Every year photographer, Morgan Maassen gives us a special glimpse into his world travels through the lens of his iPhone. It is ironic that these quick, raw cuts of his year on the road spent with surfers, models and a never-ending slew of random weirdos inspires us to get out and travel way more than any picturesque, perfectly composed nature shot could. Enjoy.www.morganmaassen.com
Welcome to our new 27 Frames series. We sent 27 single use cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results. These 27 Frames belong to Meg Haywood Sullivan, AKA the most interesting woman in the world. Meg is a photographer, environmentalist and outdoor adventurer who inspires us to venture out, to respect nature, to live a healthy, natural and more free lifestyle through her beautiful work. As someone who has lived the majority of her life on the road searching for the next adventure, Meg’s photography reflects that idealistic, nomadic outdoor lifestyle we all dream of.FULL STORY
In Volume 10: “Strange Daze In A Hanoi Haze” we catch up with Roark in the steamy waterways and country roads of Vietnam. Fresh off a stint in Nepal, he seeks R&R in a land filled with evolving promise and the ever-present stains of war. Once again conflict rises within his minds eye as he seeks out freedom and the reconciliation of the pictures created by politicians, war films and the 1960’s anti-war movement. The collection spans four phases of Roark’s voyage: The chaos of Hanoi, the North Vietnamese countryside by motorcycle convoy, Ha Long Bay by Junque Boat, and the long trek to Da Nang. It’s inspired by cash crops, the psychedelics of war and peace, traditional Vietnamese textiles and the beauty of the lands waterways. The garments are sweat-stained, dirty and well worn. Join Roark and crew as they explore new dimensions and find peace amongst chaos and freedom.www.roarkrevival.com
Rob Kulisek is hands down one of our favorite photographers here at Indoek. We first took note of his work being featured at Saturdays NYC, in Man of The World and Vogue, since then he has shot for numerous other publications and brands we hold in high regard. His style is both subtle and sophisticated, he has an eye for composition and lighting that is developed and refined way beyond his years. A young man of few words from the Garden State and a natural behind the lens (and on a surfboard), Rob is somewhat of an enigma. We are especially pleased to have him involved in the 27 Frames project as Rob is not a surf photographer, but an amazing photographer who happens to surf. In case you are just tuning in to this new series, the concept is simple: we sent 27 single use cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results.

Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman, the design duo behind 40 Days of Dating are at it again with a new beautifully designed social experiment. Two self-centered New Yorkers, often focused on what’s ahead instead of what’s around them, created a series of 12 steps as a way to become kinder, more empathetic people. As a resolution, they practiced this for 12 months. Check out the inspiring site here:www.12kindsofkindness.com
The beauty is in the craft.
Ever since I saw 180º South, Jeff Johnson has been a personal hero of mine. If you have not seen the flick already, I strongly recommend you stop reading this article and watch it immediately. It will likely change your life – or at the very least inspire you to get off your ass and see more of this beautiful planet. That said, we are truly stoked that Jeff, a longtime staff photographer for Patagonia agreed to participate in the 27 Frames project. In case you are just tuning in to this new series, the concept is simple: we sent 27 single use (disposable) cameras out to some of our favorite photographers, they shot stuff with it, then mailed it back to us. We developed the film and are sharing the results with you (and the photographers) now. In this instant, digital age, we want to pay homage to a snapshot photo process we grew up with ourselves — waiting for the film to develop and being surprised by the results. These 27 Frames belong to Jeff Johnson.FULL STORY

I have been a huge fan of Nick’s work for many years now, to me he has always captured what it truly means to be an east coast surfer (from the northeast specifically). His images are raw, natural, and intimate. He has the unique ability to put you in the scene and make you really feel the elements depicted. Cheesy, but true. The surf community in the northeast is still relatively small and Nick has always been that friend of a friend, but we’d never met face to face. It wasn’t until recently that our physical paths finally crossed and we met in person. When we heard about his new eco-friendly home being built up in Maine, featuring him in a Surf Shacks article was a no-brainer. Getting a photographer up there to shoot it was a bigger challenge though. Luckily for us, Nick is a professional and an all around stand up guy, so he ended up shooting this feature himself – how’s that for a selfie!FULL STORY
