The latest in the “Views from Rock Falcon” video series I shot and edited for The Hold Steady is at the bottom of this article :: The Guardian UK. Besides the trailer (post from January linked below), this was my favorite piece to put together as it utilized a lot of my old photographs of the band as well as some never-seen-before ones by Craig Finn.
Roses, fire, blood and a sword for Valentine’s Day? Of course when it comes from me, Brian Wimer and the lovely & talented Opal Lechmanski ::
I shot and edited this footage in Nashville in August and October during the recording sessions for the new Hold Steady album. More videos including interviews with the band and the producer will also be released soon.
G of GXU Images annually requests a “Fav 5″ list of local photographers’ five favorite shots taken during the past year. My group of five (errr, 10) can be seen by clicking here. As an aside, this photo of Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, taken after their sold-out New Year’s Eve show at the Jefferson Theater, was the very last photo I took in 2013. The show was a perfect ending to an encouraging year of recovery and improvement.
This is my projection piece for the Let There Be Light exhibit held on December 13th. The new Hoops Dreams Volume II portraits are linked below the video.

I am honored to be a part of the 2013 Let There Be Light exhibit on the grounds of the Earl Dickinson Fine Arts Building. The date is Friday, December 13th from 6-9pm (rain moves it one day). Admission is free as are the glow-in-the-dark maps to the displays of all 18 participating artists. I will be showing seven new portraits in the Hoop Dreams photo series that combine dance, human interaction and light painting. Unique transparent printing methods specifically developed for Let There Be Light will make the subjects come to life in a luminous glow. Also, I will have a Hoop Dreams projection video with a soundtrack featuring LCD Soundsystem, Beastie Boys, Modest Mouse and Young MC.
