Jory Lee Cordy Photography

Jory photographs everyone from his friends, to actors, to musicians. Chances are if you live in LA, or listen to music, or like stalking celebs, you’ve seen his work. The thing is about Jory, is that his photos of these types of people don’t feel flat or dull like the majority of celebrity photographers. I feel personality in his portraits and energy in his lifestyles. California looks alive and exciting and thanks to Jory, I felt inspired to read more >

Kenji Rodrίguez Tanamachi is reinventing how we experience live music. Kenji, aka ‘Kenzoysauce’, doesn’t read music, he doesn’t play the guitar or the piano or any traditional ‘musical’ instrument yet he plays in Vancouver’s Bear Mountain, functioning in exactly the same way that his band members next to him do on stage. He’s dedicated to bringing the visuals as a core component of the show and showcasing the read more >

Carin Wester_style_witnessthis

Stopped in my tracks by the first print featured here by Carin Wester, I couldn’t help but feature this latest line. Carin is Sweden based, and has won several prestigious awards over the last few years. We see a stunning array of fabrics and cuts, with some interesting textures tied into the silhouettes. A fantastic blend of classic high-fashion and practical winter wear make this line more interesting than most winter releases I’ve seen. See more and shopread more >

Lusine-witnessthis_sound2

Awhile back we posted on an album that was blowing our minds, The Waiting Room by Lusine. Months later, it’s still on heavy rotation. We talked to the mastermind behind the moniker, Jeff McIlwain and his wife/vocalist Sarah McIlwain to learn more about this album and hear about their tour. He was even kind enough to send us some shots from the road.

Mixtape by Lindsay Colip
There comes a point in your life when you realize time is flying by at ludicrous speed. At this moment, it’s good to re-asses where you are, where you’ve been and where you want to go. With the lunar eclipse behind us and the solar eclipse around the corner, now is the time to get rid of what isn’t working for you, to slough of the old skin, shake off the complacency, move read more >

Sophisticated, edgy, and badass. That’s what I think of Acne’s latest delivery of Winter gear. It’s hard to imagine rocking a lot of these styles in LA this time of year, but our friends in temp-dropping climates will definitely appreciate these looks. Sweden’s favorite clothing brand stays ahead of the game when it comes to contemporary cuts and materials. For the most part, the vibrant prints are kept as detailing, and navy’s and blacks found on the larger read more >

Veronica Losantos - Light Diaries_darkroom_witnessthis-2

Veronica Losantos tells us stories through her imagery. Based out of Berlin and originally from Spain, her images tell of her travels as well as her daily life. The colors are something special, and paired with her attention to detail, we are left with a nostalgic feeling previously reserved for old foreign films.
We recently featured musical duo Niemand & Keiner on the blog. The main photo we posted of the guys was taken by read more >
