Aaron Brown
A Suicide Note For Life

SPA006 / 56 PAGES / EDITION OF 150

$45

Aaron Brown is an LA-based director and photographer, who collaborates under the URL Focus Creeps. The journalistic images in "A Suicide Note For Life" present cultural interludes, timely happenstances and deadpan ephemera alongside universalist, self-help one-liners. Detached poise connects disparate imagery and together, the juxtapositions demonstrate that universals can't always account for the beautiful or tragic details of a single moment.

The Killing Season

SPA003 / 112 PAGES / EDITION OF 150

Jerry Hsu’s debut solo publication, The Killing Season, chronicles Hsu’s off-putting 3-week motorcycle ride across Vietnam. In the midst of narrowly avoiding death, breaking a rib, and making the 1,100 mile trek through constant downpour, Hsu was compelled to discover beauty. The photographs capture simultaneous moments of purity and human behavior. It is a documentation of dangerously careless speed, drifting along the highway, and living without regrets.
