ThroughWHOSE welcomes Jeff Staple to our “Featured Friends.” We are so excited to have Jeff contribute o this project. For those of you who are not familiar with his name you are familiar with his aesthetic. Jeff has collaborated/consulted for Nike, Heineken, Microsoft, Sony, Lotus, Timberland, New Balance, Burton Snowboards, Converse, The Gap, HBO, Levi’s, New Balance, Uniqlo and more! He also designs his own clothing line STAPLE which you have probably seen on your favorite hoop star or musician, to say the least he’s busy. We saw Jeff at a Yuna show (he was one of the first to write about the Malaysian Songstress in his publication REED pages), and he took notice of the ThroughWHOSE camera and shared the excitement of the project. Not owning a point and shoot himself we where so excited to put a camera in his hands.
