This is Sean Gin. I found him when I put out a call for an intern. Much to my surprise, he turned out not to be a crazy psychopath like everyone else on the internet. The only thing crazy about him is his talent. Like me, he studied art at a fancy, pushy, competitive university and, like me, he has perfect taste in everything all the time. He is a very talented photographer I fell in love with his series of square format photographs of California. They take a strangely removed, alienated view of California that is still gorgeous and enthralling. The images give me an “I want to go there but I’m scared” feeling. Shot all over the Golden State, these photographs capture a quiet, lonely, beautiful world.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. In fact, I command you to enjoy them. Right this very minute! Enjoy the rest of your week!
