“We went to the same high school and had been around each other from being in the same graduating class and being involved in music extracurriculars like chorus. However, we officially started becoming friends after being in the same history class in junior year where we bonded and eventually started dating. What began as helping each other with history homework and passing notes in class, evolved into all night phone calls and hanging out after school until our parents picked us up from our respective extracurriculars! We also had some close mutual friends who connected us and sped the process along!” – Winnie
Entrepreneurs, artists and creative types: we are people who have a craft and love to use it. Communicating your craft, however, can be quite a challenge. Most creative types spend their time on developing and focusing their skill, not selling it. Want to see an artist crumble under pressure? Just ask them to show you their process.
Photographing Sky is always a treat. The combination of our friendship and Sky’s transparent and camera-comfortable lifestyle means that we can both relax and make interesting, creative images. In this session with Sky, I wanted to capture a day in his life – traveling on the T, walking around Boston, spending time with his cat, shaving, the rush of creativity and sunset practice sessions.
As part of my photography series I have been interviewing some of my friends about some of the crux moments in their lives. A moment in which an event or a realization occurs, and you can’t go back to the person you were the day before. Skylar and Anna shared a really beautiful moment of their’s with me, and I re-interpreted it into this scene and stuck myself into it! To show you a bit of the process, I thought I’d include the shots I took while setting up the scene.
