Ever since we began back in 2008, we have worked with photographer David Mushegain every issue to bring you a collection of some of the raddest people from all around the world. David shoots and gets to know the young kids he meets on his travels, through his friends, or just walking down the street, and we are always happy to share his discoveries with you. Our weekly postings of David’s Last People continue right here.

Okay I met Tamara Kaboutchek years back…I kind of had a crush on her the second I met her as she is really pretty and super-sweet…winning combo for sure… I have some stuff to say about Tamara but let me just copy and paste this quote she sent me today. “I am currently recording my latest songs in my little home studio on an island in Greece, with Martin, my coworker in this project. We are using some traditional Greek instruments and have asked some of our friends from the island to come and play on some of our tracks. It should be interesting…Although this new record I’m preparing will sound more electric than my first album, which was more folk. I am planning to release an EP next fall, in which you will find French, Spanish, Greek, and English songs.” Okay cool. I didn’t feel like rewriting that. So Tamara is a musician. I guess you figured that out. I don’t know that much about her music but I know a bit about who she is as a person and I adore her. Actually she is the girl Christine Knaust moved in with. (I wrote about that in case you are saying, “WTF is he talking about?”) Tamara’s whole family is awesome. Her family lives in the Marais and her sister Fiona is just awesome. I want to feature her for the next issue. I got in a bit of trouble with her parents last summer cause I rented her house for my show at colette and had a few young artists stay with me and the neighbors were not too happy. Sorry, Tamara’s parents! I’m nice, I swear. Tamara is an awesome hang and I always love visiting with her when in Paris…Tamara, another must of 2012. We shot this over in the Marais on some little street…
