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.

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

Adidas Showcase, January 19 2017

Last night I had the honor of being in the first Adidas Showcase of 2017 – a group show of local artists from “skateboarding and beyond” – at the Soho Arts Club in New York’s Lower East Side. I showed some photos from my zine, Sakura, with Takahiro Morita, and some portraits of the one and only Mark Gonzales, originally shot for Paper and Jenkem magazines. It was truly a privilege to be a part of such a great night and show with so many other talented skaters and artists. Major thanks to Adidas Skateboarding and Josh Zickert of Natural Koncept for including me in the show, and Soho Arts Club for hosting. Short photo recap below. Check out the full recap from Juxtapoz Magazine here.

New Website Updates

I just updated the music section of my website to include some of my favorite shots from the pat 2 years at Northside Festival as well as lots of local shows.

Here’s Grandmaster Flash doing what he does working the crowd at Mccarren Park in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for Northside 2016, and a quite different crowd at the Subhumans show at Saint Vitus just a couple hours later.

Please check it out at www.colegiordano.com!
You might see a familiar face or two.

Cryptic Carousel for Bandcamp

I recently got to indulge my inner music nerd and love for all things DIY in the music scene when I met the man behind Cryptic Carousel, and photographed the workspace where he masterminds the production of his brilliant cassette tapes (among all other things analog). See more photos and read the full interview for Bandcamp here.

#AsianFoodMafia for Brooklyn Magazine

Here are the tear sheets from the story I shot for Brooklyn Magazine on the #AsianFoodMafia – a group of like minded Asian chefs attempting to change the perception and culture surrounding Asian cuisine in New York City, as well as the way chefs work with each other, in order to create a proactive and supportive community within the industry.

The story can be seen in the February issue, available on newsstands now.
Read the article online here, or pick up a copy to find out more.
