I’ve been making work with the homie Aaron @gloss.baby_ for a while and am appreciative of him and people in the same good spirit for conjuring up and distilling the shit we are condemned together and outside of immediate proximity. This is one of those test shots I forgot. The groove sets a vibe I can dig. Thanks as always, Fam. #color #makeportraits #time #blues #fam #portraiture #studio

Some selects with my brotha Alex Bailey @alexand_bailey of @blackoutside_inc , one of the most down-ass relationships I’ve ever had with a client. I believe not only in the work they do but the people that they are from my experiences with them, from the first day I was humbled in talking with Angelica @angoutside , peace to @kiamber.t . I literally get excited when thinking about you all. Peace and love everybody. I hope you are good. #headshots #blackoutside #portraiture #makeportraits #family

@edwardw.h.art Edward Harris was gracious enough to share some space and time with me. We made images of various pieces of his soft sculpture, mostly his lovely piece entitled Jorge Andrews from his Precious Bodies series. It is always joyfully edifying to kick it with Ed. They bring the most to the work. ✌🏾🖤 I hope y’all are good. #artist #family #softsculpture #portraiture #makeportraits #studiogatherings #art @the_studio_7_rental

It’s been a while since I last posted, and ‘I’m back’ can’t yet —if ever — be declared. However, I will be posting new work at some point as well as people that continue to work with me and remain so vital to my life practice. I’ll be posting an edited series I made of @edwardw.h.art. Thanks so much to them. I hope you all have been good and well. I hope to hear from y’all. Peace and love #artist #softsculpture #thoughts #family #art #photography #weallwegot

I’ve been ruminating on us, outside, where the winds gust heavily and the waves crash inside the rush. Nature is a mother, and they are unmerciful. I know of love in that place, wishing us love in treachery and through tragedy. We are hard fought. Peace and love. #peace #words #fam #haptics #glissant #ontology #timeless #affect
