SHELLAC SHOOT -LA, Joshua Tree, Vegas, back to LA

Here are some photos of SHELLAC spring/summer 09 shoot, all taken by Hiromi Otsuka (thanks!) - she is a project coordinator + much more --- we've been working together for years, and this will no doubt be the best SHELLAC catalogue so far (if editing part works out of course ...)

The whole ROAD TRIP experience was great, we drove from Los Angeles to Joshua Tree, slept in Pioneer Town old school motel, drove to Las Vegas via Route 66 (doesn't really exist anymore, but some parts are still there), checked a bunch of abandoned gas stations, creepy empty houses by the road, motels etc etc. Good stuff.

I hate Las Vegas. That city embodies everything I hate about the US ... everything there is about money, sex, drugs, and everything is just WRONG. We stayed at CAESAR'S PALACE, where you get HUGE room for cheap (they assume you'd spend money gambling), so assholes from who knows where come and feel like king.
A bunch of douchebag zombies going from casino to casino, fat Midwestern couples, coked up taxi drivers, strip bars everywhere, aaaaaaaaaagh. You're just a walking dollar sign, everyone wants your money.
And then there is the old part of Las Vegas, equally depressing, with old motels, empty swimming pools and toothless crystal meth addicts.

We're back in LA now, film processing will be done tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow I'm off to NY ------> can't wait to go home, sick of traveling, jet-legs, hotels and airports (but hey, I'm not complaining, I still have the best job in the world)
