this is a dyptic of a friend of mine spiritualee. he is a musician who lives in my neighborhood, haight-ashbury in san francisco. he has a unique style, considers his fashion sense to the utmost degree, eats mostly organic food, has the most eclectic style in his bedroom of antiquities and the coolest mustache. we had a great time shooting together, and he is even a huge fan of radiohead. i knew we had some crazy connection. thats why we got along so well.
here i used a ring flash to create such a stark sense of lighting. the small hints of red in his outfit were intentional to contrast against the red wall. i am addicted to color photography and this is a prime example of why.
