Last week I got to spend a day taking photos of Karl Larson, Matt Evans, and Pat Swoboda, the trio better known as Bearthoven. We spent the morning tinselling a couch, eating bagels, and drinking coffee, which is how I’d like to spend most mornings. Between taking photos, rearranging lights, eating more bagels, and burning the straight, plastic hair on the bear masks into curls, these three had me laughing to the point of tears more than once. I never expected anything to come of a night filled with bear jokes and album title puns (P.S. Matt, Karl, and Pat: New ones! Bear and Loathing in Las Vegas, George Bearnard Shaw… ?) last fall, but it definitely has, and I’m so incredibly glad to have been a part of the visual aspect of Bearthoven.
Visit their FB page to hear recordings, and be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming shows including one on April 22 at New Amsterdam Records.
The proof of my second photo book, “homebody”, just came in and will soon be available at jaimeboddorff.com for approx $8 (inc shipping)!
I’ve been working with VNDL lately on interviews with bands and artists, and my first interview with Assateague was published yesterday. Check it out at VNDL Magazine!

I was asked to film Anawan at Glasslands this past week, so I have some photos of Trevor, Eliza, Ethan, and Alice to share. Footage coming soon!
