Ran into Todd Cole on the street in LA. He was shooting a billboard that Mike Mills did. I also saw this Tobin Yelland photo at the art fair. Spoke with my homie Ashley Macomber last night, who is just back from her show in Mexico City. And check this out if you are a fan of Robert Capa or photography in general...

Deanna and Stacy, Barcelona, Spain 2007

I just want to add that Geoff Rowley is one of my best friends. He is a fearless and unrelenting individual that does not live by cliches and labels, and in fact defies being labeled. Unlike me, he has never publicly drawn a line in the sand regarding his morals and ethics regarding veganism or vegetarianism by talking about it in an interview. Therefore nobody can take him to task for 'selling out' or being a hypocrite. The facts as I know them are that he eats very close to a vegan diet and does not kill animals wantonly. That is more than I can say for most Americans (or Britons.) Although our views differ on the subject of hunting, he has a great deal of knowledge about nature, and holds a great love and curiosity for its beasts and beauty.

Remember this photo I posted a while back?

Image Description Here
A lot of people commented asking what the fuck was going on, so Geoff posted a comment that I am reposting right below:
It was shot by my good friend Tony Hoza, one of the most respected lion hunters in the West, he retired from guiding after 40 years a few years ago and ever since has been trying to catch one really big cat for himself. In forty years he has only shot two other cats, one was in defense, the other was mounted and then later ruined when his house was flooded. This 170lb male cat was cleanly killed and all the meat packed out to be eaten. The thrill of the hunt is in the chase and the beauty of the surroundings, not the "kill" i have accompanied him on these hunts every year for the last five years and every time has been a pleasure, it is not for the timid or anybody out of shape as the days can be grueling with the snow at times waist deep for hours and the terrain very dangerous.
I'm smiling because i cannot pick the fucker up!!
Any comments?
