The Burning House Book

I started the Burning House project in late April of 2011.  At the time,  I was living and working in New York City.  The idea quickly grew from a day dream on a subway ride home from a party to a tumblr site a few weeks later.  The blog grew quickly and a month later,  I signed a contract with !t Books to turn the idea into a book and an online series with Anthropologie.  In August of 2011, I took this money,  I bought a van, put in my notice in at Polo and left New York to work on the project from the road.

As much as being something nice to look at, my hope for the Burning House Project, and the book in particular, is to prompt a discussion on materialism.  For the next four months,  I traversed the western US looking for people that wouldn’t normally see the Tumblr.  I talked to a hermit in southern Colorado, a retired postal worker on the central coast of California and a weed trimmer in Humboldt County.  Heading out on the road and meeting people to photograph let me focus on expanding the point of view represented in the book as well as get back to surfing and camping. With a whirlwind finish that included five days straight at a coffee shop in Hood River Oregon,  I turned in the manuscript on time in the middle of November.

The book came out on July 10th, or a 14 months to the day after the tumblr launched.  I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to work on this project and am thrilled with people’s response. The Burning House is available at a brick and mortar stores like Boarders, Urban Outfitters and Powells books in portland and online on Amazon.  Thank you for all of your support.

#vanlife

Like live canaries in a mine,  a high concentration of vans in an area suggests good things.  Adventure,  free spirits and exploration.  Parked on side streets, some of these vans lay waiting for a long weekend or a the occasional road trip.  For others,  these streets provide a safe harbor away from the watchful eye of the area’s finest.  They all dream of the open road.

Portland Oregon has a lot of vans.  Over the last few weeks,  I have been stopping and snapping shots of vans that catch my eye.  Here are some of my favorites.

Red stripe.

Syncro love.

Hippies.

Warriors.

Hunters.

Pinstripe.

V-8.

Tiger style.

Business in the front,  party in the back. Mullet.

Syncro love.

There is a lot of green going on here.  Both outside and inside I’d wager.

Fall Colors.

Two tone.

Mobile command station. VanRAD

To celebrate vans like these and the notion that, “Home is where you park it,” I have started a new tumblr called #vanlife. #Vanlife will be composed of my van shots and submissions,  so if you have a van or  see a one or another ship of the open road, take a picture and submit it here.

The Burning House and The Anthropologist

A project I worked on based on the Burning House is now up on the The Anthropologist.   For the project, I connected with 20 people from Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts and photographed their things.  The project was a blast and I am really proud of how it turned out.  Take a look here.
