Last month, some friends and I went to a photography exhibit at Smashbox Studios that was part of the Lucie Foundation’s “Month of Photography” series. I love events like this because I like finding new artists, but I was mainly excited to see the work of Valerie Chiang, a photographer I’ve been following for a couple years. I wanted to meet her and say hi.
When we got to Smashbox, it was completely swarming with people, and I realized I had no idea what Valerie looked like. So I literally just kept asking random folks, “Do you know Valerie Chiang?” Yeah…I was totally the creep at the show.
I finally found her, in case you’re wondering, and she was sweet as could be. So much talent packed into this tiny, cute little person.
Valerie’s work is oddly peaceful, almost like the calm before a storm. It’s a bit otherworldly and very dreamy, sort of like that scene in Barton Fink where Barton gets absorbed by a painting on his hotel wall. To me, her work is right up there with the likes of Alex Prager and Catherine Servel, and I think she’s got a huge future in the photography industry.

They Roared Films is a brother company to They Roared Vintage, and we’re so happy and excited for the release of Jet, a short film by Jordan Chesney.
A California native who grew up in England, Jordan now lives in Los Angeles and has been making films since he was 18. He also happens to be my husband, so I may be a bit biased when it comes to how much I love his work, but I think he’s brilliant and extremely talented. He’s my hero. Jordan has the ability to pull things together to create a truly amazing final product. He’s resourceful and creative—two things that every director should be. His pieces are consistently detailed, well thought out, and beautiful. He can take any subject and bring it to life. He also happens to be the hardest-working person I’ve ever met.
Jordan’s body of work consists of documentaries, fashion films, music videos, and now Jet, his first dramatic short. I couldn’t be more excited and proud of him.
He agreed to answer questions from me about the shooting process and what …CONTINUE →
