I had the great fortune to shoot the worlds largest and oldest producer of denim in the world Cone Denim for London’s very own Monocle Magazine.

Based out of Greensboro, NC Cone Denim White Oak has produced denim for Levi Strauss & Company, as well as served to supply the US Military in World War I. They still run their legendary Draper X3 shuttle looms. These mid-century narrow looms are the only ones still producing selvage denim on the western hemisphere today.

Below are some of the images that didn’t make the cut into the magazine, but still are some of my favorites. Many thanks to Delores and Stahle’ for showing me around, and to Pat Richardson, Donald Jenkins, Jerome Arnold, Mildred Bolen, Mike Roberson, Debbie Lindsey, and Dawn Whitted for letting a strange bearded man with a camera photograph them!

Couple of snaps, just wanted to give you guys something, since I’ve not been around due to being behind and such…

First, I love the different weird people downtown to shoot… this man had no bike.

Lastly, here is a preview image from the editorial I shot for Monocle Magazine. As soon as the magazine comes out I will post the rest!

You can’t drive to Greensboro from Raleigh, and not stop by the Red Oak Brewery! Delicious brews to be had!

Finished up a shoot documenting the oldest Denim Mill in the world (right here in North Carolina) for Monocle Magazine’s Dec/Jan Issue.

Can’t wait to post pics when the issue comes out! I do want to thank Delores & Stahle’ for showing me around and helping during the shoot!
