Interesting Interview :: Noah Kalina

Knack being big fans of Noah’s work was definitely interested in this interview with the talented man himself. Seen on the ever inspiring toomuchchocolate site.

“I like to think every shoot I do professionally or otherwise is personal. Sometimes I don’t get a shot on a commercial or editorial job that I think falls into the category of “personal” but I always try and I am always thinking about it.”

Here’s another favorite photographer to add to the list. Lyndon Wade is a photographer based in New York city who’s work provokes vigorous energy that suggests a real moment being captured. Wade seems to have an amazing ability to produce complete narratives in a single image or that in a series.

With a client list including Sony, Virgin, Lee Europe, Emanuel Ungaro, Coke , Pepsi, Reebok, Channel 4 (London) Nestea, Sprite, CMT, Shady (Eminem) Limited, Target, Nintendo, Best Buy, WWE, Crest, Caesars, Dodge, Vibe, Stuff, Maxim, Harper Collins, Molson Beer, Vox Vodka, Sprint, GE, Sonic, Bayer, Nestle, BBDO, Draft FCB, J.

Mike Brodie AKA. The Polaroid Kid

Came across the Polaroid kids website and was impressed with what I saw….

Did a little research on the dude:

In 2003 Brodie left home at 18 to travel the rails across America. A friend gave him a camera and he found himself spending three years photographing the friends and companions he encountered with the Polaroid SX-70.[1] Polaroid discontinued SX-70 film, so now he shoots on 35mm on a Nikon F3.

Mike’s photographs have been featured in exhibits in Milwaukee, Austin, Atlanta and Los Angeles. His work was also selected to appear in the 2006 edition of the Paris International Photo Fair at the Louvre.[2] In November 2007 he collaborated with Swoon and Chris Stain to mount an installation at Gallery LJ Beaubourg in Paris.[3]. He also has had collaborative shows with artist Monica Canilao.

His photographs largely depict what he refers to as “travel culture”, train-hoppers, vagabonds, squatters and hobos. Brodie says his subjects are friends and acquaintances, “I know most everyone I shoot. I can’t really shoot a good photo of somebody unless I know them, but you can get to know somebody just by talkin for a few minutes ya know?
