He took so many photos and saw so many amazing things - enough to fill a book. So that's what they did - together he and Diplo put together a tome documenting their adventures.

In his time away from traveling and contributing to magazines like Flaunt, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair, Shane has delivered us this Recommends:
1. Maya Deren- Meshes of the Afternoon.
Maya Deren was one of the original auteurs of American film. She made a lot of films that would be considered fresh by even todays standards. She is a big influence on David Lynch and Kenneth Anger.
2. Kenneth Anger- Fireworks
Kenneth Anger is still alive and in his 80s. The man has a pentagram on his chest and has recently joined the Church of Aleister Crowley. 'Scorpion Rising' was a big influence on David Lynch's 'Blue Velvet' and although 'Lucifer Rising' and the 'Invocation of my Demon Brother' may be more popular, this, an early film he made as a teenager, is still my favorite.
3. Robert Frank's The Americans
Robert Frank is a huge influence on me. In the 1950s he traveled from his home in Switzerland to the United States to document the culture of America at the time. It was a snapshot of the country and it is now a timeless classic.
