Feature in Closing Ceremony Magazine by Same Paper from China

Happy to be featured along so many great photographers and artists in the first issue of Closing Ceremony Magazine, a specialized photography magazine from Shanghai, China. Published by Same Paper.

"It's a closing ceremony when pressing the shutter for creation." Closing Ceremony Magazine is a ceremony for the traditional/classic photography and a warm welcoming to the new.  The internet and use of graphics software has facilitated an unprecedented speed, which has had a decisive impact on the ways we see and represent our direct environment. While at the same time, the new generation of photographers has found groundbreaking to relocate the borders, hence our awareness of urban reality. The bond between photography and the urban environment has to be reconsidered through a wider range of affiliations, and what makes contemporary street photography so compelling is its ability to lay bare the intricate that determine our perception of reality. Closing Ceremony magazine début issue features 14 contributing photographers: Bruno Zhu, Corey Olsen, David Brandon Geeting, Daniel Everett, Go Itami, Hiroyuki Sato, Izaac Enciso, John MacLean, KangHee Kim, Ryan Oskin, Sergiy Barchuk, Shen Li, Xiaopeng Yuan and Yoshinori Mizutani, their unpublished new works and interviews along with an essay written by Joël Vachero (Essay Author/ ECAL Teacher/ Visual Researcher) and exhibitions.

Recap: SYMBOLS - Book Release

The release of my book Symbols at the LA Art Book Fair at MOCA was a success.
It was a great pleasure to see a lot of good old friends and meeting so many new interesting people at the fair. It was really great to have people coming to our booth to get their book signed. We sold all the copies available at the fair.
