when ryan schreiber txted me hours before deerhunter @ apple store soho show asking me unexpectedly to shoot it (in almost all cases, i ask for the shows i shoot), of course, i had to say yes. i’ve seen them in more perfect scenarios, but no amount of crowd tameness (seated) or sterility of setting could keep the band’s textures and melodies from soaring and hitting heavy. as usual, bradford cox was his overly-gregarious self. every time i’ve hung around him he’s been the last one there, and that was no different tonight, where he engaged with fans fully, taking pictures, passing his guitar around and demonstrating how he achieves his sounds. i won’t soon forget the communal jam session post-A.T.P. last year that lasted through the morning, or earlier that same day when p.f.t.v. had a marathon video shoot with him and literally had to cut him after awhile from simply going and going. i sound like i’m glowing, but i’m just refracting his light.

one hundred summer clicks

one hundred summer clicks

This Summer was a unique and seemingly plotless film filled with many moments of beauty that have to be seen to be believed. Following an amazing summer in the home base of our world, Brooklyn, captured through through the lens of Erez Avissar’s camera, and burned in our brains are these reminders that we’ve experienced something special and unequivocally unique. The neon golden glow that enveloped us over the summer was so real it leaked right onto the images we managed to expose amidst cleaning that caramel crooklyn sludge off the camera, but oh was it good. Summer’s just now ended, and as we transition into a new season, and thus a new chapter of this journey, these photos already evoke an instant nostalgia. The music, the parties, the people, and the times. All of us, at least once, shouting in the name of love. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
