Yesenia On 35mm

I shot Yesenia Linares for the first time years ago. I was really sick and ended up shooting her in the corner of my living room as I died on a couch. We really hit it off and became pretty good friends but for some reason we never took photos again. I think she likes me more than my photography and she has sort of blown up as a model so I get it but I finally convinced her to take some photos with me again.

I went over to her place in Brooklyn and I decided I would shoot three rolls of black and white film. I had seven rolls ready to drop off and my photo lab gives me a discount for 10 rolls or more so it seemed like a great reason to shoot some film. I try and make an effort to shoot a few rolls of black and white every month but it doesn’t always happen.

When I got to Yesenia’s place we sort of shot the shit for a while and she made us coffee and by the time we started shooting it was already getting darker in her place. By the time I had finished the second roll it was too dark even with my very fast lens. I had taken a couple of photos of her with my point and shoot camera loaded with color film and it gave me an idea.

Yesenia laughs more than any person I have ever met. It’s one of the reasons she is so much fun to hang out with. I had an idea to finish the color roll of her in front of a white wall but every photo I took would be while she was laughing. My point and shoot camera has a flash the lack of light wouldn’t matter.

So in this gallery you have the results of two rolls of black and white film and one roll of color. The black and white images are soft and pretty and the color ones are harsh with flash and really kind of lovely. I think you are going to enjoy them.

As always there are a few exclusive images saved just for the Girls of Driven By Boredom App. They are in higher resolution too. I put the app on sale for Christmas and it did so well that I am extending the 20% off sale until New Years Day. Use code “dbb” for the discount and get a ton of exclusive high res content like the app only Andy San Dimas set I just posted!

Now click here to see the NSFW 35mm images of the lovely Yesenia Linares!

Ps. Yesenia is in my new book eating fried chicken. You should buy it. It ships next week.

The Lost Andy San Dimas Set

Many years ago I got to photograph Andy San Dimas for the first time. I went over to her place and we shot on the roof of her apartment in Los Angeles. It was very hot and very bright and theoretically anyone could have come up at any moment so we had to shoot fairly quickly. Andy is such a babe but I didn’t realize that it was going to become one of my favorite sets ever. Andy loved it too and she told me that she once met a serious boyfriend because he contacted her after seeing the pictures.

After we shot we went into her bedroom and shot an intentionally amateur looking set that was supposed to end up as a “DIY” set on Gods Girls. I shot the set mostly with my on camera flash which makes it look like it was shot by just a “guy with camera” as they say in the business (of creepy dudes like myself photographing naked girls).

The set was also a lot more explicit than I normally shoot. Andy was rolling around her bed and I was shooting the kinda stuff I would shoot if I was photographing someone for “personal use”. The whole thing came out looking like some really sexy homemade porn. I have no idea why it never ended up on Gods Girls but I think I just forgot about it.

I knew I could never post it on my site because it didn’t look even slightly professional and it was much more graphic than anything I would publish here. Fortunately I have an app and I have been posting some of the more hardcore outtakes on there and this seemed like the perfect place for this set. I am really glad I found it when looking through old photos!

Nothing says Christmas like Andy San Dimas’ vagina so I decided to have a sale on my app until Christmas. Get yourself something for the holidays!

Download the Girls of Driven By Boredom mobile app and get 20% off using the code “dbb”! Not only does it have nearly 80 insanely hot photos of Andy San Dimas, but it also has 225 other sets featuring high resolution images, hands free browsing and a ton of exclusive, extra graphic, content. It works on all smart phones and just on your home computer if for some reason you don’t want to be looking at porn during meetings at work.

I know some of you are homeless and can’t afford the $5 it takes to get my app and keep me working so I posted a fairly tame preview gallery. If you like these shots just imagine 65 more photos (in twice the resolution) of her being much more creepy. I assure you they are worth signing up to my app for. Remember, use the code “dbb” for 20% off!

Now click here to see the reasonably NSFW preview of the lost Andy San Dimas set and then go sign up for my app for the fun stuff!

Ps. Andy is retired and goes by Sarah now.

Book Updates, Food Tattoos & Art Criticism

I got the copies of my new book Dinner With Igor on Friday. They were supposed to come today so that was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately there was a small print error which and I had to get the books reprinted. Fortunately my printer MGX Copy was great about it and put a rush order on the reprint and the books will be in my hands on Thursday.

On top of that, I will also be getting my 36 page zine “Food Tattoos” from MGX the same day. I am pretty excited about both projects and I can’t wait until you get your hands on them. If you were one of my Kickstarter backers your books will ship Friday, Saturday Monday and Tuesday (hopefully I will get them all done by Tuesday)!

Because of the holidays I am pushing my book release party to January but you can still preorder both Dinner With Igor and Food Tattoos at my Etsy store!

You can get signed versions of them both at a discount if you click right here!

Lastly, I should mention that I am giving a 10 minute talk about the books and some other projects on Wednesday as part of the monthly Bushwick Art Crit Group session. I truly hate talking about my work especially around actual fine artists, but for some reason I agreed to do it, so it should be interesting at the very least. Plus Wizard Skull is talking right after me and that guy spends his days ruining your childhood and that’s worth the price of admission alone (it’s free). So if anyone is bored in Brooklyn on Wednesday come hang out!

Spank Rock Upside Album Release – 12.9.14

On Tuesday Spank Rock released his new EP The Upside at Baby’s All Right. Spank Rock as always put on an awesome show and you can get The Upside right here. It’s amazing that Spank Rock isn’t one of the biggest names in music. He constantly puts out great music and has a great live show. Plus my dude Johnny Nelson is his hype man and Amanda Blank rules as well.

My old friend Contessa Suto aka Cunt Mafia opened the show with Lil Internet and put on the supremely weird and wild show she is becoming known for. She played half the set topless and had people moshing to her “trap metal” jams like Reign In Ratchet. Even if you hate Cunt Mafia’s music the show is very worth seeing.

Roxy Cottontail, Mike Q, Blue Jemz & Eli Escobar DJ’d the after party but unfortunately I got some pretty shitty news right after the show so I had to bounce early. I didn’t really feel like partying after that. But even with the shitty news it was a fun night and I got to see a lot of people I hadn’t seen in ages.

Now you guys should go look at these photos while I add some new photos to the Girls of DBB App.

Secret Walls Basel – 12.6.14

Secret Walls is a live art battle where two teams of artists have 90 minutes to paint a massive wall with only black markers and paint. The Art Basel event took place at Basel House in Wynwood and a bunch of my friends were involved so I figured I had to check it out.

My homies Greg Mishka and Lamour Supreme where on a team with Elle, Greg Mike and several other bad ass artists. My friends Buff Monster and Sucklord also happened to be judges. Greg and Lamour’s team won despite Sucklord voting against them because they blew him off earlier that day.

One of my photography heroes Martha Cooper was a judge so I was pretty psyched to take her photo. I had actually just purchased one of her books literally a few minutes earlier so that was pretty cool.

Lastly I should mention that Elle was wearing a Miami Dolphins hat which is important because I am obsessed with the Dolphins and she is an unreasonably talented super babe so she get’s bonus points for the hat. The end.

Le Baron Art Basel 10th Anniversary – 12.5.14

Le Baron is a NYC and Paris and for the last 10 years they have been throwing a pop up party in Miami during Art Basel. I went a few years ago and had a blast and this year the Miami New Times was looking for someone to shoot the party one night so I figured I might as well hit it up.

I have way too much shit to do this week after getting back from Miami that I am going to make this post a quick one, but I will say that it was the most fun I have had at a party in a long time. Good music, hot babes and everyone was actually having fun. It’s a reasonably exclusive party and a lot of times they tend to be the most boring parties because everyone there is too cool to have fun. Le Baron on the other hand is the kinda party that makes me miss shooting nightlife every day.

Now click here to see all the photos from the 10th anniversary of the Art Basel Le Baron pop up party at the Delano in Miami.

2014 #MetLifeTakeover

The #MetLifeTakeover that I throw every year when the Miami Dolphins come up to play the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Of all the things I have ever done in my life it is probably my most successful. My partner Michelle and I have grown our fan club Dolfans NYC to become the biggest Miami Dolphins fan club in the world and the #MetLifeTakeover has become an event on every insane Miami Dolphins fan’s calendar.

I have no idea how to explain it to people who don’t know about this part of my life but Michelle and I bought and sold over 1000 tickets to a football game and you could hear our club loudly on the Monday Night Football broadcast. Several players Tweeted about us after the game and the head coach mentioned us in his post game press conference.

Dolfans NYC also through a party the day before at our bar Slattery’s with former Dolphins quarterback Jay Fiedler and rapper Solo D. We raised over $3000 for charity and this adorable thing happened. The next day we set up a massive tailgate at MetLife (sponsored by AquaHydrate!) and threw a pretty great party despite the freezing rain. The Sailor Jerry rum and hot cider helped. Also the Dolphins won so that was nice.

Anyway I know 95% of you don’t care about this stuff but I am going to Art Basel in Miami tomorrow so next time I update it will probably be Miami related stuff you DO care about. If anyone needs a photographer at Basel get at me. I got a pretty free schedule.

Now, if you want to read more about these events you can click here to read about the #MetLifeTakeover and you can click here to read about the pre-party.

Thanksgiving Leftovers

One year ago on Thanksgiving I announced the series of food books I wanted to do. The first of them, Dinner With Igor, is about to come out! I got the book proof in the mail yesterday and after a few tiny changes it should finally go to print tomorrow! That means I will get the book by mid-December and I will be shipping books out in time for Christmas!

The only problem is that I don’t have time to plan a proper book release party. I could rush it and just throw something together (okay, I still might) but in all likelihood the release party won’t be until January. All the Kickstarter backers will get Dinner With Igor by Christmas, but no one else will and that will clearly make everyone very sad.

But in the spirit of the bullshit non-holiday that is Black Friday, I am going to offer 10 signed books for sale as a pre-order and they are also $5 off the normal price because I am a god damned saint.

So, get a pre-order copy of Dinner With Igor before they are sold out! And check out the incredibly sexy cover!

Asphyxia Noir

I met Asphyxia Noir years ago when I picked her up at a bus station in Vegas as a favor to the Burning Angel crew while they were trying to organize a party they threw during the AVN Award weekend. I ended up shooting her in a bathroom at that party with Skin Diamond and then years later I shot the two of them again right after the AVN Awards. I really loved that post-AVN shoot but I still wanted to shoot Asphyxia on her own.

Luckily a few months ago I got the chance. I was in LA and I hit Asphyxia up and we made plans for a sunrise set but it’s hard to get anyone awake at 5am so I had a feeling it wasn’t going to work out. I called her to wake her up and she told me she was sick. I figured she was just flaking on me because it was super early but I was happy to go to sleep anyway. Later that day she hit me up and told me she could shoot so I met up with her and it was immediately clear that she didn’t flake on me. She really was sick.

Despite her being reasonably close to death the shoot turned out really well. Asphyxia is such a rad model and easy to shoot even though she would get dizzy every time she held a pose for too long. She had a dress she wanted to rip up and we spent about 20 minutes destroying the thing. Usually something like this would be a bit contrived for me but Asphyxia killed it.

At some point she could barely stand up but we still took some bonus dirty shots that are exclusively available on the Girls of Driven By Boredom app (all in high resolution!) and then I let her finally go back to sleep.

In conclusion, Asphyxia rules, she didn’t die and her boobs are so rad it makes me cry a single tear every time I think of them.

Now click here to see all the NSFW photos of Asphyxia Noir!
