Thievery Corporation: Pre-Show Rituals

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Thievery Corporation: Pre-Show Rituals

I first met Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, the two main men behind Thievery Corporation, in October 2004 when they were in Sydney to do some promotion. We did a photo-shoot and got on so well that when I moved to America, Rob asked me to shoot the pictures for his solo album and we […]

Reportage & Social Responsibility: A Dying Art?

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Reportage & Social Responsibility: A Dying Art?

This picture was taken early one morning during the 2000 Olympics at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Victoria Park, which was set up to protest the lack of Land Rights in Australia. A little known fact is that when Cook landed in Australia in 1788 he declared Australia to be 'Terra Nullius' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terra_nullius#History_in_Australia), essentially depriving […]

Beasts Of Bourbon: Drink Or Treat?

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Beasts Of Bourbon: Drink Or Treat?

The Beasts Of Bourbon are genuine rock n roll legends. It doesn't matter that if you live outside Australia you probably haven't heard of them. In fact most people within Australia haven't heard of them either. But like I said, the lack of mainstream awareness makes no difference to the reality of their status. Formed […]

Metropolis Pt2: Victor Calderone

September 2nd, 2010 by Andrzej Metropolis Pt2: Victor Calderone

As I waxed so eloquently yesterday about the photoshoot I did with Victor Calderone, I thought it only fair to post one of the pictures from the shoot. This image was the reason we ended up doing the shoot together. His album was called 'Evolve' and so when we met I suggested he have water […]

The Reality of Living In Metropolis

September 2nd, 2010 by Andrzej The Reality of Living In Metropolis

This picture was taken in the middle of a photo-shoot I did with the DJ Victor Calderone. As independent musicians tend to, he told me he really didn't have very much money for a photo-shoot and so I agreed to be reasonable in my budgeting for the shoot. Very reasonable considering he used one of […]

MORE Propaganda introduces The Shoestrung

September 2nd, 2010 by Andrzej MORE Propaganda introduces The Shoestrung

So, I've planned blogs before and even maintained a couple for brief periods of time, but this time the idea is that I am going to post a new picture here every day and probably write some kind of comment to go along with it. This picture of The Shoestrung was taken last year during […]
