THE NEWEST IN NEW...

2008.

It's been a good year for me (and Sarah). Sarah had a book come out, traveled around the world and a whole lot more (you can read about all that HERE if you so desire).

I got a few things accomplished myself.

A little list:

Didn't have a beard/had a beard/didn't have a beard



Had photos in 5 shows (2 solo)

Released a new zine (Sadkids #5)

Attended 2 portfolio reviews (one with Alec Soth)

Saw Jeff Wall and Lee Friedlander shows at SFMoma

Hosted Tim Briner at our old house for at least 3 weeks



Bought a 100 year old house in SF after Tim left

Shot at least 500GB of digital photos

Shot a bunch of rolls of film

Played a lot of Guitar Hero



Watched a zillion hours of TV (thanks TiVo)

Enjoyed music by MGMT, No Age, Man Man, Hank IV, Vivain Girls, Lil Wayne, Crystal Castles, Deerhunter, Nobunny, Jay Reatard...

Attended a lot of A's games

Made a ton of new friends (online and in real life)

Consumed numerous Bloody Marys, Beers and shots of Jager



Damaged and repaired 1 Leica M3

Visited Portland, Los Angeles, Reno, New York, Des Moines, Omaha, Memphis, Hawaii and Mexico



And made MILLIONS from the photo industry bailout...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

BURN SANTA BURN

This year in lieu of Christmas gifts, Sarah and I are donating money to charity. Not being preachy here, but if $20 can give someone in Africa clean drinking water for 20 years!? That's money well spent.

THIS AIN'T NO EBAY

The SF CameraWork annual live auction is this Saturday, Dec 6th starting at 1pm. Since the economy sucks, it might actually be a great time to go bid on some art - less competition? I'm just saying. I'll be there, watching my piece (hopefully) sell.

Here are a few of my favorites:
