BAY LOVE

Photos by Tiago Sperotto There’s something magical about the Bay. You feel it the moment you step outside. Its in the air. The crispness cutting through any superficiality, revealing only what’s real in every interaction. Soon the magic is inescapable and you can’t help but smile. That’s just how it is in the Bay. You […]

Photos By Celso White The thing I love most about traveling is meeting interesting people and hearing their stories. The human experience never ceases to amaze me, especially when it comes to people that live in a totally different environment.

SMILES ALL AROUND

Photos By Camila Marie It’s 4:45am and I still can’t find the words to describe Friday night. How do you put it all into words? I can’t remember a night that felt so good. One of those nights that I wished went on forever. Thank you to everyone for making the night so amazing. Special […]

RELENTLESS AMBITION

A conversation with stylist and Storefront co-founder Roy Peart, Jr.

Photos By Deana Younus What inspires you? Life in itself inspires me. I’m inspired by my environment, art, movies, and music. But most of all I’m inspired by the beautiful struggle I’m faced with everyday. I have been through so many situations, so many people couldn’t even imagine. The challenges in life make me work […]

Ladies and gentleman, we’re on the verge of making history. November 2nd is two days away, and with that date comes the opportunity to legalize marijuana. Personally, I’ve never been too involved in the political process. I was juiced for Obama, and I’m juiced about the possibility of trees being legalized. Other than that, I’ve […]

LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF ACTING

The life of an up and coming actor in Los Angeles, as told by Reed Windle

Photos By Tiago Sperotto I have yet to find my neighborhood café. For many writers I feel like finding the right café is much like finding the right pen or notebook. It has to suit you well. And quite frankly, I desire a bit more from a coffee shop than what Starbucks or Coffee Bean […]

I’m a little conflicted when it comes to Pendelton. I love their colorful aesthetic, and their attention to detail and quality, but I feel like they kind of swagger jacked the tribal patterns of Native American art. With Thanksgiving coming up and all, I find myself extra critical of all mass produced “Americana” inspired garments.

If there’s any consistent theme to Engaged Observers, The Getty’s collection of photojournalism from the past 50 years, it seems to be that human existence can be both beautiful and terrifying. Sometimes at the same time. From Susan Meiselas’ look at the 1978 revolution in Nicaragua to Mary Ellen Mark’s portraits of runaway street kids […]

Photos By Bryan Derballa In many ways I feel like this is also The Renaissance. A return to the celebration of humanity through creativity. Willi Dorner’s latest street installation, entitled “Bodies in Urban Spaces,” finds Dorner utilizing the public space of Lower Manhattan to create his human sculptures. Choreographing performers into various positions, Dorner’s pieces […]
