new american occasions

i'm a big fan of Santiago Mostyn's portraits.

these images are from "New American Occasions," a series of photographs he took during the Miss Rockaway Armada's trip down the Mississippi River on a raft built out of reclaimed junk.

to me his photos have a dash of Hanna Liden and Justine Kurland's tribalness, with a pinch of Alec Soth. comparisons aside, i really appreciate the adventurous spirit in the work. i think he is really poised to take off.

(please) check out more from "New American Occasions" here and at Tiny Vices.
