These are some portraits I shot of my friend Andrew when I was living in Brooklyn
in March. I had never met Andrew before and he came over to my place for me to take his picture – I had been shooting a lot of commercial stuff at the time and wanted to go back to my roots and do something quiet and soft. I put some of my blush on his cheeks & played with some dead flowers I had lying around.
At the end of the shoot we went to my rooftop and he started climbing the water tower – I have to say that it was really cold that day, also I’m terrified of heights so props to him for that!!
I love when I get to meet people for the first time & photograph them, it’s like a memory of that first impression. This one was a sweet cold spring afternoon.
