NOTES

If you find this beautiful, read Defining the Wind by Scott Huler.

 


I met Joe Aguirre during a photo workshop run by Eric Kim (who has also taught me a great deal about photography and living simply). I love Joe’s work, and realize I also took a lot of unconscious inspiration for this site from his.

 


Matt Stuart is one of my favorite current photographers. I learned about him from a street photography book, and am now friends with him on Facebook through our mutual friendship with Joe Aguirre. That just seems weird and cool.

 


My friend Rebecca Gimenez is a very talented graphic designer. She worked with a group called We Have Photoshop. Their site is amazing, and has links to very cool sites by their friends.
