Last week Crankworx rolled into town and with came the Deep Summer Photo Challenge. Stacked with some of the best mountain photographers, including my partner in crime from STAND, Nicolas Teichrob, Garrett Grove, Harookz, Scott Markewitz whom I assisted last year, wildcard Duncan Philpott and good friend Bruno Long. Earlier in the year Bruno had asked if I might help edit his slide show. After having so much fun being a part of it last year with Scott, I agreed immediately. Bruno's idea sounded really interesting and I thought we could put a good show together.
His concept was a play on the advent of Instagram and a tribute to the past. Over the three days of shooting Bruno employed some old school techniques, shooting on Polaroid, and a Diane alongside his DSLR. The outcome was some really unique images that saluted the early days of both mountain biking and the documentation of it.
On Monday night Bruno arrived at my
house and we set about arranging his photos into a show that would
get people stoked.
The event showcased 6 really solid shows and it wasn't at all clear who would take the check. In the end Nic claimed the crown. (You can watch his show here.)
