Smile On Your Brother!

My good friend Bob Kronbauer has teamed up with Mike Giles and Annie Lam, founders of a Canadian charity called Contributor, to curate an art show called “Smile On Your Brother”. The show features 50 hand crafted, oak skateboards covered with art by artists from all over the world. The boards will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards a fund that will supply skateboards to Canadian kids who might not otherwise be able to afford them! The show opens here in Vancouver at Livestock (Gastown) on Monday, August 24th. Be there!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
