A Variety of Pleasures featuring Camille Kolo, Tori Wolff, Alexis Piligian & Andy
Today I am going to do a mix of babes, inspired by the recent ongoings in my life. This weekend Jim lost his younger sister, someone that meant so much to him. I saw her grow up from being a kid to an amazing, independent and beautiful woman. One of the last times I saw her as we smoked bowls she let go of her shyness and talked to me about how much my work inspired her because it depicted a person’s rawness and beauty and thanked me for capturing people that normally wouldn’t be, she went to get a camera to start shooting soon after. Death is something I haven’t had too much experience with, I lost one of my best friends 5 years ago and I feel like I closed a curtain to those feelings. I don’t like being sad and I don’t like asking why. Things just are.
So, here are these two sets. Both showing the rawness and beauty of the subjects and both having different stories. The shoot with Camille, Tori and Alexis was so unexpected, so beautifully random, one of those moments that life surprises you with. We were at a Santoros show just hanging when Camille throws the idea out there and we made it happen. I loved having these three differently gorgeous women letting me photograph them and even the different color/type of panties they were wearing were beautiful, it was so casual. All humans are so different and I fucken love it.
The shoot with Andy was long overdue, we had been talking about it for some time and after a few cancellations we made it happen. I knew what I wanted to do with him and I’m stoked that it worked out. I’m pretty open with the things I like, and like I have expressed before I love cock, so I wanted these sets of images to show that, my gaze of my favorite body part. These two moments just were, look how beautiful these four people are.
