Todd Selby's "Rockaway Taco"

Rockaway Taco, A Selby Film from the selby on Vimeo.

From V magazine:

Todd Selby, the bespectacled photographer who many have let snoop into their home with his digital camera, is stretching his creative legs. After years snapping away and recording his findings on his website The Selby, he’s testing out a new medium: short documentary-style film. His first work, called Rockaway Taco, is based on a day in the life of Andrew Field, a man who sleeps on roofs and keeps bee hives and likes to surf.”I’ve always wanted to do film, but it took me a long time to figure out my approach,” Selby explains now. “I’m trying to stay true to the root of what The Selby is, which is all about telling stories about dynamic people and their creative spaces.” In this case, that means getting up before dawn and shooting some beach scenes, then moving to Field’s roof to wake him up and follow him to work at Rockaway Taco. “It was one very long day,” Selby smiles.
