Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos: Just Enjoy the Moments

Every week, photographer Joshua Cobos shoots a roll of film just for us. He picks the 13 best photos and we post them here, and it’s called “Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos.” Here’s what Joshua has to say about this week’s installment:

All of these images are of objects in plain sight, I imagine. Nothing posed, nothing directed. Just long walks with an old U.S. army issued Canonet. There is truth in simplicity, one of the main motivators in my photography. A protest march, a friend’s tattoo, abandoned theaters on the main drag, the modern hotel fireplace in stunning HD. I question society’s directives & morals all the time, are we enlightened by technology or depraved. Through these walks & all the witnessed beauty, I put the big questions aside and just enjoy the moments.

Thanks, Joshua! Ten more shots after the jump:

    That photo of the styrofoam mission is from one of the most anachronistic offices I’ve ever seen. It’s in the Sunset on Irving around 22nd or 23rd, and the only signs it has are for the name of the person who owns the spot. No indication of what they do, or for why their office looks like it’s from an 80′s drug movie.
