Yesterday I gave a friend of mine the Leroy Grannis book of surf photography from the 6o's and 70's. While the gift was being unwrapped, another firend shared his experience of photographing the iconic photographer for American Vogue. Apparently Grannis politely expressed his desire to be home in time for a glass of wine with his wife at 4 o'clock. When asked what the occasion was, Grannis responded that it was something they had done every afternoon for forty years. Leroy Grannis passed away in February this year at the age of 93.

I really relate to these words from Spielberg. Getting lost in details can really be a barrier to capturing the beautiful moments which constitute the soul of the picture. The same is true of life.

The below is my first video project that happened spontaneously whilst shooting stills on my Canon 5D Mark II.  I shot a few clips of video and did a rough edit on iMovie. We were working alone, no hair & makeup, no stylist. It took me back to the beautiful intimacy and raw simplicity of when I first starting taking pictures.

If you're interested in the phenomena of crop circles, read the article written by my friend Amely Greeven on Reality Sandwich. Whatever you believe, their beauty is undeniable.

Jim Jarmusch makes unconventional, minimal, surreal films. They are beautifully shot, and feature flawed characters in often familiar environments filmed in a dreamlike state.

Some stills from the films of Jim Jarmusch...

Some words from the man himself...
