When I interviewed Ja Tecson for Tastemakers, conversation started to brew about teaming up for a photography show. After going back and forth on concepts, schedules, locations, etc, we all came to an agreement. Illest would host “Snapshots” – a show featuring Ja’s personal collection at our Little Tokyo store.

This event is pretty personal for me. I’ve known Ja for a long time. He’s seen me progress in my many endeavors and now we finally have a chance to collaborate. Futhermore, this is my first event with Illest! As a managing editor, I normally stay on the Fatlace side of things, and now I’ve crossed the the bridge. So please, be there this Friday 9/12 as we open “Snapshots” to the public.
