member of Tribe Collective http://www.tribalmovement.com/. Raul took me on an awesome SF walking tour to some of his favorite parkour spots.

LA Artist David Buckingham

David Buckingham is an LA based artist http://www.buckinghamstudio.com/ who works with recycled metal parts of old cars which he finds on scrap yards. His work is witty, playful and provocative. He often expropriates pop cultural icons and film quotes to create bright three dimensional wall art and sculptures. While visiting his garage style studio in the city of Vernon, I was able to witness a mind-bending process of working with scrap metal. It’s an extremely physical (and I suspect very hazardous) process that involves cutting metal with a torch and then welding different pieces together to create the artwork. One of his largest sculptures which can be seen on one of the photos was created without any preliminary drawings or blue prints.

Swiss Parkour Artist Joel Eggiman in LA

Recently Joel Eggiman, an awesome PK artist from Switzerland has been passing through Los Angeles. I saw his post on Facebook and although we’ve never met before, he immediately replied. The next day we were exploring Downtown LA Arts District and LA River, arguably the most photogenic of all places in the city.

Alissa Vox Raw

This is a very recent shoot of a wonderful musician Alissa Vox Raw for my personal Artist’s Studios project. I’ve met Alissa at a concert and was seduced by her penetrating voice and her sense of style. I immediately knew that I’d like to get to know her better and shoot her in her studio. Every object in Alissa’s one bedroom flat is an extension of her unique taste and original personality. Every vintage dress in her closet beggs to be worn and photographed! Check out and enjoy Alissa’s music here https://soundcloud.com/alissavoxraw

The Russian Moment

Last summer I was invited to Russia to participate in a-once-in-a-lifetime documentary project commissioned by RIA News, the largest news agency in Russia. 20 photographers from G20 countries were offered to photograph their subject of choice anywhere in Russia. After a quick deliberation I decided to shoot Parkour and Street sports athletes. I traveled to Moscow, Tula, Kaluga to meet with several Parkour collectives. The project resulted in an exhibition during G20 Summit in St. Petersburg and a book, which finally I received in the mail recently. Check out this project on my website Street Sports Russia
