Montreal, 2017

A few weeks ago I went to Montreal for the bachelor party of a good friend. I ended up enamored with the architecture there and found I couldn’t stop shooting the building’s of the city. Here are some of my favorites from the trip, as well as few of the boys as well. All shot with the fun little Nikon EM on Kodak Portra 400 film.

The buildings:

The boys:

Vans x Our Legacy

Growing up, skating and punk were synonymous. Last weekend in London, Vans debuted a new capsule collection with Swedish brand OUR LEGACY, inspired by 90s hardcore. Celebrating the release, Youth Of Today performed an intimate show at an art gallery in London’s Soho. To work with icons from both of those worlds simultaneously was awesome. More photos and the full story are up now at Paper Magazine.

Check out all of my favorites here: colegiordano.com/vans-x-our-legacy

Thank you Vans and Jockum of Our Legacy for inviting me to be a part of it.

Mark Gonzales for Jenkem and Paper Magazine

A couple of weeks ago I had the amazing privilege of spending an afternoon photographing and hanging out with one of my all time idols and influencers, and the man Transworld Skateboarding named the most influential skateboarder of all time, Mark “The Gonz” Gonzales. Writer, Anthony Pappalardo, and I spent a couple of hours in The Gonz’s studio in lower manhattan where we talked skating, art, bar fights, his new collab with Snoop Dogg and adidas Skateboarding, and helped him stick arrows into a vintage Vivienne Westwood hat…because…Gonz.

The story ran in 2 parts. You can read part one on Jenkem Magazine.

Part 2 can be found at Paper Magazine.

Soaker Promo for Wharfcat Records

Brooklyn based “punk, noise rock, [and] art-damaged sludge metal” band Soaker released their debut 7″ on Wharfcat Records today. These guys are great friends of mine, so I was stoked when they came to me with this out-there idea for a promo photo, which we had way too much fun working on.

You can read an amazingly sardonic interview with the band over at CLRVYNT, listen to their single from the record, Sendhi,  on AdHoc, AND you can order yourself a copy from Wharfcat’s website here.

Congrats dudes!
