Growing up in a white-bread, middle-class, Chicago suburb didn’t necessarily yield any kind of interesting shenanigans. So whatever kind of action I could get my hands on I was a part of. Mostly just skating… but early on it was all about trespassing on construction sites and/or abandon places. My friends and I would ride our bikes to find whatever kind of danger we could get into at these sacred places. The house pictured here would be a prime target.
this is my friend sophia. she will be getting married in two weeks and then moving to NY.
I will miss her.
When I was little my uncle’s girlfriend owned a farm in Upstate New York. My favorite animals were pigs, and every time we drove up to the farm I would pet and play with this one particular pig. Well one day I searched and searched and this particular pig was nowhere to be found. Later on, we were sitting at the dinner table, and I asked my uncle’s girlfriend where my favorite pig went. She looked down at my plate and said, “You’re eating him”.
Special thanks to Topsy Design for collaborating with me on this photo shoot! And thank you to Sam for assisting, Erica for doing the makeup and being a fabulous model, Adam for being another fabulous model, and Morgan for being a fabulous little model.

She’s been asking me for ages to do some pictures of her, and I thought that this “Community” assignment would be the perfect opportunity.

Mateo Quintana is the only barber in the small community of Marfa, Texas. Born and raised in this town, he’s been running this same shop for over 30 years. He got that chair from his father, who was a barber in Marfa before him. I followed along to shoot photos as Matt Nuzzaco, a fellow Phoot Camper, received a hair cut and beard trim during our weekend visit. Follow the Phoot Camp blog to see everyone’s work.
I photographed the Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas this weekend and was interested to see what it would be like after all the recent controversy. What I found was a lot of love, good energy and great music. Hopefully this image conveys some of that “community” feeling. (more photos here)

So this past week I revived the tradition of the backyard BBQ at my house. There’s a different quality to a BBQ than a dinner … seems there’s more a communal process to the whole affair, from building the fire, comparing BBQing techniques, preparing the food, serving drinks, playing music … everyone seemed to find a role. Gathering around the fire to enjoy full plates of food we had prepared together was one of the warmest experiences I’ve had in a while. The food just tasted better.

Description: “Sending in this assignment from Jazzfest in new orleans. Really enjoying the southern hospitality and great sense of community. And making me think about the different ways that we create or experience community (or lack thereof) depending on many social factors of culture, family, geography, tradition. And it’s inspiring this assignment. One word concept: “Community”… Interpret anyway you like … People, place, experience, idea, etc. “
I photographed this image while working on a personal project about my grandmother.

Entitled “Route 66”
A shoot for Cadillac starting in the deserts of Lancaster, through “The Valley of Fire”, finishing on the old strip in Las Vegas. Shot with a “pre AI” Nikor lens selection from the 50’s to enhance the “35mm film look” of that era..
I was fortunate enough to photograph Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca for the May/June issue of Miller-McCune Magazine. You can see outtakes from the shoot on my blog (dibblephoto.tumblr.com) and in the New Work section on my site (christopherdibble.com).
