Who the fuck is Mr Mention? Some of you may know him as an asshole, a DJ, some may know he likes to take pictures. I know him all the above and a friend. When I first met him I can tell he held nothing back, he was honest. Through out the year I slowly learned home boy could shoot some dope photos but he never showed it off anywhere. He barely showed his work on Instagram. I would tell him he should really throw a show so we can all see it. He kept telling me he's not that serious about it but I don't give a fuck about being serious, I just wanna see some dope work, its entertainment. So maybe 3 years later here we are, Ren-dez-vous at his garage in North Park for his art show, about damn fucking time!
When I first arrived to the location, it was dark and I can see silhouettes of a group of people outside caused by garage light. When I first walked in I was caught by surprised. I knew Mr Mention was talented but I didn't know he was this talented. His angles, compositions, exposure, subjects were all on point. And it was all shot with a 35mm film camera! He had me thinking I need to step my game up, his work officially inspired me. I truly wish all of you were there to see it, because my iPhone photos does it no justice. I sure hope he throws another one. Thank you Mr Mention.
