Every now and then, photographer Joshua Cobos shoots a roll of film just for us, picks his 13 favorites, and we publish them here and it’s called “Bad Blood.” It used to be weekly but it’s become more sporadic since Joshua’s move to Los Angeles a few months back. He still comes back to SF every chance he gets (which is great for all of us) but regardless of where he shoots his rolls, it’s always a joy to get a peek inside his process with each new edition. This edition, as you can see, finds Joshua back in SF for a spell (woohoo!):
The Thrift Town photo is purely an homage to the times I spent there looking for anything and nothing, to Teen Witch who I know loves that place. The place kind of served as a reminder that the city was slowly changing. Over the years I lived there I watched the price of thrift rise. At first slowly, then to a point where clothing and used electronics became indistinguishable in price from the antique / vintage stores in the mission. Thrift Town and stuff left out on the street by San Franciscans is how I decorated my apartments. These photos were shot over a four day trip I took to SF at the beginning of June.
