Maison Kitsuné is pleased to welcome the exclusive exhibition and book launch “Spirit Myth” by photographer, filmmaker and art director Todd Cole.

Todd’s new project was born out a desire to create a new mythology around his home of Hollywood, California.  For a century, young dreamers have walked Hollywood Boulevard, full of unbridled ambition and chasing a dream.  Cole befriended one of these young dreamers, a local skateboarder named Ryan Holland. Together, they would journey out onto Hollywood Boulevard, without any plan or expectations, find the light, and let the photographic moment reveal itself.

Concurrently, Todd began photographing, once a day, wild rushes of succulents and cacti at the end of his street.  Juxtaposing these portraits of old growth cacti with the portraits of Ryan revealed a beautiful tension between the seemingly ancient landscape, contrasted against the temporality of the idealistic young dreamer.

These two dichotomies merged into singular vision, and he began to see the shimmer of a myth — a myth about transience, permanence and dreams.

Discover “Spirit Myth” at Maison Kitsuné Silver Lake from July 10th to September 9th 2021. In case you are in New York City, make sure to stop by Maison Kitsuné New York Perry-Archives & Gallery on July 15th for an exclusive book signing session.

RSVP for Silver Lake opening preview & book launch here and for New York book signing here.
