ANJA PYCIOR

«This world needs no human to shine in the brightest light to enchant us. My photographs getting charged with this surplus in order to make it conspicuous. I don’t want to manipulate, just showing the truth, getting involved with these places. Let them tell their stories and show the respect they deserve.» 

CHELSEA STERLING

«I’m Chelsea, the owner of Sterling Trading Company. When I’m not working, I’m tucked away in our mountain home cooking yummy meals and drinkin’ a cold Coors Light. If you ever find yourself down south in Co, pop by our gift shop & order somethin’ custom. » 

CLAUDIA SMITH

«I’m a tattooist from the north of England, living in London. I rode on the back of a bike before I took my first steps.  My parents even turned up to their own wedding on matching bonnevilles and full leathers.» 

CVLT COWBOY

«I’m an artist based out of Los Angeles, CA who specializes in traditional black work designs. My art speaks to the outlaws, the rebels, the outcasts, and the honkey tonks. It’s all equally sexy, disturbing and badass.  » 

SELINA | ANIMISTIC LEATHER

«I’m a huge dreamer, that’s who I am. As early as I can remember my parents were supportive of my imagination & creativity. I was always reading my library books, writing in journals, drawing, & painting. Always in my head & I’m for sure still like that.» 

COLT WRANGLER

«My mother has always had horses, so I’ve been riding my entire life but motorcycles didn’t become a part of the picture until my Father bought a Harley when I was about 11 years old. » 

JO | OZMA AUTONOMY

ELENA & SOFIA | THE COSTA SISTERS

«Two sisters named ‘The Costa Sisters‘ by everyone in our hometown because you’d never see us apart. It’s been almost 10 years since we quit our day jobs together and became official videographers. We shook up the wedding world and said ‘fuck tradition’! We broke all the rules and did things our way….» 

ELIZABETH | THE HORSETHIEF

«I grew up running through the woods of a rural town located in the Pennsyvania Wilds.

ALEX | THE YOUNG LASS

DINA | No. 9 METAL

FINN | JASPER KEYS 

«I’m a lost boy. I’m a jack of all trades and a master of none. I’m just a regular dude who got sick of regular life. I stepped off the beaten path and made a pact with myself to no longer pursue anything in life without a soul. I’m a writer, an outlier, a free thinker and a dreamer.» 

MADS | MAD GLASS GURL

«My Papa actually started teaching me how to do stained glass when I was about 12. I grew up spending hours in the shop with him, helping him with whatever glass project he was working on, and learning everything I could from him. When I was about 16 I made my first solo piece (with his help of course).»

STEPHANIE FOLEY 

«At this very moment I am a mother, homesteading on two acres and rounding up the chickens and bring in the dogs. In the next hour I’ll be a one woman ran silversmithing/ lapidary operation hand fabricating then back to the first hat. Best part of ranch life is watching the world you are building yourself grown with you in life.»

THE LAST KNIFE FIGHTER

«I’m The Last Knife Fighter, and I am an Outlaw Folk Artist & Philosopher. An  extremist, I love hard and I hate hard; but try to work on the frequency of the latter. I have lost what matters most to me in assorted ways, and gained more in the interim; stooping to build what was lost with worn out tools…»
