Julian Wasser started his career in photography in the Washington DC bureau of the Associated Press where he met and accompanied the famous news photographer Weegee – who would become a lasting influence on him. In the mid-60s Wasser moved to Los Angeles as a contract photographer for TIME, LIFE, and FORTUNE magazines and becoming internationally known as the go to guy for getting candid but memorably composed photographs. (His iconic images of Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston; Marcel Duchamp and Eve Babitz; and a young Jodie Foster are already classics.)

Hey everyone one! Blur is back. That may be big news for some, in our office we are pretty sure one member of the staff was quite happy. Blur's members were busy for the past 12 years, Damon Albarn doing all sorts of projects, one being the highly successful Gorillaz. The last time we saw Blur, they had a Banksy-designed LP called Think Tank. On April 12, 2015, they will release The Magic Whip, and have a lyric-video for the song "Go Out."
