We been getting a ton of mail lately, I love it. Thank you to anyone who has ever sent us zines or books they made. We can’t always return the favor, but I’ve tried in the past to help distribute some of these zines through our online store. In the long run that doesn’t work out well because it’s a ton of work and I still want to take photos and make my own zines and things. Anyways, what I can do is showcase some of my faves that come in. I’ll try to do it often since I can do it from my phone now.


These 2 come from Australia. The first one is a trip through California with a lot of familiar faces in there. And the second one is one of the better Winona zines I seen out.

Mark Wolfe Contemporary is pleased to present “Fifty Years of San Francisco Street Photography, 1965-2015″ an exhibition of never-before-seen images from veteran street photographers Maury Edelstein and Ted Pushinsky, the City’s reigning elder statesmen of the genre.

San Francisco has undergone convulsive, disruptive change over the past five decades, from the dawn of 60s counterculture, through the current decade’s housing and gentrification battles. Perhaps more than any other U.S. city, San Francisco seems to exist in a perpetual state of tumultuous flux. Upon closer examination, however, it is clear the human soul of the City is much the same as it ever was.

The photographs in this exhibition offer a compelling visual document of this paradox. Working entirely separately since the early 60s, Edelstein and Pushinsky have captured hundreds of candid images from the City’s streets, parks, buses, and front stoops. The selections on view at Wolfe Contemporary testify to the notion that although the cars, clothes, hairstyles, and skyline may have morphed radically over the decades, the people are still the people.

Maury Edelstein (born 1930) still lives within walking distance of Chinatown, North Beach, Downtown, and is a short bus ride to the Mission District. He began taking pictures in the 1950s, and continues to take photographs every day. Ted Pushinsky (born 1946) has been making photographs in San Francisco for over forty years. The two had never met or encountered one another’s work until this show.

Made a new section for all our home videos. I can’t seem to find all of them in the archives, so
I gotta re-post some of them. It’s kinda cool re-visiting these.

Check the new section..

The video above is from when we did a show at Hope Gallery in Echo Park promoting our book on Powerhouse.

This video is another show we did, this time in New York at Powerhouse.

This is an After Effects experiment.

This was a “call for entries” commercial for a Hamburger Eyes DVD that never came out. Jimmie shot and edited the footage for a class assignment. I added the subtitles and used it for this. 2003.

A hungry young man discovers a creative problem solver deep within. 2003.
