LET US ROAM

As most of you know, one of the main collaborators that the Mattson 2 have worked with extensively for the past 7 years is the legendary sk8r musician Ray Barbee. The great folks over in Bozeman, Montana at Helio Collective recently did a series of artist profiles for Leica Cameras entitled Let Us Roam. Included in the ray Barbee portrait are some shots and sounds of the Mattson 2.

ARTO SAARI is a fellow Finlander (Mattson 2's nationality is mostly Finnish) and we've done some great work together; played music at one of his exhibitions, scored a composition for one of his Flip Sk8 videos he directed in Canada, and Arto recently did a photo shoot with us in Los Angeles.
