2018 in Review | 3D Gifs

I started 2018 with a new toy. And we played, a lot. So here are my favorite 3D gifs/wigglegrams/stereoscopic images I made last year.

From covering my roommate in milk to him covering me in silly string. From Astroworld Festival to Desert Daze to Air + Style. I can’t wait to see where this weird shit takes me this year.

Head here to see more. If you’re interested in getting a lenticular print of any of these images, hit me up here.

Superorganism Concert at Moroccan Lounge

Eight-piece band Superorganism have found their quirky niche and settled right in to captivating listeners world wide. The air of mystery surrounding Superorganism is thick; some faces are yet to be revealed, their members are from nearly every continent, and the fact that they may be fronted by a 17 year old is up for debate. Armed with catchy as fuck songs and a live show full of whimsy, that crawl-under-your-skin-so-good nature of Superorganism is impossible to resist.

Managed to hold back dancing just long enough to get these shots from their concert at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles. Enjoy.

Slow Magic Concert at The Roxy Theatre

Slow Magic describes themself as "music by your imaginary friend," and that concept seems even more fitting after shooting their show at The Roxy last night. Of course, anyone that performs in a light up tribal zebra (I think?) mask is gonna have an air of mystery lingering around them. But Slow Magic's ability to command one of the kindest and highest energy crowds I've seen (on a Sunday night, no less) was the stuff of dreams.

Here are some photos I got. Enjoy the magic; I certainly did.

Hundred Waters Concert at El Rey Theatre

Supporting their newest album, Communicating, Hundred Waters played to a consumed crowd at El Rey Theatre on Friday night. It wasn't just their emotionally-stirring-yet-soothing songs that were so consuming; Hundred Waters used this Los Angeles show to debut their new A/V collaboration with Timeboy entitled  'ARRAY'. Having shot other shows featuring visuals by Timeboy, I knew I was in for a treat and was not let down.

Khruangbin Concert at Proof Rooftop Lounge

Every concert I get the opportunity to shoot is an absolute honor. I've been doing this a couple years now, and there are still moments in every set that it hits me just how lucky I am to be doing something that ignites passion and gratitude and amazement in my soul. But there were a few more things that made shooting last night's hometown show for Khruangbin even more special.

It was my last concert to shoot in Houston for the foreseeable future. This big city has cradled me and grown to feel cozier than I could have ever imagined possible. But tomorrow I head west for Los Angeles; a new big city of hopes and goals and fears and artists to shoot and lessons to learn and new faces to meet and grow familiar with. I'm not saying this is my last Houston concert shoot ever, but it feels more like graduating than either of my actual graduations ever did.

More significantly, the name of one of Khruangbin's albums, The Universe Smiles Upon You, has become a sort of mantra of mine. Over the last few years, I've dedicated myself to practicing positivity and mindfulness. As a natural born pessimist, it's a battle hard fought every moment of every day. It began slowly, a simple reassurance I'd repeat in my mind, and progressed to actually telling people the universe smiles upon them when they were facing hardship and success alike. It snowballed from there. Now I could sit here typing an avalanche of all the ways those words bring me clarity, and it would get weird and spiritual and scientific and philosophical and a lot of other things, so I won't (for now). Just know, the universe smiles upon you.

There are a handful of other reasons this show was so special to me, but let's be real, you came here for the photos (and I really should start packing). I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
