Guest Artists: Louis Trinh

Louis Trinh is a photographer and friend based out of Los Angeles, California. My first memory of Louis was a few years ago during a evening of heavy drinking and smoking. Someone sloppily called him and demanded a hefty McDonalds late night order. The conversation was like a typical ransom call, short, direct and quite bossy. A hour had gone by and soon everyone forgot about that phone call until the door bell rang. There Louis was, with a gentle grin and McDonalds in hand. That night was a blur but I will always remember that moment clearly, strange. Louis and I became better friends shortly after...

Watch: Planetary Collective

"We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that everything is connected. PLANETARY is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call, a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. PLANETARY is a poetic and humbling reminder that it's time to shift our perspective. PLANETARY asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us - to remember that: we are PLANETARY." - P.C.

Feature: Brogan Bentley

"Seldom has a producer crafted a record as well-rounded and aware of the condition of atmospheric electronic music as Brogan Bentley’s The Snake. Bentley is one of a Stones Throw-affiliated Leaving Records’ recent signees and traverses the seas of drum and bass, trippy R&B grooves and hushed vocals. The Snake is akin to the beautiful sounds of Shlohmo and Caribou; comparisons that are not to be taken lightly, but will eerily confuse your brain in wonderful ways." - Pigeon & Planes Brogan Bentleysoundcloud.com/brogan-bentley Directed by Matthew Ching aka Nebula Nasty.

Guest Artist: Aron Luangphinith

Recently, I was introduced to photographer Aron Luangphinith by my friend Rechung. I soon became mesmerized by his style of capturing his new home. This was our conversation together.  Who are you, friend? My name is Aron Luangphinith and I was born and raised in Hawaii, USA. I graduated from the University of Hawaii with a B.A. in Art Studio and a focus in drawing and sculpture, while dabbling with photography on the side. How did you start photography? My passion for photography really took off when I made the move to Japan which has been one of my goals since I can remember.  Now working in Tokyo...

Melanie in Morocco

Our pal Mel, sent us a few photos from her trip to Morocco with Risa. How magical these blue buildings are. One day, I hope to visit and walk down these dreamy alley ways.Doing a little bit of detective work I found out that, Sephardi Jews coated each building and house with this beautiful cool shade of blue as a sign of divinity. This color is believed to be sacred in Judaism. However, others believe that this specific hue repels flies and other insects. Interesting on both accounts.  - Ben

Indoor Camping

This past winter in the bay area, I finally had the opportunity to work Julian Edward. I have been a fan of his photography and his work ethic for some time now. He approached me with the concept of creating a playful indoor camping scene within his photography studio. So with that in mind, we spent the next week sketching out ideas, and looking for props that could add the to scenes we played out in our head. The three vibrant backdrops represent the three main cycles of the sun; morning, day and night. The morning symbolizes our mind awaking and preparation for day, the day...
