Design Bureau, Issue 10: Sharchitecture

February 29, 2012 in Photography

Thank you Design Bureau for giving me another awesome assignment!  For this project, I was asked to photograph the very cool and talented, Designer/Builder, Jacob Shapiro, from Sharchitecture.  Jacob’s workshop is in a building I am all too familiar with!  Several years ago, I assisted a photographer who’s studio was on the top floor-I have to admit, I don’t miss carrying someone else’s gear up four flights of stairs!  You can imagine how relieved I was to learn Sharchitecture is on the first floor!:)  It was a lot of fun to spend a morning at the shop with Jacob and his team-every time I turned around there was another fantastic design element just begging to be photographed!  Keep an eye out for some of his current projects to appear at Wormhole Coffee in Wicker Park and the French Market in Ogilvie Station. In the meantime, check out a few of my favs from the day!:

Cherri Rokkett-Quality you can taste!

Coming soon on PINK VINYL (!!!!!), Chicago’s own, Cherri Rokkett-Quality you can taste!!!!!!!!

It seems most appropriate I post this now-I just returned from a fantastic trip to LA, part of which was spent on the Sunset Strip!  This trip helped fill in the last piece of the puzzle; I can finally say I’ve officially met ALL the members of Cherri Rokkett!!!:)

I’m sorry to say I missed the Rokkett during their pyrotechnic & spandex filled debut-I was in Middle School, in Michigan,  probably listening to The Cure and The Smiths.:)

Where were YOU in 1988????
