I've landed in Florida and it's humid as whoa (as is to be expected), my first time back since my 25 day trip to Miami for Art Basel with Angelina. I love road trips but I have to say I hate to fly. I'm not afraid of flying but a 3 day road trip feels like an adventure whereas even a 1 day flight feels like a waste of standing in lines, being crammed in to tight spaces (I didn't even have the luxury of a window seat), overpriced food, and unsatisfying sleep so I'm just glad that it's over (for now). I'm actually a little more stoked for this Florida trip than past ones because after just a few days in South Florida I'm heading to America's oldest city: Saint Augustine. I love a place with history and I might be getting hooked up with a model there so we will see! Either way I'm excited to explore and spend some quality time with my family.
In today's set I spent a little quality time with someone from the Kung Fu Breakfast family, Yher. Yher aka Melissa Whyte and I have shot model sets together, she has Art Directed for me, and for this set she returned to the way we met as a street artist. What made this especially exciting for me was that her mural happened to be down the street from me in my hood of Highland Park. Yher is only 21 and one of the more promising street artists in LA so it was great two spend a few days with her doing what she loves best and getting the chance to photograph her again doing some of what I am perhaps best known for. I feel pretty lucky to be able to pass one of my favorite collaborators pieces so often and today I'm proud to present it to you.
