Posted in Action Photos!, Issue Nineteen with tags , , on February 5, 2012 by mohawko

Photographic fractals– a frat party, a blurry subway ride, the ankles and calfs of friend and stranger alike– are all that remain of our nineteenth issue, written by Casey Hannan and worn by David Meyers around New York City. All exude warmth, a joyous and cozy context for Casey ‘s generous story.

others who are not so close


best friendz

“Kiss him. Kiss your best friend.”
