The days that led up to this shoot involved heavy texting with photog Travis Blue, who I had yet to meet. Countless selfies in a wide range of sunglasses were sent by yours truly and epic inspiration descriptions that would have made Kurt Vonnegut proud, were sent by Mr. Blue. The team that came together to make the above magic happen is a testament to Travis Blue's talent and vision. I am incredibly proud to have been included.
Once upon a time I came across an Instagrammer named Teklan or rather Tekla Evelina Severin. Her palette dominated my little iphone frame and it was love at first site. I didn't know this woman, but I knew her colors and I would see them everywhere. Later, I was planning a trip to Sweden, where the lovely Tekla resides. I couldn't pass up the opportunity, so I wrote to her and soon we were planning a meeting. Coffee? Drink? Art gallery? I waited for her at the subway station, getting more nervous by the minute. Was this inspired blind friend date such a good idea?? Yes! It was! Coffee became art gallery, became dinner and drinks, became what I hope is a very long friendship. Check out her instagram and let us all pray that this wunderkind of color and beauty never stops creating.
