On a recent assignment for The Scout magazine I visited Josh Vogel and Kelly Zaneto of Blackcreek Mercantile and Trading Co. in their studio in Kingston, NY. I got to do what I like best - shoot a mixture of portraits and reportage, letting moments happen naturally.
The sculptural, sensual wood pieces he creates from raw found wood are just stunning in person. Definitely check them out in person if you get the chance.
Josh is the real deal - a fine artist without pretensions just making his work, using his hands everyday. There is no separation between craft and art in my book.
A mushroom grew unexpectedly out of the crack in a large sculpture that sits in the corner of the studio!
