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. Here’s what Joshua has to say about this week’s spread:
Beauty and muses are difficult concepts for me sometimes. Muses by their nature are not permanent so I’m constantly coming to a crossroad where people are coming and going out of my life as they please. Beauty on the other hand can be quite subjective. I’ve known many muses that desire to work with as many artists as possible so they can see all the different reflections and interpretations of themselves. On the rare occasion, I myself have been a muse for an artist. It’s rewarding and a momentary relief from the stress of work and reality.
