I shot Hopscotch Music Festival (Raleigh, NC) for the Independent Weekly. Here is a link to the photos from my team:
The great smog of 1952, London (via my friend Prachi)
This isn’t the best of my photographs from Hopscotch. It’s my favorite photographs. Very different.
Soundtrack is “Glass Bubbles” from Hometapes artist All Tiny Creatures. They performed at Hopscotch 2011 on the final night at Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh, NC.
More Hopscotch photos are here: Zenfolio and Facebook. Buy a print or license any of these photos for online use. I have another business, but I have a rule: photography pays for photography. I try and make enough to cover the cost of my habit!
Oh this is amazing. It reminds me of one I took once. I’ll post that in a second.
*Please forgive the lack of caption, we’re currently hypnotized by this photograph*

Wilson and Vanessa (also known as wiissaa) took Instax photos of Mongolians who had never had their portrait taken before.
Their reactions to instant photos of themselves will make you smile.

Neat! Ninalee Craig, the woman in Ruth Orkin’s iconic 1951 “American Girl in Italy,” talks about her time being photographed by Ruth Orkin.
She’s now 83 years old. The orange shawl is the same one she wore in the 1951 photo.

Haha! This is wonderful. This was Emo Abby of last week! Great job, Dave Issod! I love this!
Next time you’re feeling blue, get all your feelings out by making a photo about it like Dave Issod did! We guarantee it’ll make you feel better than sulking :P
You might think I’m a professional photographer, but I’m not. I only shoot things I’ve already decided (on my own) to attend. If you invite me to come shoot something you are doing, I will probably say no.
I neither care about nor need “exposure” as a photographer. In fact, quite the opposite. It is not a treat for you to give me free passes to something you are doing that I’m not at all interested in. You say you’re giving me something for free. I say you’re handing me a responsibility I don’t want.
I need something to occupy my hands and my mind when I’m out and about. It keeps me from getting into trouble from being bored in moments of inaction. Photography is fun for me. It’s not my job.
Don’t take it personally. I barely have time to shoot and edit at all, but I find the time when it’s already something I’m doing for fun.
P.S. Thank you. I am glad that you gain some enjoyment from my hobby. The fact that you’ve asked is flattering.
I’ll add more slowly. I’m trying to just put my very favorite here.
I love this blog so much. I spent a lot of time in the Spitalfields neighborhood of London during the summers between 1993 and 2000. This photo was taken in 1991. Such an interesting feel to that part of the world. It’s where Jack the Ripper lived, and you can tell. It’s multicultural now - lots of Indian restaurants and shops mixed in with the market and artists. I miss it. This photo is amazing and shows Christ Church in the background.
