At some stage towards the end of 2019, we asked our friend and New York-based photojournalist Michael Magers to nip over to Brooklyn to catch up with someone who has been a close Carvery Studio family member for well over a decade; Will Holland, aka Quantic.
Episode 1 in this two-part podcast delves deep into Quantic’s past, beginning back in Brighton with his early musical influences and finishing in Colombia where his longstanding love affair with tropical and Latin sounds was well and truly ignited.
The images accompanying this podcast were taken by Michael Magers, a documentary photographer and journalist whose travels to Japan, Haiti and Cuba culminated in his recent publication ‘Independent Mysteries‘, a collection of intimate images, each one overflowing with vitality. Michael shot Quantic at his new recording home, Selva studio, on a vintage 4×5 Graflex Crown Graphic. The photos of which have been annotated below detailing each unique piece of equipment.
Head over to Bandcamp to check out Quantic’s releases.
