Philadelphia artist Dan Murphy for HUCK Magazine's 45th Issue, curated by Ed Templeton (!!!). I arrived in Philly on an Amtrak to meet Dan in his home city, and we spent the next few hours riding bikes around town. We visited a gallery where he had a group show and then rode over to ICY Signs' outpost in North Philly. You're familiar with Dan's work if you've listened to Kurt Vile's record "Wakin' on a Pretty Daze." He and his partners did the lettering on the mural that graces the album cover in collaboration with renowned artist Steven Powers. I loved shooting this assignment because I got to combine riding bikes and photography, and I also grew up outside of Philly, so it was like a little homecoming for me.
