Under Californian skies is where we set the scene. There's palm trees blowing subtly on Manhattan Beach, pool cue's breaking racks in Silver Lake and the sound of camera's snapping in Long Beach. Welcome to the dream sets of Xeroxed Paradise, the latest campaign shoot for the folks at No News.
With LA's very own Renae Carey behind the lens and The Allah La's Matt Correia as lead talent, the pair, in collaboration with Reverberation Radio, took the streets to capture the latest threads from the progressive counter cultured label.
