Based in San Francisco, Baltimore, and NYC, we sat down with Waters in the summer of 2010, just when his book Role Models was being released, and his last show at Rena Bransten Gallery in SF was opened.

Aside from acting and writing books, the dude also takes photographs. Jeff Bridges gives us a unique view into the world he grew up in and from a perspective we rarely get to see: from an actor on set. Bridges uses a Widelux camera for most of the images because he says that it is the closest to what the human eye can see. "I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all the strange sources of light on set."

In the 1960s at the height of the space race during the Cold War, a grade school science teacher named Edward Makuka Nkolso headed up the newly independent Zambia's space program at an old farmhouse. Nkoloso was serious and applied for a £7M grant from UNESCO and assembled a crew including a 17-year-old girl and two cats. The story inspired photographer Christina de Middel's series Afronauts and now filmmaker Frances Bodomo to shoot a short film. Watch the trailer after the jump...
