one day, you and I, let's build a house. I mean just a structure like a treehouse. cabin room place. out of wood I would think. we can build that. and then sit in it. hang out in it. like, I'll decide to go hang out there and open its door and you'll already be there, lying on your back reading, so I'll just join you. - lpr
photos by gosha rubchinskiy
I can't remember where I first got these photos, but in re-researching Gosha, I've come up with a few choice quotes that I surely didn't find the first time around. Gosha is young - only 25 - but he is a designer, a photographer, an artist, etc. The Times did a little piece on him and I learned about some of his muse's influences are the Bible, Victor Pelevin's novels, orthodoxy, runes, numerology, football, Satanism and shamanism. The article also mentions the "most popular blog for Moscow teenagers" but doesn't link to it?!?!?! Anybody know the blog? I need it! And I like these photos. That's all.
Sometimes I take photos with the sub-par quality camera on my near-ancient blackberry. Here are a couple from the past few months. They are fairly representative of how I live my life and what interests me.
1. Some graffiti on the way to the J train stop at Bowery.
2. Jelly belly flavored soda at the Bodega right off the Marcy stop.
3. One Sunday, I decided to learn how to make roses out of icing.
4. Didn't end up buying Lulu soda in Sunset Park - I got two Squirt sodas instead.
5. Not only does my camera take grainy photos, it takes photos when I don't want it to because it works so slowly. But sometimes the colors from fast photos of my fingers, the ground, my pocket, etc., are pretty!
6. Amateur braiding practice is a great way to pass the time while cookies bake.
7. I think this is on Rivington, just off of Bowery. If I ever need to know where to go for BOO, I can just remember this photo.
8. Kittens at the animal hospital around the corner from my apartment. I go in sometimes just to hang out and say hey to whoever is there.
9. Saw Revenge of the Electric Car in Chicago, and couldn't leave without taking a picture of this AMAZING old poster. Sick graphic design and fairly-tales?!
10. Gus Gus may as well be my dopplegänger. Now I have him in miniature to carry with me wherever I go.
11. Sunsets in Colorado always kill it! Taken just before the car wash on the corner before you turn left to go to my house.
12. See # 6.
13. A Laurence Weiner on the side of the Denver Art Museum.
14. Clyfford Still Museum in Denver: "Still" one of my favorite abstract expressionists.
15. Was Miuccia looking at Clyfford's sketches of his wife when she designed Miu Miu's Fall/Winter 2011?

These are each photos from mini-photograph books (like a super high class zine) from David Strettell, the owner of Dashwood Books. Aren't they nice?

that's some belated back to school vibes, for ya...
Gisele Bundchen by Emma Summerton for i-D // Pre-Fall 2011 (via buro 24/7)
Let us not forget that one-pieces have a long history of being useful, for people, working and doing their jobs, and not just for making it awkward for me to go the bathroom. Besides, he's working this look better than I could ever hope.

I love the layering, the prints, the attitude in that last photo. Also, let's add this to a running list of places that exist only for fashion editorials. What is this, an abandoned, fancy parking garage? An empty construction zone? Why is the light so white?
