Images of the Week 08.12.12

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting burnt and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head *

Here’s our weekly interview with the street, this week featuring Bad Cat Crew, Cassius Fouler, Entes, Jay Shells, Kremen, ME, Miss Me, Mr. Toll, Nick Walker, Oly, Pesimo, and Smile You Are Beautiful.

Mr. Toll. I’m telling you, it’s so hot you could fry an egg on the street! Sunny side up please. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Laverne found that her new summer ensemble was surprisingly breezy as she picked up the telephone. Ned looked up guiltily and pretended not to have been staring. Smile You Are Beautiful (photo © Jaime Rojo)

It was like you could see the entire city inside of him, just beneath his skin. He stared at me dead-eyed and said, “I own these streets.” Kremen. Detail (photo © Jaime Rojo)
