Gordon Holden's Rhode Island
It's a little hard to hype up Gordon Holden's photography. He doesn't take pictures of people on fire in warzones, heavy metal cowboys from Botswana or hulking, dilapidated post-space age architecture. But the pictures he does snare from around his home in Rhode Island are calm, occasionally nonsensical, and should be eerily familiar to anyone who grew up in the suburbs. I've never been to Rhode Island, but browsing through this set of pictures he just sent us, I can't help but feel a strange affection for this place I've heard so much about on TV and imagined wasting time in while listening to bands like Real Estate and The Replacements. Maybe you get that too, maybe you don't—either way, these photos are fucking great.
Gordon is also an artist and product designer of sorts, so if you are on the hunt for fun T-shirts and customized skateboards you might wanna try this. And if you're not, still take a look at the gallery above, his website, or his blog because his work is beautiful.
