Thomas Gatt Photography Zine

Our man down under Thomas Gatt returned last year from a 6 month travel around the globe. Along the way he trained his eye and camera onto some thoughtful compositions. The culmination resulting a limited zine release “By The Water” with various images from these travels. Came out pretty sick. Gander at more on Thomas’ website here.

Here’s what Thomas had to say:

So for starters I was born in Sydney and have lived here ever since. I left Australia in February of 2018 for Europe to travel alone for 3 months spent between Berlin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Malta and Barcelona. From there I flew over to New York where my brother lives and spent another 3 months there. I completely immersed myself in my surroundings and set out almost every day to shoot as much as I could and experience the diversity of the city I was in. Almost a year later, I put together what I believed to be a selection of images that best represents my visual perception of that particular moment in time.

I find beauty in darkness.

For me each image serves as a memory, as a collection they serve as a reminder of the period in my life when I was 18 on the other side of the world. The Title, By The Water.”

Nathan McKee - Surf Vids

We recently commissioned our friend Nathan McKee to create an original cut & paste piece based off some of surfing’s most important film contributions. This piece was a gift for Joel Tudor as a modest tip of hat for his contributions to surfing (and he put us up at the house a few times). All Nathan’s work is hand cut and pasted using construction paper. The piece measures ? and will be released as a print very soon.

While in Los Angeles for her solo exhibition // IDLE YOUTH // Johanna was able to fit in some tattoo appointments. All work was done with stick & poke method and very limited due to time and availability. Johanna set up shop in the gallery space over the weekend and managed to get about 10 tattoos done in all. Thanks to all that came out and got some ink and many thanks to Justin Gaar for taking pics.

We had a great evening last Saturday for the opening of French artist Johanna Olk’s solo exhibition “Idle Youth” at 1700 Naud curated Innocnts. Nice warm fall weather greeted a comfortable sized crowd for an evening of art and music. Big thanks to Venetian Blinds for a killer live set of ambient rock and roll and much appreciation to Peaking Lights for keeping the vibes right all night on the turn tables. Shout out to the homie MoreGnar for always snapping pictures at the events. Johanna exhibition remains up until November 18th with regular viewing hours typically 2-6pm through the week. Plenty of great artwork still available if you’re interested.
