Dolly, Waylon, Loretta and Willie - all behind the lens of New York based photographer Stephanie Chernikowski. Chernikowski has been on the NY photo circuit since the early 70s when she moved to the Big Apple from Texas. She’s captured numerous legends with her 35mm and her photojournalism has appeared in countless publications including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Journal of Country Music & The New York Daily News.
Dang, a bunch of classic photography has been bubbling up over the past few weeks.

Whoop dee fucking doo indeed.
Ever feel like the Daily Show does better reporting and REAL questioning than most news shows?
It’s satire only reveals more truth than not.
Fuck the NRA.
I’m Australian and my class happened to watch this last week. We couldn’t breathe from laughing so incredulously at how illogical this man was being and how he considered Australia some alternate universe that didn’t matter. It’s amazing how we found the answer to gun violence, we took action and got rid of gun culture all together - and this is seen as some drastic, totally unrealistic movement by Americans. My generation, 90s kids, we grew up unable to imagine what a gun culture is even like. I couldn’t believe when I found out the US sells bullets in convenience stores! It’s a case of “You won’t know until you try it”. Obviously America is much bigger than Australia so the potential backlash is daunting. But our Prime Minister had to wear a bulletproof vest as he made his announcement to ban guns, yet he still did it and it still worked.
This. I wonder if I ever see the day of a gun free America, I would love to give that place a second try.
