“In The House!”

Tobin Yelland Slideshow + Talk
Sunday May 18th at Photo Epicenter, San Francisco

Photo Epicenter
26 Lilac St.
San Francisco CA 94110

Slideshow will run approx 1 hr. and starts promptly at noon on Sunday, May 18th.

Photographer and Filmmaker Tobin Yelland’s work features the day-to-day experiences of many different characters playing out their sexuality and aggression with youthful invincibility. Since the age of fifteen, Yelland has been steadily documenting the shadowy existence of youth and its vestiges in day-to-day life. In conjunction with the Being True Photo Exhibition, Tobin will be showing and talking about his work Sunday May 18th at Photo Epicenter. See a sample of Tobin’s work at

GM: Sunset Magazine & Cliff May

post/photos: Geoff McFetridge

The Sunset Magazine offices were designed by Architect Cliff May (Rancho Style) in Menlo Park, California. I love Sunset. I am a product of the suburbs and west coast culture in general so their offices are sort of the Taj Mahal for me. Sunset Magazine was like Thrasher Magazine for west coast families, it got you stoked to live in a glass-walled ranch style home, gardening, roadtrips and camping.

Cliff May built some really livable and beautiful homes. What is interesting about both Sunset and May is how you can draw a direct line from cookie cutter tract homes to the congested sprawl of California now.

About a mile away from the Sunset Magazine offices is a fun (free/no pads) skatepark in Menlo Park. The iPhone takes really interesting motion photos. Check the ollie below. Looks like the deck is twisting and trying to get a kickflip for the kid.
