jun-11alright alright alright. it is now officially summer — the humidity has finally gotten here so we can get all sweaty and dripping and live this southern life the way it is supposed to be lived. without humidity, what do you have? california. and who wants that. go tomorrow night to the barn jam and smell the pines, eat some food and dance the night away. right on!

RIP Norman Lorusso 1951-2014

noeman-lorussoMy longtime friend, father, husband and amazing photographer, Norman Lorusso passed away last night after a short battle with leukemia. norman was a french canadian by birth and moved to the lowcountry around the mid 80′s. i met him around that time and we collaborated on many, many projects. he was a one of kind dude, didnt take shit off nobody but also would never say a bad word about anyone. he was an eternal optimist, a lighting magician and was a relentless when it came to getting “the shot”. he never said no to any pro bono work and continued shooting and generating ideas til the end. he is survived by his amazing wife Chris, and there equally amazing children, Kai and Magenta. there will be a celebration of his life real soon, so stay posted. peace and love. g   –   ps: the photograph above was shot in 1969 in toronto, canada at the grateful dead concert from the festival express tour. norman photographed the dead during that concert – up close and personal – he was 18 at time. i will post some of those shots periodically in the coming days. he would like that. rest in peace pal.
