In a world of instantaneous and cheap gratitude it should behoove you to take a step back and breathe. Not all needs to be instant with a flick of a finger or a command by voice. Some processes are meant to take time. Pace is no longer valued but when it is used, conscious care is taken and a project is given proper respect it tends to grow into something more. Those of us who choose to delve into less certain outcomes that shooting film is canny for have an understanding for this, photography for us isn’t caught up in pixels rather bound to our negatives and this drive to create something more is the basis of this book. In the past years gratification for the modern day photographer is shallowly quantified by a post that will be seen as an image no bigger than your palm in hopes that a satisfactory amount of people will spend about a second looking at it before tapping the like button or even better giving you their following. Our work should be treated with more respect, let it evolve for its self past its infant stage and become something cohesive and tangible. 

“Taco Tuesday” a collection of images that have been compiled over a stretch of a few years triggered by receiving a Nikonos V as a gift from a friend. Shortly after the move west, Erik found himself on the doorstep of the ocean where a couple days of learning how to swim in waves turned into one of his most desired activities and now a mainstay when the waves get good. The imagery is an honest reflection of one’s first foray with early mornings chasing waves to late nights blowing off steam in a sundrenched Southern California.

A Glimpse into Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark 21

Superpark is not for everyone. Side effects include, snowburn, sunburn, hangovers, beer shortages, body odor, Kodak courage, excessive branding, broken boards, trench foot, frontal flips, backward flips, grab and spins, double chucks, triple chucks, over energetic and over caffeinated 14-16 year olds who have been better at snowboarding than you since the day they were born. Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark is now legal in its 21st year and for the second consecutive year at Mammoth Mountain a seeming perpetual winter wonderland, its damn sure bigger, better and girthier than it has ever been. I mean come on the features that are built have almost no business existing outside of your Xbox. 120+ foot jumps, hips the size of buildings and consequence that of the same as jumping off of one. That being said we came for the snowfield littered with large sculpted takeoffs, strewn with bent metal but stayed for the beauty Mammoth Lakes has to offer. While this event is extraordinary on-snow its also an excuse for friends to gather in masses and enjoy each others company.
