My friends have this strange enjoyment with labeling me as a hipster. Just because I find most mainstream threads illogical, shoot 35mm, graze on a diet of kale and quinoa, and hang out in Silverlake –doesn’t mean that I am a hipster. Pft! I am just being myself… in a circle (scroll to the bottom.)
hip·ster (noun) \ˈhip-stər\
- A subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses.
- Definitions are too mainstream.
Well if I am one of these new subculture mole people, so are my friends! Here’s is the start of my cell phone portrait series “#ThisHipster.”
