BRE AND I GOT TOGETHER AT AN AMAZING OASIS OF DESIGN AND SUSTAINABILITY IN MPLS: WINSOME GOODS. WE WERE ACCOMPANIED BY DANA LOGAN, A VINTAGE CLOTHING CURRATOR FOR KOLLEKTIV VINTAGE AND BRAND MANAGER AT WINSOME GOODS. THE THREE OF US HAD A BEAUTIFUL TIME CONVERSATING OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS BEFORE DIVING IN.

I MOVED MY FOCUS TO BRE’S HAIR. WE SPOKE OF HOW SHE LIVES IN HER HAIR AND HOW SHE LIKES IT TO FEEL. WE DISCUSSED WHERE WEIGHT SHOULD SIT ON HER HEAD AND VICE VERSA. EACH HEAD OF HAIR AND THE PERSON WEARING IT IS SO TRULY THIER VERY OWN. I TRY TO FIND THE BEST SHAPE POSSIBLE THAT CAN BE STYLED IN THE MOST SIMPLE WAY TO PROVOKE THE BEST POSSIBLE TEXTURE.

BRE, DANA AND I DOVE IN AND STARTED SHOOTING. WE DISCUSSED MOVEMENT OF THE LIGHT AND THE DARK, BOUNCED IDEAS OF EXPRESSION, AND FOUND OUR GROOVE. WHEN EDITING THE PHOTOS YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL WHEN BAM! IT ALL COMES TOGETHER AND THE GROUP FLOW TURNS INTO ONE SOURCE OF ENERGY. THAT MOMENT IS MY FAVORITE. ITS SUCH A INTIMATE FEELING OF HARMONY AND TOGETHERNESS.

MY FOCUS ON INTIMACY IS A PRACTICE. INTIMACY TO ME BOILS DOWN TO BEING IMMERSED IN A SACRED SPACE WITH NO DISTRACTIONS. THIS EXPRESSION OF THE PRESENT MOMENT IS FADING AWAY IN OUR CULTURE TODAY. I AM HERE TO STAND UP FOR IT, FIGHT FOR IT… TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE AN ENERGETIC SHIFT THAT IS VERY MUCH NEEDED.
