A Look Inside SOLEDAD No.6


Soledad No.6 is now available at Amazon. Featuring a brand new interview I conducted with legendary Dutch filmmaker Nouchka van Brakel, this latest issue is just a few bucks and is over 100 pages. Along with the lengthy van Brakel interview, No.6 features an interview with Samm Deighan discussing her new book, The Legacy of World War II in European Arthouse Cinema, and contributions from Marcelline Block, Ruth LaSure, Tara Hanks, and Emily Clare Bryant.    

Getting the opportunity to interview van Brakel was one of the highlights of my professional career so far, and I am incredibly proud of this issue because of it. She discusses her entire career with a special focus on her films A Woman Like Eve, The Debut and The Cool Lakes of Death. These three films are featured in the remarkable new Cult Epics box set. Van Brakel also discusses the film she made with Sylvia Kristel as well as the rest of her incredible career.

Here are a few exclusive low-res sample pages from the issue.  

The POOR RICHARDS Photoshoot (Issue 4, July, 2015)


Of the in-house photoshoots featured in ART DECADES, far and away, my favorite remains the shoot we did, for issue 4, at my favorite bookstore Poor Richards in my hometown of Frankfort, KY, in 2015 with Kelly Hollon and Sara Elisabeth. Here are a few unpublished shots that I experimented with in the hopes of making a banner of sorts. It didn’t work, but I still love these images, and I am so glad my childhood haunt made an appearance in one of the issues.
