This is a project of great interest to us here at LIAS. Mike Brodie, also known as “the Polaroid Kid”, left home with a camera and spent the next several years hopping trains all over America. The collected photos of the era have since toured the country in exhibits, ultimately settling down into the 104-page book [...]


A New York union is complete. NYC-bred Hopps Skateboards is gracing the face of two photo-printed decks with the work of Ricky Powell, a man celebrated as one of New York’s top street photographers (and alleged Beastie Boys towel-thrower). Of course Powell is no novice to the world of collaborations, as you may recall his awesome Rakim, Public Enemy and [...]


LA streetwear powerhouse The Hundreds tap photographer Van Styles’ V/SUAL brand for a collaborative holiday collection for 2013. There’s also t-shirts involved in the collection, but really we’re just interested in Van Styles’ nifty camera work (much like with his “MIA/LA” Skateboard Deck Collection), because nothing says Xmas like a nice pair of sweater pillows boobies.

Later in his career O’Neill landed perhaps his [...]


While Playboy has long lost its way as a cultural beacon mixing intellectual stimulation with, well, boobs, no one has come along who has successfully filled its generation-defining void. That is until TREATS!, a thick coffee table-style magazine launched by photographer Steve Shaw as an outlet for his and his colleagues’ prolific nude work (some [...]


Years ago Vice magazine introduced the world to photographer Kern, whose specialty was shooting natural, everyday girls in natural, everyday settings. If you know Vice, then you know how well this concept fit in the mental cubbyhole of their readership. Under the tutelage of Vice‘s editor-in-chief Jesse Pearson, Kern went on to gallivant across the [...]


Photographer Van Styles shoots three of his favorite models for the latest skateboard deck collection for Los Angeles’ Primitive. Dubbed their “MIA/LA” collection, the series features the very easy on the eyes trifecta of Ashley Sky, Iesha Marie and Valeria Orsini in various states of undress, playing on the beach and enjoying an evening smoke.
