I was outside The Masonic Lodge in Streetsville, Ontario, Canada last fall having a smoke and chatting with my pal. He was about to head in and play with his band as they were all dressed up as 1950s Greasers. I shot this on the fly and it wasn’t staged nor did I think anything of it as I shot it. Just kind of caught my eye but I didn’t think it turned out well. When I got home and checked the RAW, I had a smile on my face. Here is the end result. Quite pleased with it. Love his expression and stance. Click the image to view a larger version and to view the high quality version head over to my website http://www.adampulicicchio.com/people
Found this Moscow based photographer Mercuro B. Cotto a while back as I was checking out My Modern Metropolis. Really love the colours and tones and emotion in the first photo. The colours and mood as well as location of the second photo really pop. Love both. Check out more of his work at http://mecurobcotto.com All images are Copyright © Mercuro B. Cotto
Katy Perry stars in the latest issue of Interview Magazine, channeling Elizabeth Taylor. Photographed by Mikael Jansson. Styling by Karl Templer.
When I saw this series I lit up. Surprisingly I am not not a huge fan of Katy Perry visually or musically - shocking eh? I was just more impressed and in love with the high ISO and the black/white tone of it. Look at all that grain! I am a big fan of noise and grain while most aren’t. Things don’t have to be so sharp and bright and crisp and this series goes to show you that! As well as it did it super well. Love the mood and atmosphere.

‘Jimi Hendrix : Voodoo Child’ - 40 years after Jimi Hendrix’s death on September 18th 1970, this film tells Jimi Hendrix’s life story in his own words and is narrated by funk legend Bootsy Collins in the soft, authoritative voice of Hendrix himself.
Blending archive footage, artefacts, news archive and rare performance footage, director Bob Smeaton’s film takes us from Hendrix’s childhood in Seattle, through his spell in the army and on to his time on the chitlin circuit backing the likes of the Isley Brothers and Little Richard, his ‘discovery’ by ex-Animal Chas Chandler in New York, the formation of the Experience in the UK and his launch and instant popstardom in London in 1966, his stellar festival appearances at Monterey and Woodstock, his artistic progression, his last British concert at the end of August 1970 at the Isle of Wight Festival and his tragic death in Notting Hill, choked on his own vomit and red wine.
The amount of footage in this documentary is unreal. Great story telling of a incredibly talented individual. I was blown away at the details I was learning about his life and career as well as the awesome concert footage. Really worth a watch for any music fan.
Shot this maybe a year or two ago. One foggy night. The light from the lamp post is blown right out making it seem larger than life. Surprised I’m not distracted by it and actually quite like it. Plus I’m a sucker for grain/high iso in photos especially black and white ones. Anyways, enjoy !
One of my earlier photos. Not a fan of product stuff but this one turned out quite well. I like the grain and the black white feeling to it with the gold trim making the logo pop. Just feels that the tones and textures in the photo go well with the brand.
