VERSION 1.0 WAS pimpexposure.
congratulations! you have stumbled upon a photo stream that finally doesn't suck. and who runs this magnificent place? well you silly fuck none other than your friendly neighborhood pimp of course! yes i admit, i never intended on being associated with pimps when I started this whole gig. but the name stuck. and here i am. and most importantly here you are. yep, now you're just a few steps away from becoming a junior pimp yourself!
I can see you shaking with anticipation already. i bet you're probably really anxious to find out what the fuck this shit is all about. hold on tiger. first let's review a few things before you can officially be sworn in as a junior pimp.
five important principles of being a true pimpoholic on flickr:
1. real pimps don't take this shit on here that serious. i mainly use flickr as a social outlet for my words and art. my idea of fun is to have a light hearted approach. if you are offended at something i said on here, i probably just thought i was being funny. pimps don't typically don't mix well with people who have their head up their ass.
2. say whatever you want in pimptown! pimps dont block anyone. we don't even erase any comments...ever. it's fucking romper room here on flickr where the pimps play. don't be afraid to be yourself here either. there is no censorship here in any capacity! pimps accept all words. in fact we even encourage the bad ones! fuck cunt shit ass whore cock bitchassswankerhole.. these words are a-ok here you silly goose.
3. pimps don't like groups. i belong to only one group which is one group too many. i have almost no interest in joining any other groups. please don't invite my pics to groups either. groups just aren't my thing.
4. pimps don't steal images, don't be a thief! i actually invest a lot of time doing this shit. if you choose to steal my photos, you are a dickless motherfucker. i hope you contract every disgusting STD imaginable. if you dont have a dick, you can gag on mine for being a dirty thief. on the other hand, if you want to simply use the image for something constructive or actually purchase any prints, just email me. for those of you that have pictures that don't suck, i'm open to trading pics too.
5. if all this pimp shit bothers you, we got two options ...first is you can write me a flickr mail... i'm all ears! i probably never intended on ruining your whole entire internet existence or hurting your feelings. i did so without realizing it because I'm oblivious, among other things. really just realize you are just being an oversensitive emotional wimp. your other option is simply blocking me. remember, pimps dont block anyone, so i won't block you. you're the one with the problem bud, not i. i'm a pimp after all, come on
thats about it! if you got through that, please get in line to pick up your new official pimpoholic membership card. welcome aboard planet pimp... where you can now be a pimp too!
the final disclosure:
i listen to Bowie, am addicted to peanut butter, drive an orange car, and I don't like Walmart. that about sums it all up.

"pimp's work explores the relationship between acquired synesthesia and fedora ethics.
With influences as diverse as Derrida and Frida Kahlo, new synergies are created from both simple and complex textures.
Ever since he was a child he showed exception to the traditional understanding of the mind. What starts out as vision soon becomes corrupted into a cacophony of power, leaving only a sense of decadence and the chance of a new beginning.
As his temporal forms become clarified through boundaried and diverse practice, we, the viewer are left with a statement of the inaccuracies of our era.
and he has a huge cock. Hereafter referred to as Cock+."

"I met Pimp at a Dave Matthew's concert in 1998. Since we didn't have flickr back then, we became pen pals. Pimp would write me lyrics to Dave songs that he loved and told me it was his dream to follow the band as a roadie. Unfortunately, his dentist recommended that he get braces immediately and not go on tour with DMB. He promised Pimp that the braces would come off within a year and then he could tour with the band. 13 years later, and that damn dentist still won't take those braces off. Pimp is determined to ride with Dave and crew, and since they are still touring, this dream may finally become a reality some day. The teeth come first, though.
I still get letters frm Pimp, now in the form of flickrmails, often begging me to burn him a copy of Division Bell, as he sold his for a Dave Matthews bootleg. I need to go do that so he'll stop bothering me.
Aside from his obsession with Dave Matthews and The Division Bell, Pimp is one of the most hilarious, honest, foul, and friendliest people I have met here. He's a talented, creative photographer, a wonderful father to his daughters, and sometimes I read his lengthy writings. For various reasons, mostly good, he is definitely one of my favorite people on flickr."

"pimp has a rare gift - in that his writing is just as compelling as his images. Linger over his artwork and you'll find a delightful degree of depth and complexity. Read his blog and he's just as likely to piss you off as he is to inspire you.
Don't be too quick to judge. True story. It took me months to overcome my fear of pimp's sometimes shocking language, but once I truly took in the whole of what pimp had to say, I've never turned back.
Through his words and pictures - pimp is the SPICE of flickr. Amen.
Can I get a witness?"

Few facts about PIMP?!
*A pimp is an agent for prostitutes who lives off their earnings. *Pimping is illegal in most countries.
*The majority of pimps are men...
*PIMPS photography is abusive, with the pimp using techniques such as black and white or color...also psychological intimidation, photo manipulation and writing force to control the "prostitutes" minds....that is just awesome and cool....
*Pimp is known under the law as ...one awesome dude...and for sure one of my number one people here on flickr....
*Naturally In his United States, pimps are arrested and charged with pandering....so you have to think about it ass munch....
Keep inspiring us man!!!"

"Pimp ! what can I say.....
From the very first time I noticed you on flickr I was amazed.. Your images are always well thought out, always perfectly taken and always interesting and thought provoking to look at. You have produced some world class photographs. Slap that together with your must read descriptions and you have yourself an addictive photostream. Your images are a great insight into your life, and you hide nothing.. its amazing. I feel like I have known you for years.
I just love everything about your photography, everything about your words.. and respect you totally as a person.
You say it how it is... and thats a good quality to have buddy.
Also seeing the love you have for your children is so warming too.. an inspiration.
I just wanted to pop by here and thank you for being a great contact here on flickr, an amazing inspiration in photography, and most importantly a friend.
Take it easy bud !

"This man is a Legend!
His images and processing is so refreshing, and unlike any other I've seen on flickr. He strays away from the norm, and the casual yet imtimate portrayals of his girls really touch my heart. I absolutely love reading his blog posts as much as staring at his images, no one is the same, and the subjects are often intriguing, touching, and sometimes downright hilarious. And with each entry we get to see a little more of his outlook on life, and learn a little more about him as the person behind the photographer.
A true pimp with a heart of gold and the best hat collection I've ever seen, Ryan is someone I'm proud and honoured to have as a contact not once, but twice!
Absolute Legend :)"

"Ryan is hands down one of the most interesting people I've met on flickr. His photography is breathtaking. And his lengthy blog posts on each shot, when paired with his images, really provides a glimpse into his unique view of the world. He may touch on sensitive subjects at times, and he in no way holds back when speaking his mind, but his heart is good and he is one of the funniest, coolest photographers you will encounter on this site. If you haven't already added him, you best get on it! His work will blow your mind. True story."
