In case you missed it, the charity/launch event is Thursday Feb 19th – Livestock (1709 West 4th Vancouver)! All profits from shoes sold that night will be donated to The Global Fund! Come out and support a good cause and get some shoes to boot (I’m not totally sure if that’s a pun).

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
