Sneak Peek | Goa, India

Goa India-1

Just a quick image from Goa, in southern India, where I’m currently on my second assignment of the year. The weather couldn’t be nicer and the people couldn’t be more beautiful. I’m looking forward to the week. More later from various travels. But for now, the sun is calling.

Happy Holidays Everyone

So turns out I don’t have any super cool quirky fun pictures of Santa or Christmas trees or naked elves or anything like that, but to kind of lazily be a part of the festive season, here’s something red & green from my archives. Happy Holidays to everyone. Thanks for sticking around and making this big stupid thing worth while. I’m excited about next year. See you then.

From India | Sula Clothing SS2016

Sula Fashion Photography SS2016 01

India smells like burning. Like the crush of a billion people. Like oils and incense and rose water and stale puddles and drying paint and toasted spices. Like body odor and fresh grass and simmering curries. Like everything and all of it all at once. It smells like colors and sunshine too. Like a loud joyful scream. It does something tangible to you. The world there exists in technicolor. In song. In smiles and bobbling heads. It’s filthy and annoying and beautiful and one of my favorite places in the world to work. I was lucky enough to get back a few weeks ago to Kerala to shoot the most recent SS2016 collection from Sula Clothing. Check it out. And get yourself to India already.

It feels appropriate to start off the new year with a post on one of my favorite clients, Sula Clothing. I’ve worked with Alison and Trang on Sula’s collections for three years now, and every shoot feels better and more creative than the last. We’ve traveled all over northern Vietnam together in the past, but this time we stayed a bit closer to home, in Hanoi. Here are a few outtakes from the day.

Thanks to the great folks at INK Publishing for trusting me with yet another amazing travel story. This time on Hanoi’s rising fashion scene. I was able to profile several friends and photograph a bunch of beautiful people in a bunch of beautiful clothes. Too easy, really. As always and until next time, you can see more tearsheets on my website.

I was recently interviewed about my Prison Fight photographs by JOIA Magazine, a fine art publication out of Chile in South America. I love the layouts and the minimalist designs. It’s always nice to see editors and art directors doing great things with photography. Makes me super happy. So thanks to Alvaro and his team. Keep up the amazing work; I’m honored to be part of the current issue.

TIME | Quang Tri Outtakes

TIME Chuck Searcy 01

I just wanted to post a few outtakes from my recent TIME magazine assignment in Quang Tri, central Vietnam. It was only a two-page spread with two images used, but I spent a full two days shooting, and I got to see some pretty amazing things while on the job, including a bomb removal from a local village, a few stops at the homes of families who were being helped by Chuck’s programs, and a pretty awesome white phosphorous fireworks display in the middle of an empty stretch of sand near the coast. Here’s the story again, for those who missed it the first time around: War to Peace.
