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).
