This series by photographer Vance Jacobs celebrates the “Old Goats” as they call themselves, who despite advancing age (or maybe because of it), swim in the frigid waters of the San Francisco Bay almost daily. The “Goats” are all members of the Dolphin Club in San Francisco and range in age from 65 to upwards of 90.
Jacobs is a triathlete who has swum in the bay before, but he can’t imagine swimming in 50-55 degree water without a wetsuit, let alone in the dead of winter or at that age. Jacobs says, “Having done a lot of athletics in my life and having been around a lot of elite athletes in different fields, I’m more impressed by longevity than being able to produce amazing numbers when you’re a teenager or in your early 20′s.” Let’s give them a round of applause.

Wood Architecture Now! Vol.2 is a new hardcover book by Philip Jodidio (Taschen) available mid-June. As soon as humans bravely moved out of their protective caves, they surely built protective structures out of wood. The ultimate renewable resource for architecture is thus the oldest, but also the most modern of materials. Thanks to computer-driven design and manufacturing techniques, wood can be cut and carved in the most astonishing new ways. – Courtesy Taschen

Scenes from Aziz Ansari’s adventure in Tokyo with David Chang and and James Murphy. All Images © Ture Lillegraven.
In late 2011, photographer Ture Lillegraven traveled to Tokyo with captains of their industries – comedian Aziz Ansari, chef David Chang, musician/producer James Murphy and GQ writer Brett Martin. Avid Twitter-user Ansari posted that he and his pals should go to Tokyo with the caveat that someone else should pay for it. GQ answered, and obliged. The photographic result was a smattering of energetic, fun and colorful Lillegraven images. It’s safe to say they had a good time. Lillegraven compiled outtakes from the Tokyo shoot in a promo book he sent out earlier this year, simply called “TURE: Three Photographic Projects from Ture Lillegraven” that included this adventure, Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon photographed in rural Wisconsin and the band Milo Greene shot in Big Sur, California.
Aziz Ansari is currently on tour. Check him out tonight at the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY.
