This year I took time out to go to the 8th Annual Roots Picnic at Festival Pier in Philadelphia. The day kicked off with Donn T & Marc E. Bassy on the Oasis and Harbor Stages, with King Britt, Afrika Bambaataa, & DJ Mustard rounding up the DJ sets. I found myself at the Pier Stage enjoying the music of the energetic hit makers Rae Sremmurd & the reggae talent Chronixx. With the sun setting and the cool breeze the night ended with A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, & closing down the stage was The Roots with Erykah Badu. Out of everyone I shot yesterday my favorite shots came during the set of A$AP Rocky. His energy resonated with the crowd the moment he hit the stage performing various songs from his catalog, such as 'Wild For the Night', 'Goldie', classic A$AP such as 'Peso', to newly released 'Lord Pretty Flaco Jodie 2'. Needless to say A$AP Rocky came through the Roots Picnic 2015 and shut it down! Purchase Rocky's newly released album 'At. Long. Last. ASAP.' Here.

For years my sister Madison has created wearable art that is so unique. It started as a hobby and escape from the 9-5. The more and more pieces she created and the less space she had to store them she realized it was time to share them with the rest of the world. In that instant, Naked Revelry was born... On every shoot something is bound to go wrong. (Problems with the venue, models don't show up, the weather, anything at all). March 6th, 2015 Was the day that everything simply "clicked". For years my sister Madison & I have driven past this small old time mechanic shop in South, NJ which looks like it's frozen in time. We walked in the day of the shoot expecting them to be reluctant of us using the space but to our surprise they were more than happy to accommodate our needs. Imagine being taken back to a past World War II Mechanic Shop... Same interior, same aesthetics, same work ethic. This was where we were. For 2 hours straight we share stories with the owners as we shot all around the shop. We were amazed at how clear the shots came out because 24 hours prior NJ was covered in 6 inches of snow.

The Exchange: Conversations in Arts Music & Culture
Our first conversation is with music icon Darryl "DMC" McDaniels from the internationally renowned, groundbreaking Hip-Hop group Run-D.M.C. McDaniels has been “devastatingly controlling” the microphone since 1981 and shows no sign of ever stopping. From the quintessential classics of “Sucker MC’s”, It’s Tricky”, “Rockbox” and “My Adidas” just to name a few, McDaniels along with group members Jospeh “Run” Simmons and Jason “Jam-Master Jay” Mizell, they helped bring a voice and a soundtrack of the urban streets of New York to a world hungry to hear what they had to say. A native New Yorker, McDaniels has stretched his influence far further than the realms of music. From his continuous charity work with children in the foster care and adoption system to his boundless expression though his artfully done comic books and graphic novels; Darryl McDaniels is a resounding example of how drive, heart and passion can change not only a life but the lives of others. He spoke with GRYSCL Entertainment at Universal Audenried Charter High School in South Philadelphia for a brief moment before addressing an auditorium of Audenried’s top scholars in the Junior and Senior classes with Philadelphia native and fellow music legend Kenny Gamble (of the song writing duo Gamble & Huff). McDaniels speaks to GRYSCL about the movement and industry that we call hip-hop, the future of the culture he contributed to and the architects that helped to set the foundation.
