Long known for his directorial prowess thanks to work for the likes of Sonic Youth, Bjork, The Beastie Boys, The Pharcyde, Fatboy Slim and many more, Spike Jonze actually got his start in photography — a fact evidenced by his latest endeavor. Following the release of their collaborative Kodak drop back in August, Jonze and Opening Ceremony teamed up this fall to highlight some of Spike’s never-before-seen 35mm photographs. Juxtaposing the label’s own looks with Jonze’s shots, Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon translated the works into digital prints that seamlessly showcase the clothing while celebrating the imagery. Here, Leon an Jonze reflect on the curatorial process and the inspiration behind the collection, as well as the personal memories that coincide with the images.
Check out the video above and head on over to Opening Ceremony’s site to see some of the works.
