Truly one of the geekiest things we have ever seen, but done oh so well. Galactic Empire State of Mind:
March 29, 2010We are fortunate enough to have a real pro judge our photo contest this month. Vivian Hsu, from Vivian Hsu Photography is one of the most talented photographers we have ever seen. Check out her blog HERE and a couple of her pics from her freestyle collection below.
What inspired you to start working with b-boys/b-girls?
I was still in photography school and decided that I wanted to photograph a dancer for one of my final projects. I wanted the challenge of shooting a moving, vivid form. Once I had the chance to work with a bboy, my love for the craft and culture grew immensely.
How does photographing breakers compare to photographing other subjects?
It's very challenging because a breaker's form is constantly changing, so I am, in turn, constantly having to refocus and recompose my photograph to capture each movement. Unless, of course, they're posing for me, then it's boring. Just kidding.
What is your favorite food and why?
My very favorite food is my mom's cooking! No explanation needed. But I will explain anyways. My mom's food is the best Taiwanese food in the whole wide world!!! That's why I steal all her recipes and cook for my friends, and then take all the credit. Top three dishes: pot stickers, seafood hot pot, and egg rolls.
Without spending it on anyone else, what would you do with a million dollars?
I would buy a Delorean with a flux capacitor that goes 88 miles per hour. Then I would go back in time and change the world.
What will you be looking for in the winner of the f-rock photo contest?
You'll score big points with me if you can take a picture of your reflection in a bathroom mirror with your cell phone camera. But if you want to win, send in a photograph that tells a story. Good lighting, color, and composition doesn't hurt, either.

March 22, 2010 Featured Artist Pose
Hailing from the Windy City, Pose made his first attempt at graffiti in 1992. Since then he has added a multitude of contributions to the Graff game and set out to conquer every medium visual art has to offer; on and off the streets. An aesthetic chameleon and jack of all creative trades, Pose enjoys abusing the alphabet, pomade, cold steel and the triumph of originality. [Knowngallery.com]
