Born in Berkeley, CA, Tobin Yelland picked up photography at an early age with a focus on his immediate surroundings—the subculture and lifestyle of skateboarding. First published in Thrasher Magazine at age 15, Yelland's work has since expanded beyond the world of skateboarding to become a collection of images that lend voice to an entire generation, transcending many locales and social identities. He and Keith Hufnagel first met while shooting skate photos together in the early 1990s in New York City, and later lived together as roommates in Tobin’s Glen Park house in San Francisco along with Mickey Reyes in the mid 90s

Parks Project is a brand that proposes to use their business to help solve some of the problems facing our parks. "It all started a few years ago, when we joined up with the National Park Service to do volunteer days," they told us. "We learned there was much more to do in supporting our public lands during a time of budget cuts and low youth involvement. According to the NPCA there has been more than a 7%, or $173 million reduction in the account to operate national parks and more than a 12%, or $364 million reduction in the total budget for the National Park Service over the last five years in today’s dollars. Ouch. Could we use business to solve problems in our parks?

Geoff McFetridge grabs my attention. At the local coffee and surf shop a few months back, a mural of Geoff’s work went up, a static mapping of his already brilliant animation about the impressive 100% traceable down standard Patagonia employs for their uber-popular products. The animation got us thinking, not only about the way brands communicate with consumers, but also how the brands we wear everyday wear on the world around us.

We’re entranced with multidisciplinary artist Holly Sillius’ elaborate makeup shoots. Sillius uses nontraditional makeup materials to create radical color pallettes or sculpural objects out of faces. In her Under the Skin series, she pastes leather collages onto faces, playing with textural representations and shades of the skin beneath.
