Marshall Gordon’s work for the Idaho Potato Commisssion is in current Saveur, Bon Apetit, Martha Stewart magazines. Luscious shoot!
On a recent assignment in remote Ningxia province, I photographed the lifestyle of the culturally diverse locals. In the provincial capital Yinchuan, girls still find a way of keeping up with the latest fashions, even if that involves 70’s retro denim and elevating platformed sneakers. Everything old is new again, in which case, maybe this wave will resurface full circle in the West?
We shot earlier this week with Brian Kahle of Adventive Marketing, on a kid series for an upcoming web campaign. The loose theme was exploration, and we were working to some strong vibrant colors to match up with the branding. After a long hot summer here in Chicago it finally felt like a perfect summer day.
I was heading back to Chicago following a family event in Hilton Head, S.C. and stopped in Savannah to see the sights. I was desperately looking for one of those great southern characters, or some cool event or barbeque but just wasn’t connecting. Tick, tick, tick. What I couldn’t keep my eyes off were the trees, the unbelievable canopy in the historic area and just about everywhere else. I had a couple of my older kids along and one of them wanted to see that famous cemetery from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, so being the dutiful dad I tracked down Bonaventure and we shot a few pictures. It is a bit creepy, but in a cool southern way is the best I can describe it. A real aura.
