Saul

Saul

I’ve always liked this shoot with my friend Saul. He was very comfortable in front of the camera. I miss those old doors to my studio at The Other Side Arts. I often got lost in the layers of paint. As a matter of fact you may see that texture in a macro shot in […]

Lonnie

Lonnie

This is one of my early fashion pieces. I worked with designer, Armando Guerra on creating this haunting look of our friend and model, Lonnie. I’ve always love the severeness of this piece. The stark black and white of the garment as well as the lighting and makeup. There’s a certain level of desperation in […]

When you’re falling, Dive

When you're falling, Dive

These photos were taken shortly before and immediately after my friend Sunny gave birth to her daughter Iris.

I felt like childbirth is a perfect example […]
