Jack Daniel’s commissioned artists (or “craftsmen,” call them what you wish,) for a project based around the theme of independence. Helms Workshop carved a poster out of the wood from a Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel and hand-sewed a flag, Jon Contino silkscreened and hand-drew a poster, and Derek McDonald hand-painted 2 signs: 1 on the door of an old pickup truck, and the other on a signboard.
Jack Daniel’s got me with this one. Hook, line, and sinker.

When you live in a big city like Tokyo, subways are just a part of life. You’re cramped and uncomfortable, but so is everyone else. Quickly you learn to surrender to the jostling crowd; you relax, breathe, and go with the flow, knowing full well that it’ll all be over shortly. Photographer Michael Wolf, with his series entitled “Tokyo Compression”, captures these inbetween moments. Wolf has managed to capture the moment of surrender, when the subjects allowed themselves to let go of their discomfort and be swept away with the rushing current. There is a rhythm to life in a big city, and Wolf’s subjects are just bobbing their heads to the beat.
