Aaron and Danny finally brought the dude cruise to shore this past weekend. After nearly 3 years of filming each other and all of their friends with that silly little HD, they opened their hearts to the world and let everyone in for a peek.
“washed up before we were has beens” It was good. And the other 349 people there must have thought the same. When the intro started, people bum rushed the front like a justin beiber concert. Just wanted to say hats off to whole Obscura crew. Your hard work and good times were apparent. I’m proud of you to say the least.
I had the pleasure of traveling with them on many of their escapades through the dirty south. We followed that asphalt with our hearts and lost our minds. I captured a lot of photos along the way and unveiled them at the premiere the other night. All film, no action, no color… just the journey, not the destination. I printed 50 5×7’s, stuck them to the bricks and let people ride along with us.
Here’s some pics from the other night. Thanks to Patrick Wieland for snapping a couple pics of the wall. I completely forgot. And thanks to my right hand man, Ian Reid, as well. He shot some great portraits of everyone who walked through the door. I thought I’d share a few of those too.
Here’s the wall:
And here’s a closer look at the pics that were chosen to print…
And here’s some fun ones from the night (taken by Ian)
