Every week, photographer Joshua Cobos shoots a roll of film just for us. He picks the best 13 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:
I’d been saving a roll of Portra 800 in my fridge for too long. A friend let me know that she was on spring break and she’d never been to the SFMOMA before so I took her there on a quiet Tuesday afternoon. The Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra has a retrospective up now. She’s been a strong inspiration of mine since I first viewed her work last winter. A contemporary female artist that is constantly pushing psychological barriers, heavy and emotionally compelling photographs shot on film. This series also includes a walk through the Haight with DJ Jackie Sugarlumps, in my opinion the vinyl queen of San Francisco. Fellow photographer Amy Harrity also joined me on a jaunt through some of the Richmond’s storefront aquariums, sneaking around dark and damp hallways snapping photos and doing our best not to get kicked out.
Thanks, Joshua! Ten more shots after the jump:
