30-year-old Silver Lake artist Mark Rubenstein has spent the last ten years killing it in the photo industry. A favorite in the fashion world, he's shadowed everyone from famed duo Mert & Marcus and spent the last five years working with Marc Jacobs. (His post card series for the designer's Bookmarc store was a huge hit.) A master at capturing light, Rubenstein has just released a limited-edition, 100-copy photo book called Gone By Dawn that's available now at Opening Ceremony LA and Hemingway & Pickett.
"I've been around some of the most influential people and it's really had a huge effect on me," the artist tells us. "Now older and doing more editorial, my years of being in fashion has influenced the work I produce." Perks of being on big-name shoots include connecting with rising models like "Blurred Lines" star Em Rata and Racked favorite Leore Hayon who's featured in his new tome.
