WitnessThis-RyanSchude-8572303369_bae306535d_o

Ryan Schude is a Los Angeles based commercial photographer with a refined style that pushes the limits of photo realism. His moody, meticulously staged scenes are reminiscent of works by the great Gregory Crewdson with multiple narratives that the viewer can translate in their own way.  The images are highly compelling visually with the allure of trying to solve the narrative pushing the images into a happy haunting.
I personally feel that the most successful creatives I know continue to read more >

kwabs_sound_witnessthis

Kwabs defines new age soul with his gut wrenching vocals and intricately constructed instrumentals. It’s amazing how Kwabs is able to feel so relevant and timeless bridging genres while staying true to quintessential R and B. Camberwell,UK based Kwabs is bigger than love ballads and finds his rightful seat amongst The Weeknd, and Banks of this day and age.

I don’t know what the fuck these guys are doing but it’s awesome. In their video for Cold Steps they are wearing great clothing and dancing all over suburbia like they don’t care. They are from LA and I don’t know anything about them but I am on the hunt to see them live and do a follow up feature where we do an interview so stay tuned. Check out more from their soundcloud here.

John-Talabot-and-Jamie-xx-sound_witnessthis

Tim Sweeney brings forth another epic set as he hosts John Talabot and Jamie XX (from the XX) in playing a non-stop 2 hour set, playing 2 and 2. The soundscape provided by these two breaks away from any pre-conceived notions I had on what their sound would be. It’s glorious in the way it leads you through a schizophrenic tempo forest without being harsh or unsettling and the fact that they are able to combine read more >

owen perry_circa 1983_darkroom_witnessthis-15

Circa 1983 is the work of Owen Perry. I came across his work last week and haven’t been able to close the tab on my browser window. Every time I come back to his images, I can’t stop scrolling as if I’m in a dream state. Being from the mountains, and longing for escape from LA at least a few times a week, these images make me happy. See more of Owen’s stunning work here.

When I die,
I want to fall in my bed exhausted,
covered in scars,
stories buzzing in my head,
of memories and inside jokes,
from a lifetime of misadventure.
My broken bones barely healed,
my weathered skin and matted hair,
A body running on fumes.
And I will lay there,a room full of grand children,
minds alive with curiosity,
for a world waiting to be explored.
And a beautiful wife, with soft hands in mine,
smiling because she knows me best,
and then she would look at me,
and see the read more >

the-colourist_witness-this_sound

We haven’t posted many music videos as of lately, but this one caught my eye and ear. It’s more poppy than I usually post but I can’t hate what puts me in a good mood, and although light and fluffy, Adam Castilla and Maya Tuttle’s chorus’s had me smiling and humming, so fuck it, I’m in! The Colourist is Adam Castilla and Maya Tuttle of Paper Thin Walls along with friends Kollin Johannsen and Justin Wagner. They read more >

“Made of what?” is a quite common reaction from people who witness Katrin Rodegast‘s work for the first time.
Katrin is a Berlin-based paper artist. Her work shows such a passion for the detail that it immediately caught our eye. But her talents go far beyond paper – ‘tactile illustration’ is what you call Katrin’s profession when she is not doing free artistic work.
Her work displays an enormous read more >
