Part II; January 10, 2014. Downtown Los Angeles, I shot near the Fashion Market Buildings, Walked by the New acnestudiosnetwork , the acehotel and Spring Street near 6th. I wanted to show what people were wearing while the rest of the country is bundled up and coping with freezing temps.
My good friend, Donnie Madden, posted this picture on his timeline today. It reminded me of the quote from the Tao Te Ching I posted a few days back. “In the practice of the Way, everyday something is dropped.”
The great thing about #williegomez is he went in there with this #andalusian champion never having worked with a horse and played the role perfect first take! @williegomez ur a beast babe! #fashion #editorial #donniemadden
#tbt I have a thorough respect for my previous subjects and teams. Photography has kept its artistry for me and has not become a task. This is all due to creative people who care about the work more than the accolades and financial compensation. Nothing is free. No ones time is free it cost all of us something to create art that is lasting. We lose sight of things in the paper chase. I’m not a household name and that is okay. I am free from those pressures. Here is another free soul: @williegomez in a piece from @akaiitoboutique shot and styled by #donniemadden
