“Marc Razo’s Shred For Your Life guitar battle hit the stage for the 14th year last night to a jam-packed crowd at Brooklyn Bazaar. Twelve professional shredder’s went head to head over the course of three rounds, some dressed in drag, one as a nun, and one as a rocker who wore ass-less chaps. Randy the Macho Man Savage was present while others rocked their normal shred gear.”
-Josh Zickert aka JZ Radical
I recently spent a week in Sun Valley, Idaho and it’s surrounding regions in the Sawtooth National Forest, as well as some time in Salt Lake City. Here is a collection of some of my favorite images from the trip, shot on both digital and film, as seen in a new gallery on my website.
I had the pleasure of shooting the enigmatic Beach Fossils backstage at a recent concert at NYC’s Terminal 5 for a new interview in Monster Children Magazine, by my long time friend and collaborator, Anthony Pappalardo. The interview is up now and you can read it here.
This past November I had the immense privilege of getting to explore the Japanese country side and the regions surrounding Mt Fuji. I got to visit some truly incredible places, and meet and work with a lot of amazing people along the way. Far too many to include in one story, the article I shot and wrote for Huck Magazine on this trip is now up on their site. Thank you so much to the guides and locals who showed us around and taught us the beautiful history of the area. Please take a look!
“We all posted up after our court time expired and continued to talk. Some old-timers chatted us up as we shot photos and for the first time that day, I felt less aware of my own age, remembering that tennis, like skating, is almost ageless. In an era of real-time, hyper documentation, Gino Iannucci is very much the opposite of most skateboarders, while never sounding like a Luddite. Instead, it’s about quality control and the care and attention to what he puts out in the world, even something as simple as a single ad.”
On a sunny spring Sunday, writer Anthony Pappalardo and I met up with iconic, yet reclusive and mysterious pro skateboarder Gino Iannuci to play tennis and discuss skateboarding, his career (or neither at all), and whatever else came up along the way. Coincidentally, the article was published on the same day as new footage of Gino was released on Nike SB’s Instagram, also coinciding with the release of his new Dunk. Great to see some Gino coverage out in the world again!
