RVA Volume 5 Issue 9 – Snow Days

by | Jan 8, 2010 | POLITICS

Ah, snow days. Staying up late to see if school’s going to be closed or not, watching the flakes fall, and then viewing a world that is drastically different from just a few hours before, all from the same window. Don your boots, warmest clothes, and step outside to a crisp, clean air that makes you truly feel like you’re breathing.

Ah, snow days. Staying up late to see if school’s going to be closed or not, watching the flakes fall, and then viewing a world that is drastically different from just a few hours before, all from the same window. Don your boots, warmest clothes, and step outside to a crisp, clean air that makes you truly feel like you’re breathing.

In light of the recent blizzard, we decided to revisit 2009’s first snow storm, early this year. Photographer Ian Graham spent the night wandering the fan with friends, snapping images, and feeling like a care-free child. He works in digital, which is a stark contrast to the work of Phil Nesmith, utilizing photographic processes dating back to the 1880s and subject matter of modern warfare. This month’s issue offers multimedia art and a collaboration of words between elusive artist Nic DeSantis and RVA’s own S. Preston Duncan, and the work of photographer PJ Sykes showing his incredible continuing series In The Black And White, some of the area’s best concert and show photography. Elliot Robinson traveled to New York to interview Ryder Ripps, a man dedicated to the archeology of the internet past and present, and our issue wraps up with a fashion spread photographed by Kim Frost, our models clad in the offerings of the Need Supply Co.

From all of us at RVA, we hope you had a great holiday and are looking forward to the new year as much as we are! May all of your days have the magic and wonder of snow days.

Today, I’m getting a drink with a politician. Coffeeshop, lunch spot, in-studio - those are perfectly fine places to get to know someone, but there’s nothing like a good whiskey to loosen up a conversation. Garrett Sawyer is meeting me at The Camel for happy hour on a...

Richmond’s Next Mayor? Get to Know Maurice Neblett

I’m starting to really enjoy these interviews. My favorite part? Staying in touch with all of the candidates. They’ve all sent me prompts on issues they care about since our individual conversations; not one in aggrandizement of their contributions to anything. Just,...
