Ken Davis’ studio is covered with skateboard decks, shelves of records, and reference books as an ode to the tangible. He prefers to have these items as a reminder to slow down.

Josh Marcotte creator of Lost San Jose, a popular photojournalistic blog which documents his wandering spirit and explores his profound connection with the city his family has called home for four generations. Part urban explorer, part night photographer, as well as writer and historian, he seamlessly blends his poetic view into his art form, creating profound images that cause even a local to pause and think: “Where is this?”
