Genovese/Yoshida Collaboration

Many of you may be familiar with the collaborations done between myself and Sean Genovese. Over the last couple of years, we have been teaming up to create a different sort of action/art medium. 2 years ago, Sean came to me with the idea of printing some black and white shots onto watercolor paper, and then having him paint them in. Knowing Geno's skill and knack for just being artsy in general, I agreed to have him make a couple pieces. They turned out killer, and even was a feature in Snowboard Mag. The next year, we teamed up again, only this time our collab was much more complicated. What we set out to do, was print photos onto several different layers, and then have a sort of 3d picture, and then photograph all the layers together. Well....it's hard to explain, but what did come of the collab was my second cover of Snowboard Magazine, and a full article in america and Europe! The only bummer is that a lot of the shots did not get picked.....so here are the outakes! enjoy!

   Nick Dirks........this guy is somewhat of a kink master
This photo never got run, but I thought it was amazing.  It was a longer exposure, where we painted in the photo with a headlamp and a couple flashes
