Substantia Jones, photographer and curator of the Adiposivity Project pinged me a while back and we got to chatting about doing a shoot. The stars aligned and we were able to meet and take some pictures.
And then the atmosphere itself aligned for a moment of effulgency heretofore unknown to me in terms of moments captured.
We were on the roof of a FOAF who’d been amenable to the shoot happening at his condo in NYC. We did a few setups and then went up to the roof, with a view of the river and surrounded by Harlem and wrapped in warm breezes.Â Substantia had only a few shots on the card when the warm breeze suddenly carried huge drops of warm rain down to earth.
I miss warm rain. Se, we don’t get that in San Francisco. And so much came rushing back to me. The smell of rain on a heated sidewalk. The feeling of being wet…and not minding it. All of that so real and so rich and I was so happy to be at HOME and outside and … free.
And this is me in that moment.
And I hope you have moments such as these too.
