Twitter, among other things, has been the greatest tool for discovering new talents here at Cargoh.

 

Just last week, our good friend Alex Asher Sears sent us a link to Dina Goldstein's photo series "Fallen Princesses". Although it has been around for a couple years, it had never crossed our desks. Not sure how that happened there, but we're super happy to have found it now!

 

The Tel Aviv born photographer makes her home in Vancouver, and shoots in exotic locations all over the world. We had a chance to catch up with her last week, and dig a little deeper into "Fallen Princesses".

 

Cargoh: Tell us a little about your history as a photographer. Where did you get your start?

Dina: I...

Look, there are plenty of super talented photographers from all over the world. With technology getting smarter, photographers are getting better and better at pushing the boundaries of what is possible. This morning I was introduced to Erik Johansson, from Sweden. 

His portfolio actually made me uneasy. Like my eyes couldn't quite figure out what they were looking at. Does not compute!

The Leica M9 Limited Edition is nicely wrapped in Ostrich Leather and boasts all the awesome features of the regular M9, like 18 megapixel 35mm full frame capabilities and the regular sturdy Leica body. But before you rush out and buy one, you might wanna make sure you have $10,526 in your bank account, because that's what it'll cost you......if you can find one!

Remember that time in your life when, as a kid, you'd find that beach, or part of the forest, or river that would inevitably become the home to some of your fondest memories. That magical place that will forever be linked to that "coming of age" summer where all you did was hang out with your friends, get into trouble, and stare at that one girl who's smile would take away any bit of coolness you ever thought you had.

Mine was a small forest called "Rushmere". It was on the outskirts of our townhouse complex in South Africa, where my friends and I would spend hours, days, weeks exploring the creek beds, climbing the trees, and cutting down bamboo to make awesome bow and arrows. Then there was the one day we were both rushed to hospital because we thought wearing all the clothes we owned and trying to get honey from a beehive was a good idea.

All you photographers out there......listen up! Our good friends over at "This is East Van" are changing the game with their new community photography project. "This is East Van" is a community photo project that aims to collect photos from local photographers and compile them in a self published book that captures what's happening in the most vibrant corner of Vancouver right now! THIS IS EAST VAN BITCHES!!

 

We had a chance to catch up with Erin and Jason, and ask them a few questions about their newest hustle!

Cargoh: So, tell us a little bit about your project?

Erin:  (After a little deliberation about who is going to answer the first question..)"This is East Van" is a community photo project that Jason and I put out into the world using social media tools like twitter and facebook almost 3 weeks...
