Captivating photos by David Benjamin Ferry

Pepi Ginsberg of Companion Reader Find

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Photography on Wednesday 30 January 2013

I don’t remember where I first saw David Benjamin Ferry’s images, maybe at Dashwood Books, an amazing bookstore on Bond St in London. His artwork is incredibly vivid and captivating, somewhere between childhood fantasy and adult visions of ecstasy.

Nick Van Woert’s sculptural work

Pepi Ginsberg of Companion Reader Find

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Art on Wednesday 23 January 2013

I found out about Nick Van Woert about two years ago and was immediately intrigued by his work. As happens, time, work, and other distractions interrupted my curiosity and I fell off of following Van Woert’s art and progress. Recently, his name popped in my head and I revisited his website and was amazed by what I saw. I can safely say this is some of the most thoughtful, beautiful and inspiring work I’ve seen in some time. He seems to have an abundance of ideas, so clever and so well executed, I could look his sculptures for days and still find something new to be excited about.

Jason Nocito photographs a love-letter for his wife

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Photography on Wednesday 16 January 2013

I found out about Jason Nocito a couple of months ago through a photographer friend and I’ve been in love with his work ever since. When I looked him up, I hadn’t realized he had been responsible for some music photography that I had already been a fan of – I believe he shoots a lot for Fader. His personal projects, however, are what really get me. His most recent book, I Heart Transylvania, is a document of a long-distance relationship with his now wife, who at the time, lived in Vancouver. The whole book is a love-letter, and he captures such an incredible essence of both his subject, and his spaces, through light and movement. I’m such a fan.

New music by Hubble

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Music on Saturday 12 January 2013

I heard about Hubble, Ben Greenberg (ex member of Z’s), through friends, and was always curious but somehow never caught him live. I was finally lucky enough to witness Hubble in the flesh a few weeks back at the very unfortunate closing of Zebulon, one of my favorite clubs. I was mesmerized by Greenberg’s set. […]

The Fall: new music video from Rhye

Pepi Ginsberg of Companion Reader Find

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Music on Thursday 3 January 2013

I really love this Daniel Kragh-Jacobsen directed music video for the band Rhye. Music videos are a tricky thing. In their best incarnations, all the stars align and you get a gorgeous result where the narrative of the film and the song are in sync. Everything works in this collaboration. And while there’s something simple […]

I Used To Be Darker: a new film by Matt Porterfield

Pepi Ginsberg of Companion Reader Find

By Pepi Ginsberg of Companion in New Film on Friday 28 December 2012

A long time ago, in the days of Myspace, I sent Matt my music, early solo recordings, because I thought what he was making was really beautiful. I was lucky enough to meet him a few times in New York and since then I have followed his work, as it’s grown to expand both visually […]
