David Potes

I touched base with photographer David Potes this week. Dave and his brother Ray are the guys behind Hamburger Eyes, everybody’s favourite black & white street photo zine. Hamburger Eyes and FecalFace were huge inspirations for me in starting this site, so it was really cool to connect with him.

I also recently saw his brother Ray featured on FecalFace demonstrating how to print black & white film and that got me stoked. I mean, that’s what it’s about! Sharing knowledge! Teaching people! Getting everyone excited to make stuff! Enough of this elitism in the art community – its so tired. Okay, end of rant.

I snagged these great images from Dave’s portfolio – make sure you jump over to there to see a lot more, and be sure to check out Hamburger Eyes and try to not be excited about photography (impossible).

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
