A Beginner’s Guide to Jason Nocito
Jason Nocito is an insanely talented and prolific photographer who, if you know anything about photography, you should already know about. He takes about a million cool photographs a day, and he needed some place to put them all, so he started a photoblog, LOADS Daily, on his website. Since he updates it all the time (some might say “daily”), there are a lot of weird and beautiful photos of neon puddles, dirty mops, and inadvertent faces to sift through. Since we know you’re so busy, Jason told us he would put together his favorites from this past month in a more easily digestible form. Consider it a beginner’s guide to the world of Jason Nocito. You’re welcome.
Jason Nocito, our bearded photographer-genius friend, has a new photoshow opening this Thursday in San Fransisco. Entitled “I Heart Transylvania,” the show features work Jason made over a four year time span, mostly shot in beautiful (or not so, you be the judge) Vancouver, British Columbia. It seems that Jason met and fell in love with a young nursing student and made these photos on his repeated trips back to the city to see her. You can see Meghan, his lady friend, in many of the photos, along with bathtubs, graveyards, and snowy roads and beaches. All together, they paint a abstractly-personal portrait (but one many of us can relate to) about how great it is to love someone and how much it sucks when he or she lives far away. Go to the show!
The “I Heart Transylvania” Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, November 15, 6-9 PM
