    Style  

    Continuing to shoot for myself is important. It’s part of what keeps my creative energy lit up…my concepts, my styling, my casting—my way. It’s totally mine. But it’s rarely executed without a team. Big or small, it’s always a better experience with a talented team of people who trust you and your vision.

    Creating art is more fun with your friends, yeah? Thank you Wolfe for stepping in front of my lens and enduring meticulous direction. You’re a real pro. Mariah, thank you for your feminine eye and finesse. Lastly, I want to thank my good friend Ali for not only the use of his Brooklyn loft space but for the access to his extensive vintage clothing collection. He pulled out this vintage raccoon fur coat…double-breasted, ankle-length, reminiscent of the 1920s collegiates of the northeast. We then threw it on Wolf and the shot went to an entirely different place.

    My comment has been edited because I don’t actually know how to conduct myself as a respectable human being in an anonymous environment like the Internet. Why is it that I want to disparage someone I don’t even know nor have ever met? I don’t know. What I do know is that Unabashedly Prep is F.E.‘s platform and his point of view…and it is his prerogative to eradicate any energy (including mine) that does not propel his vision forward.

    @Nelson—I create photographs, I write, I consult, and I design clothes & accessories.

    @Hunter—Above, I shared that this shoot was a personal project. The only thing I am profiling/marketing is my work…my point of view.

    What was this shoot for? What are you profiling/marketing?
