These are some stills from director David Garcia’s upcoming documentary film, which I worked on as the cinematographer. We spent three weeks traveling up the east coast from Miami to New York, speaking with people about the current epidemic of workplace injuries and deaths involving temporary workers.

Seiko 5 Modifications

I’ve been shopping around for an affordable automatic watch and recently come across a community of enthusiasts who modify Seiko 5 automatics. Swapping out everything from the dials and hands to the bezels and crystals, the modders turn the rather plain stock watches into pretty unique pieces. Here are a couple of my favorite examples.

A relic from my past - I wore this patch on my uniform blazer for the last two years of high school. The school is well known for having one of the strangest mascots imaginable: The Winged Beaver. 

The story behind the icon, though it is likely apocryphal, goes back to the founding of the school by one Theodate Pope Riddle, Lusitania survivor and one of America’s first female architects. As the story has it, Riddle was torn between selecting an eagle and a beaver as the school’s symbol, and as she had a propensity for opium use, she simply decided to split the difference.

On 7 February 2014, polar explorers Ben Saunders and Tarka L’Herpiniere completed a 105-day 1795 mile round-trip traverse of the Antarctic continent from Robert Falcon Scott’s Terra Nova hut to the South Geographic Pole. Carrying nearly four months’ worth of supplies in fiberglass sledges, the duo live-blogged the expedition to the pole. Their dispatches can be found at scottexpedition.com.

These images are among my favorites from the journey: the figures’ and gear’s bright colors stand out against the endless snow and ice.

Although I have a particular affinity for Boston’s Tuukka Rask, it has recently come to my attention that Swiss goaltender Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks has the best masks in hockey. Designed and executed by Airxess of Bern, Switzerland, the masks stand out against a medium defined by snarling beasts and tattoo-parlor graphics - not surprising when you consider that both Hiller and Airxess hail from the country responsible for the typeface Helvetica. It does seem a shame to shoot pucks at them though.
