Ecco Eco blog

For all you blog lovers out there (of course we're one of them), be sure to check out this new one Ecco*Eco. We recently got in touch with Abigail and she's so sweet, so we just wanted to give her blog a little shout out. Her posts are beautiful and romantic, and we discovered this great online Eco-style magazine Thread by the BBC through it- who knew!

Interview with our Fall 08 Photographer- Elizabeth Weinberg

So one of the best things about doing Sublet is that we get to work with some amazingly talented people who are just living and trying to create something they find meaningful as well. We feel really strongly about supporting them, so we're going to try and do interviews with some of the people we've collaborated with. Hopefully letting you guys get to know them and their work a little better.

How we met Eliz:
We actually found her through myspace. She had taken a beautiful picture of a friend of ours Alix. A few emails later, we met up and decided to do our fall 08 shoot together. She actually introduced us to both of our fall 08 models as well- Kristin and Emily who are both talented singers in their own right.

Name: Elizabeth Weinberg

Hometown: Franklin, MA

Currently living: Brooklyn, NY

What got you into photography?
Not sure exactly... shooting photos was just something I did to document my life and it became more and more a part of something I did every day.

What and who inspires your work?
I'm mostly inspired by my friends and nature--the woods, the sun, the beach.

You've done some amazing projects- ranging from portraits of Santogold and Cat Power, reportage for Bonnaroo, assignments for Nylon magazine - is there any project that was your favorite and why?
Shooting Bonnaroo for two years was really fun because there were no rules. I got amazing access and was able to get backstage portraits, live stuff, documentary type stuff, everything. The light was really amazing. The NYLON assignments also fun because it was one of my first forays into editorial fashion photography. I had a blast.

Any good websites or blogs on your radar?
I read
aphotoeditor.com, youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com, photoshopdisasters.blogspot.com, and tons of friends' photoblogs... too many to list!

Who are you listening to now?
I'm all over the place. Kate Bush, Descendents, St. Vincent, Stereolab, Elliott Smith, Fleetwood Mac.

Parsons MFA photography exhibit

Last night we went to Parsons MFA photography exhibit to support one of our very talented models Sam, who we shot for our upcoming spring 09 collection. It's always exciting to see work from young artists, whose names you'll hopefully be hearing more of in the next few years.

Be sure to check out Sam's site. Parsons chose her photograph as the front image for the exhibit, which you can see why below.
Also, check out some more talented artists below, whose work is pretty inspiring.
